In the tenth game of the season, the Miami Marlins finally get their first win

The Yankees and the Pirates are 8-2!

The Red Sox have a rare trip to Pittsburgh later in the month - of course, I will be in Florida.

Last time they were here I went to all 3 games and it was excellent.

Just had a look to see how many games I've attended in Pittsburgh

Two at old Three Rivers (first was in 1998)
Twelve at PNC Park (most recent in 2016)

Plus one NFL (Raiders @ Steelers) and one NCAAF (Ohio @ Pitt) at Heinz Field - both in 2004

Nothing like a Steelers home game against a good opponent in the cold weather, the atmosphere is usually fantastic.  Pitt is hit or miss, mostly miss unfortunately as they are playing in too big of a stadium for their fanbase (being off-campus doesn't help the students either).

Three Rivers sadium was already gone by the time I got here.....but I did go to it's ugly sister staidum in Philly back in the 90's on a trip from the UK to see my brother who was studying in Philly.

I posted (and then deleted) a moan about ticket prices for the two Phillies v Mets games in London.
A few days ago, I was offered a ticket by the sales bloke at a friends travel company near Boston, MA
Trouble is, it was at a minimal discount and they wanted me to help sell some other tix, so I declined.

However, when by Friday evening they'd had no other takers, they gave me a ticket for free.

Glad that I went. It was a much more pleasant experience than for the first games in 2019 (stupidly hot and poor stadium layout).
They seem to have got their act together now.

Doesn't look like there will be any London games next season.
MLB hoped to play in Paris, but that plan has been abandoned.

Next planned London games are 2026
