And yes,that ballpark is one of the best. I thought Camden Yards and the Jake in Cleveland were great,but PNC has them beat by far! Good luck to the Bucs,i think your suffering will be over soon. Less than 5 years,im sure.
Oh I do have faith. The folks that don't are the ones that have been life long fans, but even some of them are coming around. Really the key that holds the future in his hands for this franchise is Alvarez. If he fails then we are a couple years back from where we thought we should be at by now.
I love Huntington, love Hurdle even more, and the team looks good. I just want a .500 season so I can end this misery.

I've had Iron City Beer before also!
They also have some season ticket packages of $1 for each game. So $82 for season tickets.
The story behind the steel mills is sad, but we have overcome a lot and now we are more of a technology city. The towns I grew up in are just minutes from downtown and were steel mill towns. So many are now ghetto's and slum's.
