“former home of the pirates!”

Small bits and pieces of Forbes Field still occupy a place in the Pittsburgh landscape. You can find home plate in its ceremonious location in the University of Pittsburgh's Hillman Library, located in Posvar Hall. Actually, the plate resides approximately 15 feet from it's historical location. If it was in the proper GPS location it would reside in one of the women's restroom stalls. A section of the outfield wall, from right-center field, marked 436 feet, still stands near the Cathedral of Learning, ivy included. Another section of wall marked 457 feet stands nearby.
