The Forbes Field baseball stadium opened in 1909 and was demolished in 1971. A section of the outfield wall and a flagpole are all that remain from the original structure. It was the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team from 1909-70 and was also used by the Pittsburgh Steelers and the University of Pittsburgh Panthers football teams.
Across the street from this scene, a plaque is visible on the sidewalk commemorating the location of the game winning home run hit by Bill Mazeroski to win the 1960 World Series.
