1. Re: Time gates open at PNC Park

I googled the question and came up with this:


which gives some info. about the ballpark and says the gates open 90 minutes before game time Monday-Friday and 2 hours before games on Saturday and Sunday. I have no personal knowledge of whether this is accurate or not, as I am in no danger of being too early to a game.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Here is what the website says -


Gates open one and one half hours (1 1/2) prior to game time on weekdays (Monday through Friday) and two hours prior to weekend game times (Saturday and Sunday) and Opening Day. The Riverwalk will open two (2) hours before weekday (Monday-Friday) games and two and one half hours (2 1/2) prior to weekend (Saturday-Sunday) games.(found under PNC a to z).

However, if you have a season ticket that you purchased from a season ticket holder, they will let you in 30 minutes earlier than the above policy. You just have to go in through the Riverwalk gate and then there should be an usher at one of the inside gates that will scan your ticket.

This is a great way to get a ball during batting practice as there are usually less people for the extra 30 minutes. Be aware that they do have BP on Sunday's or day games during the week. Best way to get tickets for PNC is on Ebay. Most of the time we can get them for less than face value. Let me know if you have other questions about PNC - where to stay, eat, park,etc - as we have been there each of the last four years.
