September 11-13, 2020 in Pittsburgh
The final series I want to highlight if you are looking to see the Mets on the road takes place September 11-13 in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. Why MLB doesn’t have the Mets playing a home game on 9/11 every single season is beyond me.
The Reds always open the season at home so it’s not like it would be unprecedented. But I digress.
PNC Park is widely regarded as having one of the best – if not the best – view in the entire game. Backed up against the Allegheny River, the Sixth Street Bridge and the downtown skyline create a backdrop that words just cannot describe.
The chance to catch a game at PNC Park would be reason enough alone to make this trip and when you add in the prospect of visiting the Andy Warhol Museum and going a short distance to Kennywood Park, an amusement park that opened in 1899, it’s a no-brainer.
As the 2020 season approaches its close, these three games in Pittsburgh could be extremely important for the Mets. While the team travels to play the Pirates every year, this series offers an opportunity to mix a beautiful ballpark with interesting sightseeing and competitive baseball.
