The Backyard Brawl Is Returning to PNC Park
The Pittsburgh Pirates organization announced today that West Virginia and the University of Pittsburgh will play a regular season baseball game on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at PNC Park.
This match-up will be the second consecutive season that this rivalry will take place at PNC Park as the Pirates hosted the two schools last season on May 14, 2019.
Head baseball coach, Randy Mazey, told the media "We are really excited to continue our series with Pitt at one of the most beautiful ballparks in baseball. Our guys always look forward to playing at PNC Park, and we hope this great opportunity continues for a long time."
