So where is the best place to park downtown for the Buccos game on a Sunday afternoon? I don't mind paying a bit if I don't have to walk 2 miles to the stadium in 90 degree heat.

George L Wilson has a small lot a few blocks from PNC Park. If you get down there early enough, that's always been one of my go-to places. But I usually only go on weeknights. Not sure how busy they get on Sundays. They're on the corner of Andersen and General Robinson.

I've never done it, but if you have time to kill, you could always park at the Gateway Clipper and ride over that way. You get dropped off right at the RF gate.

I'd park at the garage 1 block away from the stadium. I dont know what it's called, but if you are driving away from Heinz Field and towards Pnc Park its on the left side. My friend and I arrived at 10:30 for the 1:35 game and there was plenty of parking for $12.00.

No way I'm getting down there at 10:30am. Not tailgating. I'll be lucky if I'm there by 12:30 lol.

I'm from the north; don't know if this works for you... parking lot cat corner from the Warhol museum. The lot continues back towards the underpass, many spaces. Also $12.

*watching Cole pitch fab. Enjoy!

Burnett on the mound so now he'll have to hold them to one just to get a no-decision.

Yes so let's mortgage the future for one bat that teams can pitch around.

Tabata is clearly the answer in RF.

These guys must hate AJ. Two GIDPs for Tabata. God forbid they score some runs for him.

Man, Billy Ripken would probably be fun to go out with for a few beers, but I can't believe he's on TV.
