Pirates vs. Diamondbacks game and "A Day at the Ballpark" on Friday, June 22

Attendees at our SABR 48 convention this summer in Pittsburgh will have a special opportunity to visit PNC Park for an exclusive pregame "A Day at the Ballpark" session with Pittsburgh Pirates executives and players before the Pirates game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, June 22. Guest speakers and more details will be announced later this spring.

Please note: Our block of Pirates game tickets is no longer available. You can purchase a game ticket on your own by visiting Pirates.com/tickets.

SABR has reserved a block of tickets in the Corner Box (LF) section:

  • Corner Box (LF) section game ticket: $40 for members; $45 for non-members
    (game ticket includes "A Day at the Ballpark" session for registered attendees)

Transportation: PNC Park is within walking distance (0.7 miles) of our SABR 48 convention hotel via the Three Rivers Heritage Trail or the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Taxis and ride-share options are also available from the hotel. Visit our Transportation Tips page for walking directions to PNC Park.

How to pick up your game ticket: You will be able to redeem your game ticket at the registration desk using the chit system. If you do not care with whom you sit, you should turn your chit into your game ticket right away at the hotel. But if you want to sit with a friend, first make sure you have tickets in the same section — the SABR registration desk will not accept exchanges in different sections after you make your purchase — and then wait to turn in your chits at the same time, thereby getting tickets next to one another.

Bring a guest or spouse with the SABR 48 Ballpark Session pass: SABR members who wish to bring a guest or spouse to the ballpark session only on Friday, June 22 at PNC Park can purchase a SABR 48 Ballpark Session pass on-site during the convention for the low cost of $25, plus a Pirates game ticket.
