1930s & Earlier / Forbes Field
Picturesque Forbes Field was the home ballpark of the National League's Pittsburgh Pirates from 1909 to 1970. It was one of the first modern type ballparks made wholly of steel and concrete. It also was the first to have telephones in the press box and elevators. The first player to smack a home run over the double-decked right field grandstand was Babe Ruth in 1935. Undoubtedly the most famous home run in Forbes Field's history was socked by Bill Mazeroski to win the 1960 World Series. Every October 13, Pirate fans gather at the former site of Forbes Field (which has been absorbed by the University of Pittsburgh) to listen to the broadcast of that famous game on its anniversary. One strange fact about Forbes Field: Despite it being considered a pitcher's ballpark, a no-hitter was never thrown there.
