Taking Back the Ballparks - Pirates voting thread

We didn’t get a lot of nominees, but there were enough quality ones to give the electorate a decent choice on a potential replacement, though the only name the park has known is in the mix.

As always, choose 1)

A) Allegheny Park
B) Foundry Field
C) PNC Park
D) Roberto Clemente Park
E) Three Rivers Field

No love for The Pit?

All right, I probably wouldn't vote for it either... but I kind of like it.

Three Rivers Field. Three Rivers is a good name, and it's now a field, not a stadium because the football is gone. Perfect.

Voting is now closed. In the closest vote yet, Allegheny Park has edged two-thirds of the name of the old concrete palace, Three Rivers Field.

The next team will be on the clock shortly.
