Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

After being away for too many decades from the Pittsburgh region and my hometown of Glassport, I was able to get back and catch three Pirates games at PNC Park.

I experienced absolutely wonderful games, the ballpark and its view of the great downtown of Pittsburgh. The atmosphere in and around the park is beyond description for me, other than to say to those fortunate to live in the Pittsburgh area that I envy yinz guys.

I ended up signing up at the ballpark for a subscription to the digital edition of the Trib. It is a first-class publication and the digital format/ease of reading is the best.

I may now never read any papers from my blasé, boring relocated home in Ohio — since they don't very well cover the Pirates, the Steelers and the greatest hometown in America.
