Nothing goes better with baseball than a ballpark dog, so pack up your pooch and head down to Pup-Night on Tues., May 11, at PNC Park on the North Shore. Bats and tails will be swinging as the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the division-rival Cincinnati Reds at 7:05 p.m.

Each month throughout the season, the Pirates invite pet owners and their canines to the Southwest Flight Deck in left field, which is equipped with plenty of water troughs and treat stands—not to mention “comfort stations,” where there’s an ample supply of plastic bags for all other pup-related business.

The Pirates will raffle doggie gift baskets, give away pup prizes and donate a portion of the proceeds to the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society and Animal Friends.

Each $20 ticket is good for one human and one dog. Just be sure to bring proof of vaccination to the stadium. Dogs are required to wear a leash at all times and—of course—to ruff, ruff, ruff for the home team.

Pup-Night tickets are available by calling Kevin Roach at 412/325-4797 or e-mailing KevinP.Roach@pirates.com.
