For the third consecutive season, the Pittsburgh Pirates will host University Nights at PNC Park for several local colleges and universities, according to Lock Haven’s The Express.

The University Nights will take place on Wednesday night games throughout the season.  Students, alumni and fans of a specific university receive an official Pirates university cap in that university’s colors.  

Those who participate get a ticket for either infield grandstand or corner box seats.  The infield grandstand seats cost $20, and the corner box seats cost $25.  You can purchase tickets on the Pirates website.  Tickets and caps are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
