Pirates Announce New Starting Times for Night Games

November 30th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Evening home games will now start at 6:40 p.m., except for Saturday games before the All-Star break, which will begin at 4:05 p.m. After the All-Star break, Saturday games will start at 6:40 p.m. The new start times are in reaction to feedback from season-ticket holders, who expressed their appreciation for the earlier start times for games in April, May and September last season.

There will be 12 midweek day games starting at 12:35.
The Pirates open their home schedule with the Baltimore Orioles on April 5 at 4:12 p.m.  That start time coincides with the area code for most Pittsburgh phone numbers, 412.
