If you haven’t been to the renovated North Shore, visited the memorials, and enjoyed the views and the statues at the new stadiums, you shouldn’t miss this walk. From the parking lot, go to the corner of General Robinson Street and Mazerowski Way and cross the street toward PNC Park. Immediately on the opposite corner find a large statue of Honus Wagner, considered by many to be Major League Baseball’s greatest all-around player. The former shortstop (until 1917) and then manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Wagner retired with more hits, runs, doubles, triples, games, and steals than any other National League player. He was also admired when he had his valued baseball card recalled because he objected to it being included with tobacco, not wanting to set a poor example for children. Continuing along the side of the baseball stadium, you’ll see vertical flags with the photos and names of some of baseball’s great players, including Roberto Clemente, Dave Parker, Mannie Sanguillen, and many more. This walk is wheelchair accessible and very scenic.
