The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today that, due to Allegheny County's new smoking ordinance that bans smoking in most public places, PNC Park will now be a completely smoke-free facility.

All designated smoking areas, including those located on the concourse, Suite and Pittsburgh Baseball Club levels, have been eliminated. Fans will be required to refrain from smoking in all areas of the ballpark.

"Even though the general seating area has been smoke-free since the ballpark opened, we always tried to responsibly accommodate those fans who choose to smoke with designated smoking areas," said Patty Paytas, Pirates VP of Communications. "However, like many other businesses in the county, we had to make the appropriate adjustments and PNC Park will now be a completely smoke-free facility."

The customer service staff at PNC Park will enforce the rule by requiring fans to extinguish their cigarettes or cigars and by giving those fans a small pocket card explaining the new county-wide ordinance. Fans will not be permitted to exit and then re-enter the ballpark as it is not allowed under Major League Baseball policy.
