PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pirates have a new addition to PNC Park.
The team unveiled a Black Lives Matter banner inside the park. The banner is hanging from PNC Park’s left-field rotunda, and the team’s logo is included on the banner.
The Pirates tweeted a picture of the banner of Friday, saying, “Use your platform. Make a difference. #BlackLivesMatter.”
Use your platform.
