The YMF hosted their annual Pirates Tailgate on October 2, 2015. This year’s later date was a great way to close out the season in what was an important series for the Pirates to clinch home-field advantage for the playoff wild card game. Additionally, it helped kickoff the YMF’s social events for the fall (you can find what other events are coming up on the Pittsburgh Section’s Calendar). The Pirates won the game in a thrilling extra innings affair, winning 6-4 in the 12th inning.
There were approximately 30 attendees for the tailgate who braved the cold weather to come out to socialize with friends and colleagues. Additionally, some students from the local universities attended, which is great to see as one of the Pittsburgh YMF’s main long-term goals is to increase student interaction and make students aware of all the benefits of being a Pittsburgh ASCE member.
