Is Pittsburg's baseball stadium near the Amtrak train? Can you take mass transit to the game or do you need to drive?

Pittsburgh Amtrak Station to PNC Park - Google Maps

It is a .8 mile walk across a historic nice bridge. If you are not handicapped or extremely obese then you should be able to handle that. Otherwise there are many busses that go down Penn and across the bridge.

By the 2012 season, the city's subway extension to that side of the river will be complete. North Shore Connector

There will be a station near PNC Park, so that will be another option to get over there. Personally, I would rather walk across.

except that without the spur, there's no stop at the station, not that you can't walk to the steel plaza. weather permitting, it's a nice walk

Yeah, Pittsburgh is very walkable. I visited it years ago (when PNC first opened) and was very impressed with the city. I do intend on moving there by years end. I was originally going to move there over the summer and some things feel through, but it has not detered me.

I took the greyhound there and was able to walk to PNC, I believe the Amtrack station is not far from where I was.

PNC Park is beautiful, a great stadium for a team with great tradition...even though the last decade or so has been rough for them.
