    Carpenters re-create entrance to Forbes Field - By Kevin Kirkland, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    It's not a house, but it was home to Pirates, Grays, Steelers and Panthers.

    So when the Forbes Field working group was looking for someone to build a replica of the legendary field's entrance, the carpenters union was the first stop.

    At the union's apprentice training center on Neville Island, Rick Okraszewski and the other instructors usually work with apprentices on framing, trim and cabinet installation. The apprentices were much more excited about building Forbes Field.

    Plum man wants to share history - By Kevin Kirkland, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Martin is the co-author of a book about the ballpark and designer of a replica of the arches that stands near the old outfield wall on Bouquet Street in Oakland. He gave the replica's builders, the carpenters union, drawings he had made of the plaques based on old photographs. But he had never seen one intact. Now he has seen two, or at least photographs of them.
