Move over Cutch, Potato Pete is back at PNC Park!


Andrew McCutchen isn’t the only fan-favorite returning to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2023.

PNC Park announced Tuesday on Twitter Potato Pete is returning to the Great Pittsburgh Pierogy Race.

The promotion at the end of fifth inning at Pirates games, has several people wearing Pierogy costumes running a 280-yard race.

Potato Pete was an original Pierogy.

He'll join Sauerkraut Saul, Cheese Chester, Jalapeno Hannah, Oliver Onion and Bacon Burt in the lineup.
