Forbes Field Relics

A Pittsburgh area man who salvaged portions of Forbes Field during demolition in 1972 has consigned them to auction later this year. Now he’s not sure he wants to see them leave the city.

For 34 years, the plaques lay in eight pieces in a shed and garage at Dombrowski’s house in Plum. Then, the All-Star FanFest brought Hunt Auctions to town, and he thought he might auction them off.

The pieces were shipped Friday to company headquarters in Exton, Pa., for auction this fall in Louisville, Ky.
