Hillman library was built before Forbes Field was demolished. I recall two locations in the library where a single desk was placed next to a window which had a view of the ballpark. One window allowed me to see the left side of the infield and one window the left outfielder. I always chose the infield desk view on game days. Even though there was not much action to follow because the view from each desk was small, I didn't get much studying completed on game days and nights as I would
keep peering out the window at any action I could see.
