Here is PNC Park in Pittsburgh

enter image description here

I guess the wall/fence pointed out by red arrow is 21 feet high.

What about the wall pointed out by blue arrow? I'm not even sure whether there is a wall there pointed out by yellow arrow?

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here - are you asking for the height of the wall pointed to by the blue arrow, and the height/presence of a wall pointed to by the yellow arrow? (It would probably also help if you could explain why this is important) – Philip Kendall Sep 15 at 15:44

There is not a significant wall there, as is generally the case in (purpose-built) MLB parks. Instead, you have seating; there is railing to demarcate where fans can be as opposed to the playing field, but not a wall. It is traditional in baseball parks to allow fans to sit at field level and see the game; injuries to fans from batted balls (or thrown bats) has led to some netting being in place at most parks, usually at least extending to the dugouts now, but nothing further to interfere from seeing the field.

From this image enter image description here (see link to MLBCathedrals twitter for full res), you can see the railing from behind. The blueish colored railing is still railing - just wtih some padding on it; and from other pictures including that on Wikipedia you can clearly see people with their arms resting on it, so it's around 4 feet high there.

The dugout area (yellow arrow) will typically be around the same height (around a person's height), so that it's not disturbing the view of the seats in row 5 or 6 (whatever row it goes back to).
