the field needs help, but it is still the only game in town. The pirates have been an archive for Bradenton for a long time, and do still play a good game.

Great ballpark in downtown Bradenton area. Home of the Pittsburg Pirates! Seating is excellent almost all throughout the park. Prices for professional MLB Spring Training games are among the most reasonable in the area. Recent upgrades and additions to the center field standing area make this an attractive place for the whole family.

This is one of the nicer spring training parks I have been to! The view from all the seats was great but the outfield open area was the best view and less crowded than the rest of the park.

The park still maintains the nostalgic aura of an older park but with all the amenities you need. The boardwalk around the outfield provides great viewing and the tiki bar captures the ambience of the Friendly City of Bradenton. Sunshine or shade, serious... More

McKechnie Field has undergone several renovations through the years. The current incarnation places it in the top of the minor league fields I have visited across the country.

The Pittsburgh Pirates play their home games here in the Grapefruit League. Excellent tickets are about 30 bucks and there are about 15 home games. Sight lines for the excellent tickets. But if you want to sit roughly 450 feet from home plate you can sis in centerfield, where there is a huge bar that always seems full. I had... More

Great game clean facilities! I Njoy the atmosphere and the feel of this field it sees some great players. The downtown area of Bradenton is not far away and will make a comeback before to long. A parking garage will be necessary in the future.
