Bradenton’s - Pittsburg Pirates Spring Training

Unlike Stadiums up north, the stands in Florida are close to the infield and seats are within earshot of players chatting to their teammates. The back row literally feels more like the fourth or fifth row of any major league field. The weather is almost always PERFECT, the beer and hot dogs are cheaper and everything – parking, tailgating, finding your seat, standing in line for food – is just a LOT more relaxed and... "laid-back".

Bradenton -

Bradenton enjoys a rich tradition of baseball at McKechnie Field where the Pittsburgh Pirates conduct spring training and the Bradenton Marauders fill summers with minor league play.

More Spring Trainings -

15 teams train beneath the palms of Central and South Florida and many parks are literally within minutes of each other.

Unlike "season", the ballplayers are relaxed and have little concern over that slump or losing streak and most don’t even mind signing those autographs.

The Detroit Tigers who train in Lakeland – between Tampa and Orlando at Joker Marchant Stadium – have been in Lakeland since 1930. The Philadelphia Phillies have played in Clearwater since 1947 and Dunedin is right up the road hosting the Toronto’s Blue Jays since the team’s inception in 1977.

The Yankees have had a Florida presence since 1919 and you’re welcome to catch a game at Tampa’s Steinbrenner Stadium.

Fortunately, these ballparks are all within the Sarasota/Tampa Bay Area providing multiple game opportunities and... it’s best to buy TICKETS on-line as the weekend games sell-out early.
