  • 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 reas...  more »
  • Not as awesome as it was in the old days, but still fun! This is always part of our Feb "Spring Training" trip to Bradenton!

  • We always have fun at the games. We went on the 4th of July and they had a great firework show after the game. Watch the schedule as many of the games are themed. You can't beat the price.
  • Clean, fun atmosphere. Seats were plentiful and the game was enjoyable from any part of the park. Bathrooms and refreshments were easy to locate.
  • Not a depressed neighborhood, a business neighborhood, all who offer cheap parking. We LOVED the stadium...the flow is right, plenty of choices for food and drink, and a great setting. We aren't Pirates fans, but Sox fans and were treated as if we were part of the home team. Players are very accessible to the public and signed a lot of kids' baseballs. go visit! We will go again...
  • Been watching Pirates Spring Training games here since 2004. 1st night game last Saturday. Neat experience! All kinds of things added on like the boardwalk, extra refreshment stands. Enjoy watching games there. Get to see Pirates every year (from Wexford PA).
  • As a Florida resident, this is my favorite spring training park.. The layout is definitely not cookie cutter and adds to the charm. For those complaining about parking and the lack of a place to go before or after the game, the recently opened Motor City Brewery located a few blocks away has cheap parking and is an excellent before game and after game for a great selection of libations and excellent eats from several food truck staged around a large courtyard with spacious decking shaded by large oaks.
