MLB tickets to see the Pittsburgh Pirates play their spring training games at McKechnie Field, now LECOM Park, have been available for decades.

Before the Pirates made Bradenton their spring training Mecca in 1969, they called many other locations their spring home; Havana, Cuba, and Hollywood, California being among them.

Make your plans to come out and see this year's crop of new prospects along with returning Pittsburgh Pirates as well as veterans.

There's nothing like watching spring training exhibition games while being able to work on your tan. Ah, Florida Spring Training!!
