The Pirates will then host the Miami Marlins at 1:05 p.m. in the Home Opener at LECOM Park on Sunday, February 24. It will mark the first time since March 17, 1993, that the Marlins will be playing in Bradenton.

A total of 15 home games will be played at LECOM Park, including a March 15 game vs. Tampa Bay at 6:05 p.m. and a St. Patrick’s Day match up against the Boston Red Sox at 1:05. Pittsburgh will close out its home portion of the 2019 spring schedule with a 1:05 p.m. game against the Phillies on March 23.

On February 13, 2018 Manatee County honored the milestone 50th anniversary of Pirates Spring Training in Manatee County. A proclamation was issued at the Board of County Commissioners Meeting recognizing the partnership between the Pirates and the local communities.

The Pittsburgh Pirates spring workouts take place at Pirate City and start around 9 a.m. and are free and open to the public.

MLB tickets to see the Pittsburgh Pirates play their spring training games at McKechnie Field 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!!
