Winter home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates' Bradenton Marauders farm team plays here in the summers. The ballpark is crammed into the surrounding neighborhood. A sidewalk is all that separates one of the ballpark's outside walls from a busy street. Inside, the facility is charming. There is a little plaza area with several shops and food stands. The stands... More

We went on a Wednesday evening to watch the Marauders play Charlotte. Our seats were fantastic (a bit to the right of home plate). The field has an "old school" feel to it, both in design and size. Both ticket and food & beverage prices are VERY reasonable. The only negative was the loud volume of the PA system. This... More

Loved the homey feel of the ballpark. Maybe I'm a neo, but the players are closeby and it was a thrill to see them again when they played the Red Sox

Lots of giveaways,low priced happy hour beer. The service at the counters was fast and friendly. Sad that it was as empty as it was on a Friday night

It is not a vacation unless I can see a baseball game in Bradenton. The Maruaders were in town this past week and went to the park on Wednesday night despite the rain. Glad I did as I enjoyed the 11-2 victory. Pulling up to the park I found $2 Clive in parking right at the park which was staffed... More

Cheap seats. Low cost or free parking. Great weather, T shirt give-aways and happy people. You're up close to all the action and players and if you sit near the dugouts with a kid with a baseball glove you will come home with a baseball.

A historic ballpark where the games is close up and personal. Spring training home of the Pittsburg Pirates and summer home of the Bradenton Marauders. They are teams active in the community in addition to providing great baseball for your entertainment.

Visited twice while on vacation in area. Friday July 3rd was a great party atmosphere for the holiday weekend! The first 1500 into the park got a t-shirt - usually first 750 on a Friday! Happy hour til 6.30 on nice yeungling beer! Food was typical ball park food but chicken tenders were lovely! Player's shirts were being auctioned off... More

to experience baseball as it is supposed to be played. Spring Training baseball in Florida is such a FUN experience. The parks are smaller so you are closer to the action. The players are much more friendly, and are really open to spending moments with the fans that have come out to see them, especially the kids. More often than... More

For less than the price of a movie you can enjoy the great outdoors and see a baseball game. Food cost less than at the movies as well. Every seat is great and you can walk around to see the game from different viewpoints. The staff is friendly and local. Sunday games are family friendly with tickets and hotdogs for... More
