This stadium had been totally renovated large walk ways, comfy seats (shaded in some areas, even rain protected in others), they've added a "boardwalk promenade" in the outfield with bar tables, umbrellas with a "beachy" feel, the place is spacious, maintenance is good (until the...More

I have gone to this field for years. I love the feel of the field. It is a little older than others but that is what I like about it. You will have a great time.

I have finally gone to a game at the park. We were there for Faith and Family Night! Beautiful facilities. Spotless, good food, very helpful staff and a great way to enjoy a balmy night! Will return often!

McKechnie Field is now known as LECOM Park. It is the home of the Bradenton Marauders of the Florida State League. The stadium is beautiful and affordable. The concessions are normal ball park stuff. The ushers were all very friendly and the baseball was excellent.

Great old ballpark with a feeling of what it was like in 20s. I was delighted that the updates made did not take away the charm of the park. The only drawback was my team, Braves, lost😩

We have been Pirate season ticket holders for thirty years, and this marked our 5th visit to Bradenton. We love the ballpark, but find their pricing exhorbitant.. This is, after all,spring training,not a major league ballpark. Paying $4.50 for a bottle of water is outrageous!...More

We have been here many times over the years for spring training. The changes that were made to the seats, stadium, and concession stands over the years have been fantastic. The food is typical ballpark food.

This is home of the Pirates Spring Training, get there early and nab a seat on the left field fence, first come basis, but be careful during batting practice as balls are hit there. Great views from anywhere in the park

Comfortable seating with some good seats in the shade. The food is adequate- nothing really stood out. Season ticket holders can enter the stadium early to watch batting practice. If you arrive early and can park on a nearby street which allows you to avoid...More

Not sure I understand the question, but the visitors are on the third base side of the field and I saw several buses parked adjacent to the dugouts. So I thought they just drive right back out onto the street.
