Pittsburgh Pirates Spring Training
True baseball fans know that Spring Training is when the game is played at it's purest level. The grass seems greener, the peanuts and cotton candy taste better, and everyone's team has a chance to win the pennant.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are a part of the Grapefruit League (also home to teams including the Philadelphia Phillies, the Baltimore Orioles, the Boston Red Sox, the Houston Astros, the Atlanta Braves, the New York Mets, and more). Their training facility is McKechnie Field in Bradenton, Florida.
