Catch a Pirates Game at LECOM Park!
Because our roots started in Pittsburgh… it makes it easy for us to root for the black and gold underneath the palm trees at LECOM Park!
LECOM and the Pittsburgh Pirates are the closest team to Anna Maria Island just a short 20-25 minute drive!
Bradenton’s LECOM Park, built in 1922, is the oldest spring training stadiums, still hosting a team, in Florida’s Grapefruit League and has been home to spring training baseball since 1923.
The ballpark’s current tenant, the Pittsburgh Pirates, have called LECOM Park home since 1969.
