Pirates take OF Swaggerty with No. 10 pick
The Pirates drafted outfielder Travis Swaggerty with the 10th overall selection during last night's 2018 First-Year Player Draft. The 20-year-old Swaggerty hit .296 (63-for-213) with 10 doubles, 13 home runs, 38 RBI and .526 slugging percentage in 57 games as a junior this season for the University of South Alabama.

"Travis Swaggerty is one of the best hitters in the draft and we are pleased to add such a multidimensional player to our organization," said Pirates Executive Vice President and General Manager Neal Huntington. "Travis is a gritty, driven, well-rounded athlete who can impact a game with his bat, his speed and his glove."
Meadows off to super start of MLB career
Top prospect Austin Meadows made his debut on May 18 and quickly made an impact on the Pirates roster. Meadows earned National League Rookie of the month honors for the month of May, with a .409 average and four home runs in just 13 games in May. Drafted 9th overall in 2013, Meadows has been a big part of the farm system and looks to be a big part of the Pirates future!

Experiences (for our Young Bucco Fans)
There are several Season Ticket Holder experiences remaining for the year, but don't wait too long as several have limited spots remaining. What better way to make the game of baseball even more memorable to your young Bucco than the Mascot breakfast on June 24 (featuring the Pirate Parrot) or giving them the chance to ask questions to their heroes on the field? Coming July 27, kids will have the chance to attend a question and answer session before the game in the PNC Park press conference room. Don't miss out on the chance to provide an experience to a child that will never forget it! Season Ticket Holder experiences are now available to choose on your MLB Ballpark app. Please let me know if you need any assistance with this so I can help you maximize your experience as a Season Ticket Holder!
