LECOM PARK BASEBALL FACILITIES AND SERVICE
LECOM Park has benefited from numerous renovations since the turn of the century. The historic ballpark maintains the classic charm of a venue with more than nine decades of baseball history. The Spanish Mission-style façade visible from several blocks away is an iconic architectural feature recognized throughout professional baseball.
The baseball facilities at LECOM Park include two full grass fields professionally maintained year-round. Four bullpen mounds, a standalone multi-tunnel batting cage structure, home and visiting locker rooms, and an umpires' changing area provides ample space for a wide array of baseball activities. Fixed seating can accommodate more than 7,500 fans. Standing room brings the park's capacity to 9,000 people.
LECOM Park, which is also home to the Bradenton Marauders of the Florida State League, received the top honor of the 2018 Best of the Ballparks fan vote for High-A facilities, conducted by Ballpark Digest. The same publication has previously recognized The Friendly City's ballfield as "Best of the Ballparks" in the Grapefruit League. LECOM Park has held the top spot among Florida Spring Training destinations since 2016.
The press facilities, located in the elevated level behind home plate, feature wireless internet access and three radio/TV broadcast locations. A newly installed high-definition video board was put in place in 2017,
There are two suites available for use during baseball events or for private rentals. Both the Pirates Box and the City of Bradenton Box are located behind home plate and each accommodates up to 20 guests. On the first base/right field side of LECOM Park itself is a parking lot for 100 cars. Use of adjacent parking lots for up to 500 vehicles is negotiable.
In addition to baseball, LECOM Park has been used for concerts, festivals and corporate celebrations.
