It's a new era for the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, Florida. The Pirate City complex is a state-of-the-art training facility to rival any other. We'd love for your group or team to help usher in this new era by hosting your event at our facilities.

Even before the recent historic renovations, Pirate City played host to events and camps of all sorts, including:

  • Baseball groups who eat, sleep and live at the complex. This includes college programs; high school and college showcases & tournaments; and instructional sessions.
  • Foreign teams' Spring Training.
  • Corporate Team Building Events including such elements as a softball game and barbecue at Pirate City and now the opportunity for a softball game under the lights at LECOM Park.
  • Corporate Meetings & Seminars.
  • Holiday Parties & Banquets.
  • Wedding Receptions.
  • Birthday Parties.
  • Concerts and more...

And now with our new facilities available, we anticipate hosting scores more. From one-day conferences... to overnight corporate retreats... to week-long baseball programs... Pirate City and LECOM Park have the event space to accommodate your group.
