Pirates Play Ball is the official home to all of the ballclub's youth baseball and softball efforts in the community.
By supporting MLB's Play Ball initiative, which is built around inspiring everyone to play ball - "however you play ball" - the Pittsburgh Pirates are committed to growing the game in our region and creating opportunities for our youth to enjoy the game.
We want your team to be connected with Pirates Play Ball, and we hope that your community will want to be involved.
PLAY BALL - SUNDAY, MAY 20
The Pirates invite kids of all ages to come down to take part in PLAY BALL on Sunday, May 20.
The Pirates annual PLAY BALL event will take place on-field at PNC Park for youth ages 5-14, offering instruction and entertainment from Pirates coaches, players, alumni, mascots, front office staff and more. Youth in attendance will participate in fun and engaging baseball activities, and will receive two tickets to the Pirates vs. Padres 1:35 p.m. game later that day. Also, following the on-field event, Pirates infielder Josh Harrison will be joined by former Pirate John Wehner to discuss hitting with the group, and will offer tips and drills that participants can work on at home.
ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
