The Official Site of the Pittsburgh Pirates

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.


Join us at PNC Park for Youth Baseball & Softball Day on Sunday, June 24, 2018.

The first 1,000 players and coaches to register as a team will participate in a special pre-game ceremony on the field. Participants can also enjoy a pre-game chat and Q&A session with Pirates personnel. Players and coaches are encouraged to wear their team jerseys to the game! Tickets purchased together will be seated together. Kids ages 14 and younger can run the bases following the game.
