Home of the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training and Bradenton Marauders summer Florida State League April to September. It is authentically old, without the faux sheen of retro features so prevalent in new spring-training complexes these days. Built in 1923 for the St. Louis Cardinals and still known by many oldtimers as the former spring home of the Milwaukee Braves and Atlanta Braves, McKechnie Field is basically the same ballpark where Roberto Clemente gracefully patrolled the outfield, where Willie Stargell engaged the fans, and where Henry Aaron awed onlookers with his sheer power and determination. McKechnie Field is a throwback to how spring training used to be: an intimate affair played in a neighborhood ballpark.
