Baseball has been a Bradenton tradition since 1923 at the site now called LECOM Park. Many major and minor league teams have called Bradenton home. Since 1969 the Pittsburgh Pirates have used LECOM Park for spring training and starting in 2010 the Bradenton Marauders began their minor league games. Bradenton Baseball is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Pirates and Bradenton Marauders.
