Welcome to Bradenton Buccos!

With one countdown over, another begins.

Pitchers and catchers have arrived in Bradenton, Florida, which mean just 13 days until the first Sprign Training game.

John Schelegel of mlb.com said it best.

The smell of the grass.

The pop of the glove.

The crack of the bat.

With those sensory delights, baseball begins anew, and awakens us all to a new year with baseball in Florida and Arizona. And, just like every year, isn’t it about time?

We have been waiting far too long. It is time!

I went to the stadium in Bradenton last year…it is a very nice older stadium. Wish I could be there right now!

Ahhhh,
The poetry of Spring Baseball.
Nothing better in this world in my opinion….nothing at all.
And with Bradenton getting a Florida State League team this season in low Class-A ball, it will give more chances to guys left behind in Pirate City to get game experience, oe just watch and maybe pick-up a few pointers along the way.
Love that the stadium is kind of hidden away like a treasure within the Bradenton City Limits.
I will actually pass the stadium tomorrow on my way to Port Charlotte down US 41
