MANATEE--Pirates Charities, the philanthropic arm of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Bradenton Boosters announced that they have partnered with the Miracle League of Manasota to help build a Miracle League Field for Manatee and Sarasota Counties. As part of the ongoing partnership, Pirates Charities has committed $50,000 towards the construction of the baseball field designed specifically for children with special needs.
In addition, the Pirates will continue to play a key role in assisting Bob Mitchell, President of the Miracle League of Manasota, and other partners in the planning and construction of the project. Once constructed, Pirates players, coaches and alumni will actively participate in the games that the Miracle League program offers.
The new field, which will be located at Longwood Park just off University Pkwy., will be made of a flat rubberized surface to create a safe playing environment for every child. It will also feature ADA dugouts, an electronic scoreboard, a concession stand, a pavilion and restrooms. This is the third Miracle League Field Project Pirates Charities has partnered to build and the first in its Southern home of Bradenton.
