Sights and Sounds From Pirates Spring Training



Pittsburgh Pirates, Spring Training, Pirate City

BRADENTON Fla. — My week at Pirate City covering the 2024 Pittsburgh Pirates spring training has come to an end.

It was my first time at spring training and as I expected, it turned out to be a terrific experience. Seeing baseball activity take place under the warm sunshine was a sight for sore eyes after what felt like a year-long winter in Pittsburgh.

Below, you’ll find some of my favorite clips and pictures from the first week of Pirates’ spring training.

Nothing happening yet at LECOM Park, but my friend and colleague John Perrotto took me there to kick off our trip. The Pirates will play their first game of the spring here on Sunday against the Orioles.

Aroldis Chapman in his first bullpen in a Pittsburgh Pirates’ uniform. Yes, he is as large as he looks and still throws hard.

2023 first-overall pick Paul Skenes generated plenty of buzz in his first big-league camp. Here’s a snippet of his first bullpen.

Bryan Reynolds has annually been the steadiest player in the Pirates’ lineup. Here he is taking some cuts.

Pitching prospect Jackson Wolf gets funky as he warms up during his bullpen.

Reigning All-Star Mitch Keller throws a live bullpen against Oneil Cruz. The first of many for Cruz, who is getting his legs back under him after missing the majority of last season. Keller wins the battle.

Aroldis Chapman made some new friends after his workout on Monday.

Thank you all for following along while John and I were down here. We have plenty more coming, so be sure to subscribe to PBN+ so you don’t miss a thing!
