McKechnie Field

Throughout the years, the city of Bradenton in west central Florida has hosted numerous baseball games in "Florida's Fenway Park." McKechnie Field, originally named City Park, opened in 1923 east of the current baseball field. It was the home field for the Bradenton Growers of the Florida State League and the training location for the St. Louis Cardinals.

By 1993, major renovations were done to the ballpark, including moving it to its current location, south of Bradenton. In 1927, the ballpark was named Ninth Street Park, followed by another name change in 1948, to become Braves Field.

By 1962, it was named after former Bradenton resident Bill McKechnie, a baseball player, manager and coach. McKechnie Field has hosted spring training games for the National League's Philadelphia Phillies,  American League's Boston Red Sox, National League's Boston Bees (now the Atlanta Braves), American League's Kansas City Athletics and finally, National League's Pittsburgh Pirates.
