THE PARTNERSHIP – IT’S A HOMERUN!
Pittsburgh Pirates – Bradenton Marauders – Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County
“I thought we were part of the Pirates. I thought I was a Pirate!”
“I watched many games when I was at the Boys Club in the 60’s and 70’s.”
“Interacting with the Pirates and being part of that era, I became a baseball player.”
“It was hard not to envision yourself, one day, hitting a home run in that field.”
In 2018, the Pittsburgh Pirates celebrated 50 years in Bradenton, Florida and Dawn Stanhope, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, spoke of the value of having the Pirates as a partner in the community. (Video courtesy of the Pittsburgh Pirates)
