A couple Spring Training notes:
-P- The Pirates have announced that they've added an extra Spring Training game. They will play their previously scheduled game against the Twins on the road on March 21 and will add a game that day against the Braves in Bradenton. That game will be at 1:05. (You can check out the rest of the Spring Training schedule here.)
-P- In addition, the Pirates have announced a variety of promo events during the Spring Training schedule. Those include a pep rally on February 26 at 6:30pm in downtown Bradenton, a Pirate Fest event inside McKechnie Field at 11:00am on March 4 (during which fans can get player autographs), a couple of Baseball America magazine giveaways on March 7 and March 28, and a toothbrush giveaway (yes, really) on March 26.
