Pirates Charities teams with Rays in Bradenton
The Pirates announced on Thursday that Pirates Charities has teamed up with the Rays Baseball Foundation to renovate two youth baseball fields in Bradenton, Fla., where the Pirates hold Spring Training. The two fields — one named “Rays Field” and the other named “Pirates Field” — will be used by Bradenton’s Jr. RBI Program.
Pirates closer Matt Capps contributed $50,000 to the renovation project, and Pirates Charities will donate another $40,000. The Rays will also give $90,000, with some of that coming from Rays pitcher James Shields.
