McKechnie Field – Bradenton Florida Reviews
McKechnie Field shares a name with Pittsburgh native, Hall of Fame manager Bill McKechnie. Built in 1923, McKechine field has stood the test of time. Because it has been renovated several times over the years, McKechnie has become one of baseball’s finest facilities.
McKechnie Field has gone through a number of renovations from 1991-93. Some of these renovations include; wide access ramps, concession stands, kiosks and improved sight lines. All of this was done while maintaining a ballpark’s classic ambiance. The palm-tree lined park was integrated into the already 1920s Spanish-mission style by using masonry, stucco and structural steel materials. McKechnie Field was even pulled back from the street, allowing for the creation of a public plaza and walkway around the park. Because of this you can move closer to the field. Visitors can enjoy expanded seating capacity. Once only approximately 4,200 seats McKechnie field now seats 6,500.
This ballpark has plenty of fun for the whole family. You’ll enjoy new group areas with enhanced sight lines to the field. Also new concessions locations and an enlarged Fan Plaza. In addition The Boardwalk Barbecue Area gives groups of 25 or more the chance to enjoy an all-you-can eat pregame picnic in full view of the field.
