Viewfinder: Pirates Fantasy Camp
Our weekly photo gallery presents images of places and people around Bradenton.
Baseball fans from around the country got to release their inner ballplayer last week when Pirate City hosted its annual Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Camp.
Ninety campers spent the week in Bradenton -- an all-time high, according to camp director Joe Billetdeaux. They got to live in the dorms at Pirate City, hang out in the clubhouse and play games on the same practice fields that will host the major leaguers when they come down to Florida for spring training in just a few weeks.
Check out our photo gallery from last Friday, when the campers' teams began to wrap up their week of doubleheaders that culminated in a championship game.
