Spring is on its way and that means it’s almost baseball season! Each Spring, as the snows melt and the flowers bloom the Sarasota/Bradenton area sees the return of a long standing tradition, Major League Baseball Spring training. Whether you are a long time fan or just discovering the game, Spring training is a exciting activity to enjoy while you stay on Anna Maria Island.
Anna Maria Island is conveniently located to both the Bradenton and Sarasota Spring Training facilities. Visitors staying in one of our vacation rentals this spring will have the opportunity to catch two Major League teams in action, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Baltimore Orioles.

The Pittsburg Pirates began training this February at the historic Mckechnie Field, located in Brandenton, FL
The Baltimore Orioles open training this March at the Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, FL.
