Pirates release 2012 spring sched

Pittsburgh Pirates logoThe Pittsburgh Pirates released a 2012 spring-training schedule that begins with an intrasquad game on March 2 and includes home games with the Red Sox, Yankees and Phillies.

You can view the schedule here.

The Pirates reconfigured the pricing options at McKechnie Stadium for 2012. New: an Outfield Box section where the prices are slightly lower than the Infield Box sections. Overall, many seats in the ballpark — especially the best ones in the grandstand — were increased by $2 a ticket. However, the season-ticket prices for these seats are the same as last season.

And the Pirates still have a two-tiered pricing system, with more expensive ducats offered for appealing dates and matchups.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, January 21 at 10:00 a.m. During an early ordering period (Jan. 18-20) you can pay a $5 surcharge to order tickets.
