Pirates Charities partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund and the Roberto Clemente Foundation to reenergize a community facility that was previously unusable for more than five years.

The complex has been transformed from a dilapidated indoor swimming pool into a state-of-the-art, year-round youth baseball and softball training facility.
