As opening day of Spring Training and Opening Day upon us, Blalock Walters wishes everyone an exciting baseball season as is tradition in our communities. We are fortunate to enjoy Major League Baseball in Sarasota (Orioles) and in Bradenton (Pirates) with many others nearby. Even if you are not a baseball enthusiast, I think we all can agree the MLB provides a positive impact in our counties and a family atmosphere for enjoying America’s favorite pastime.
There is some baseball related information about Blalock Walters that you may find interesting. Not only are we the attorneys at law for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Marauders, but our Estate Planning Practice Group leader, Anthony D. Bartirome, Esq., represents many retired players and is the proud son of former Pirates player, Anthony Joseph “Tony” Bartirome, from the 1952 season. We were able to find this great photo of Anthony’s dad, and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Additionally, years ago Bob Blalock was selected by the City, County and Chambers as the Chairman of a large committee formed to retain the Pirates’ home base at McKechnie Field. This involved expansion and renovation, not to be confused with the current renovation! We have come a long way. Bradenton has been the home of the Pirates since 1969.
Play Ball and Go Pirates!
