Blue Jays vs. Pirates

The all-time spring attendance record is sure to shatter today as the Pittsburgh Pirates host the Toronto Blue Jays for a 1:05 p.m. Grapefruit League tilt at McKechnie Field. There have been more than 93,000 fans that have flocked to the 93-year park to watch spring training baseball this season.
The Pirates need to draw just 334 fans to tie the previous mark and 335 to break it.
With the largest crowd ever for a home spring game at McKechnie set earlier this month against the Detroit Tigers (9,018 fans), the Pirates have tallied six sellouts in 13 home games. The Bucs are also averaging 7,161 fans per home contest thus far.
Today's game marks the final spring meeting between the two clubs. Pittsburgh leads the spring series 2-1.
