The new Class A franchise in Bradenton, Fla., will be named the Marauders.  The team will begin play April 8, 2010, at McKechnie Field. Pirates president Frank Coonelly announced the team name this afternoon at a luncheon in Bradenton.

Dan Wolfert was named the Marauders’ general manager. Wolfert, 31, spent the past five years as GM of the Class A Sarasota Reds.

    What was wrong with the Bradenton PIRATES?

    Geeze, what a no brainer, but they come up with a name that means nothing to Pirates fans?

  2. Larry Schnepp says:

    Marauders is a synonym for “Pirates,” and the GCL Pirates are essentially the “Bradenton Pirates.”
