We love going to watch baseball games! And we’re going to watch a lot of them during the second half of this season after we discovered the Pirates’ kids club also known as the Bucaroos Kids Club. If you have a child under 14, you get all this free stuff, including tickets and gear. There’s two levels of membership. The first is free, the second is $30. Which isn’t a lot considering most tickets at PNC Park would cost more than that, anyways. (Scroll to the bottom to see similar programs for other teams across the MLB!)
(I’ve updated this to reflect the 2015 offers. Prices have gone up and benefits have gone down since this originally went live in 2012, but it’s still an overall great deal.)
Silver Package (Free)
- One free ticket
- Four buy one get one ticket vouchers
- Every game you go to, your child scans their membership ID and can earn things a backpack, window clings, and a Bucaroos baseball cap.
