Pirates to honor Manatee High football team

The Pittsburgh Pirates on March 10 will honor coach Joe Kinnan and the 2009 Manatee High School football team during a spring training game at McKechnie Field.

Coach Kinnan – a four-time Manatee High state championship winning coach – will be presented with an official Pirates jersey, and fans will enjoy one final opportunity to see the team.
