The unofficial start to the 2011 baseball season kicks off this weekend, as fans, players, and staff members of the Pittsburgh Pirates converge on the David L. Lawrence Convention Center downtown this weekend. PirateFest 2011 starts on Saturday on 10 a.m. and the action does not stop until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
