Red Sox Spring Training
It’s the most wonderful time of the year….Well, at least for baseball fans that is. It’s Red Sox spring training! Just last week, the day after the awesome Tom Brady led his team to victory in the Super Bowl (I had to add that) Red Sox nation packed up their team, all the equipment and headed down to JetBlue Park in Fort Myers Florida. The team has been heading down to Fort Myers for Red Sox spring training since 1993.

Jet Blue Park has the exact same dimensions as Fenway Park in Boston. One of the most recognizable features is the replica of the Green Monster in the left field. The only difference is that the Green Monster in Fort Myers has seating in the wall. Jet Blue Park has seating for 10,823 people. One of the features of the ballpark is the wavy roof that sits over the seats in the stadium, providing shade for the fans in attendance. The wavy design of the roof resembles the Cypress Trees in the surrounding area of the ballpark. In addition, the blocks that make up the ballpark are embedded with sea shells from Sanibel Island, one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. During Red Sox spring training the fans can get a sneak peak at the players for the upcoming season. If you are headed to Fort Myers in March chances are you are a snow bird or a Red Sox Fan.
