The New Home of the Red Sox

Tuesday, February 22, 2011 – Ft. Myers

After a long, snowy winter, the time finally came for me to report to the Fort!  My first stop was the site of the new Spring Training complex the Red Sox are building for next year, which is located on Daniels Parkway not far from the airport.  The new complex will contain the stadium and practice fields together in one location instead of two miles apart like they are now.  Plans also call for the stadium to have a replica Green Monster in left field so that new players and prospects can practice fielding The Wall before they get to Fenway.  (Of course, its true intricacies won’t really be captured by a replica unless they also add a ladder, scoreboard, and garage door.)

For now, there’s not much to see at the site of the new complex.  Dirt piles were being moved around and large pipes were stacked off to the side.  Here’s an obligatory shot of the construction site:

What I found interesting was  the sign at the entrance to the site that had a drawing of what the stadium will look like when it’s finished:

It will be interesting to see how it looks when it opens next year.  But for now, I’m excited to be heading to the current practice fields for tomorrow’s workouts.  Stay tuned for the rest of the week for photos and updates from the Red Sox’ workouts and games.
