On Friday the Red Sox took on their cross-town rivals, the Minnesota Twins, at JetBlue Park in the opening game of the Grapefruit League schedule.  We got to the park at 11:00, but instead of going right in, we went around back to [...]

Happy New Year

Thursday, February 27, 2014 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Thursday brought the first baseball games of the new season, when the Red Sox took on Northeastern University and Boston College in a doubleheader.  We know from past years that by the time the gates open two hours before the game, the Red Sox have already finished [...]

Turn the Page

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
Tuesday was the sixth day of full-squad workouts, and the schedule we were given when we entered the complex showed that it would be a slightly different format from the other days.  It looked like the pitchers were being given a day off from throwing, [...]

Happy Campers

Monday, February 24, 2014 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout

Sometimes It All Works Out

Thursday, February 28, 2013 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workouts
On Thursday, the Red Sox had a game against the Pirates in Bradenton, up beyond Sarasota.  Since we had already traveled to Sarasota for a night game the day before, we chose to not make this trip and to drop by JetBlue Park instead.  Even [...]

Trip to Sarasota

Orioles 5, Red Sox 3
Wednesday brought the first night game of the spring, and a road trip to Sarasota.  We took advantage of the sunny day by driving up early and spending the afternoon at the beach on Siesta Key, a long beach with powdery white sand [...]
