Baseball Happened Today

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Game 1: Red Sox 2, Northeastern University 1, 8 innings
On Tuesday, it was finally time for “real” baseball!  OK, so it was a doubleheader against two college teams that doesn’t even count in the exhibition standings which themselves don’t officially count, but it was baseball nonetheless.  We [...]

Closing Time

Monday, March 2, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
Monday was the last day of workouts before games kick off Tuesday against Boston College and Northeastern.  In the meantime, it was another fun day of fielding drills, live B.P., and batting practice.  We got to see Justin Masterson and Koji Uehara pitch, cutoff and [...]

Ready, Set, March

Sunday, March 1, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers

A Spring In My Step

Friday, February 27, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
On Friday we arrived early before the players took the field.  We knew it was going to be a shortened practice when we heard the players were leaving early to go to their yearly charity golf tournament.  That meant no live B.P., but we got [...]

Reporting to the Fort

Thursday, February 26, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
I flew into Ft. Myers last night, happy to escape the brutal Boston winter.  While I was originally worried about snow delaying my departure, this morning it seemed that rain would spoil my chance to see the players.  In past years we’ve had days where [...]

A Championship Welcome

Friday, February 28, 2014 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Twins 8, Red Sox 2
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 [...]

Spring Training Workout
Wednesday was the last day for workouts before Spring Training exhibition games begin.  We again arrived as the complex was opening and the players were heading out to the field.  According to the schedule, batting practice for the major league players would take place inside [...]

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, [...]
