On Thursday the workouts were all over and it was time for some actual games for the first time in 2018.  This was my first Opening Day of the year (which sounds a [...]

Final Workout

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
On Wednesday the string of hot Florida weather continued, and we returned to JetBlue Park for the final workout before the real fake games begin.  Today we got to see a pop-up drill and watched several of the pitchers throw live B.P.  We also hung [...]

Working Out In The Fort

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
It was another day of great Florida weather, and we went back to the Red Sox’ Spring Training complex to watch the workout. The highlight of the day for me was getting an autograph from Mike Lowell, who’s in camp to [...]

Reporting Day

Monday, February 19, 2018 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
According to the baseball calendar, it was the first full squad workout, but for me, it was finally time to report.  I flew in last night, excited about the forecast for a warm, sunny week.  The players were a little later than usual coming out [...]

Road Trip to Port Charlotte

Sunday, February 26, 2017 – Charlotte Sports Park, Port Charlotte
Rays 7, Red Sox 3
Today was the first road game for the Red Sox, a short drive north to Port Charlotte to take on the Rays.  It was also my last game before heading much further back north.  We know going in that for road games [...]

Home Whites

Saturday, February 25, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers

Saturday brought the third game of the spring calendar, and the first where the team was wearing their home white uniforms.  Again we arrived in the morning before the gates opened and went around back to see what was going on.  It was [...]

Grapefruit League Opener

Friday, February 24, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Mets 3, Red Sox 2
On Friday the Grapefruit League games got underway with a contest against the Mets.  We again arrived well before the gates opened, and walked around to the practice fields in the back of the complex.  On one field, most of the major league [...]

Welcome Back, Baseball

Thursday, February 23, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Red Sox 9, Huskies 6
Today it was finally time to watch some baseball!  The Red Sox kicked off the 2017 season with a 1:00 game against Northeastern University.  We arrived early, well before the gates opened, and walked around to the back fields of the complex to [...]

Cutting Room Floor

Wednesday, February 22, 2017
It was pouring all morning and we knew there was no way the players would take the field for the final workout.  It’s no big deal for them, because they have the weight room and batting cages indoors that they can use, but it was a bummer for me when we saw an [...]

Greeting the G.O.A.T.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Spring Training Workout
We had heard that the players would be attending a Players’ Association meeting in the morning so they would be taking the field later than usual.  We ended up timing it perfectly, so that we arrived just as the players were starting to take the [...]
