Welcome to JetBlue Park

Saturday, March 3, 2012 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers

The Final Workout

Spring Training Workouts
Friday marked the final workout session for the Red Sox, before they start up their exhibition game schedule on Saturday.  After doing their usual stretching on the agility field, they broke up into groups and dispersed to the various practice fields.  I followed David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, and [...]

A Sneak Peek at JetBlue Park

Tuesday, January 3, 2012 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
I happened to have one day to spend in Ft. Myers this week, so I made sure to go over to the site of JetBlue Park, the new spring training home of the Red Sox.  It’s still 47 days until pitchers and catchers report, and we weren’t [...]
