The Red Sox do their Spring Training at JetBlue Park, a brand new facility they just opened this year in Fort Myers. I loved the park because it wasn't as big as places like Fenway and Yakee Stadium. You can feel much more a part of the game in the smaller facility. We had seats in the 10 row behind first base, so we had a great view of everything.
It was fun to cheer with the crowd, sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Sweet Caroline" during the 7th Inning Stretch. That's something you don't see when you're watching from your living room at home. But guess what? At the park you don't see the close ups and the replays; you don't get to sit in your recliner and munch cheap snacks! (Bottled water was selling for $3.25 a bottle; I shudder to think how much they'd want for a hot dog or a beer!)
I thought I'd share a few of the photos I took while there!
It was only the team's third game in the park. We got to see them beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4!
