Red Sox to Debut New Spring Training Complex

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Spring training is just over a month away for Baseballfans.

Pitchers and catchers from 15 Major League teams are scheduled to report to 14 Florida sites by mid-February as they gear up for 236 spring training games in the state over a 33-day span that carries into early April.

The newest addition to Florida’s roster of spring training locations is $78 million JetBlue Park in Fort Myers. The new complex for the Boston Red Sox seats more than 10,000 fans with an additional 1,000 spaces designated for standing room. The park’s playing field dimensions are identical to those in Fenway Park in Boston and features a replica Green Monster in left field and manual scoreboard.

The Detroit Tigers are returning to Lakeland for their 76th spring.
