Red Sox fans get ready for JetBlue Park
See the Boston Red Sox on your Florida Vacation
For those of you who need your sports fix while drenching your bodies in sun, Fort Myers’ new spring training home for the Boston Red Sox, JetBlue Park, is almost ready for fans. We’ve got a rendering of the new stadium to give you a sneak peek and will post actual photos once they let us inside!
The JetBlue Ballpark
The $78 million ballpark has seating for 11,000 and has adapted a number of elements from Fenway Park so fans and players feel at home – a manual scoreboard and in left field, the 37-foot high Green Monster. Fans can even sit seating on top of or behind the wall, just like at home. JetBlue Park also has six practice fields, an HD video board and interactive areas for families. State-of-the-art training facilities also include a rehabilitation center and major and minor league operations.
Public Open House
Mark your calendars for the public open house on February 25th!
Workouts start on Feb. 25th and the first game is slated for March 3 so get your tickets early – the Yankees and Phillies games at the end of March are already sold out! You can get your tickets and special offers online or call 239-334-4700 or 877-REDSOX9. Packages for the following Fort Myers hotels are included as well as the Seaside Inn on Sanibel Island and the Pink Shell Resort & Marina on Fort Myers Beach:
- Holiday Inn
- Best Western Airport Inn
- Hotel Indigo
- Courtyard by Marriott
- Spring Hill Suites
- Crown Plaza
Upgrade packages include a VIP BBQ where you can grab autographs and take part in a Q&A with Red Sox players and a team manager. Attendance by celebrity players isn’t known in advance but in 2011 fans met Terry Francona, Dustin Pedroia, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Take batting practice
Another package gives you the chance to take batting practice along with a brunch. This is limited to 50 guests so make sure you book this early.
Along with a breakfast during the VIP Tour of JetBlue Park, the real perk is getting into the ballpark early for an insider’s peek of batting practice.
