JetBlue Park, the Boston Red Sox new spring training home in Fort Myers, Florida is taking shape. The cement bowl frame appears to be near completion. The roof supports are up, at least on the third base side and a few sections of the roof are attached.
It won’t be long before 11,000 Boston Red Sox fans will be watching the 2012 edition of their team in a brand spanking new state of the art facility. The complex will also house a rehabilitation center, six practice fields and offices for major and minor league operations.
While Red Sox Nation is more concerned with the old Boston team making their run at the playoffs, work on the new spring training home continues. It is hard to believe they entered September with a nine game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. We may have to depend on the NY Yankees to help us out. The Yankees and Rays will battle in seven of the last ten games of the regular season. How difficult will it be for a Boston fan to root for the New York Yankees?
In any event, I wanted to share these photos with other Red Sox fans interested in the new spring training site of our beloved team. This blog and others will contain pictures of the construction progress of the park many of you will soon be sitting in. Construction is scheduled to finish in mid January. That’s just four months away
