Boston Red Sox Spring Training in Fort Myers
JetBlue Park at Fenway South represents a dramatic change for the Boston Red Sox when it comes to spring training.
Located on the outskirts of Fort Myers, next to one of those ubiquitous Florida planned communities (Gateway, with the requisite designer golf course), the spring-training complex solves a few issues faced by the Red Sox when training at City of Palms Park: the lack of a unified spring-training experience (the minor-league camp was located more than a mile to the east, forcing players and staff to shuttle between the two facilities) and the lack of any development opportunities around the ballpark.
City of Palms Park is actually a decent little ballpark, through the stress must be placed on little: landlocked in a sea of residential housing, there was no place to add capacity or other development, making the ballpark impossible to expand and forcing the Red Sox to limit capacity at a time when Red Sox Nation is still booming.
JetBlue Park, on the other hand, is a totally different experience. With berm seating, it seats 11,000 – larger than City of Palms Park, to be sure. It’s partially based on Fenway Park in some overt ways (there is a Green Monster in left field) and some subtle ways. These subtle ways make the ballpark unique – and also different from Fenway Park or City of Palms Park.
