JetBlue Park located in Fort Myers, Fla., was opened Feb. 25, 2012. JetBlue Park was designed to share many similar characteristics as Fenway Park. Some $78 million dollars later, JetBlue Park is equipped with a mock “Green Monster” in left field along with a manual scoreboard. The Red Sox will take the field on Feb. 27, with much anticipation! Located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, Fort Myers is known as a major tourist destination in Florida. The Boston boys are thrilled to take on 68 degree weather and prepare to defend their world champion title. Just six miles from the ballpark is the Bell Tower Shops which includes plenty of shopping along with dozens of restaurants where you can find players on their off days.
