SPRING TRAINING IS IN FULL SWING FOR OUR BELOVED BOSTON RED SOX….
Saturday February 16th, 2013
Spring Training has finally made it, in just a few short days our beloved Red Sox will open their spring training schedule at Jet Blue Park this week in Sunny and Warm Fort Myers Florida.
This team has a lot of work ahead of them and a lot to prove to their fans, the media and all the teams in the major leagues.
Hiring John Farrell as the team manager is the smartest thing the ownership group lead by Mr. John Henry has done. Farrell is a strict, discplinary leader and has all the skills this team needs to get back on the map and turn things around from last season.
With all the new faces in camp, and there certainly is some characters in this group to cheer and support, no doubt.
Pedro Martinez is lending a hand working with the pitchers.
Jason Varitek is back in Camp also instructing the catchers, pitchers and other players on the skills they need to work on to become better at the game.
