Day 9 – On to see the Red Sox

We had intended to get to Sanibel Island this day, but the Red Sox beckoned, so we drove on to JetBlue Park, home of the Red Sox Spring Training Program – Trixie had thought that would be enough for Mum to see, but no, we had to go to the night game at 7:00, but tickets were sold out.

So we hung around to the gift shop, and then to see the Sox play the Twins in their practice fields. There are a total of six fields behind the sprawling ballpark, and the AA and AAA teams were playing; Minnesota Twins vs the Red Sox. It worked out well enough; we managed to get a couple of new players to sign a ball for us. Now all we have to do is hope they go on to become superstars, and the ball will pay for Pop’s retirement!
