On Heals of Patriots Loss, It's Time to Turn to Baseball

Ok, we know you’re not happy about the Patriots loss. But instead of saying, “wait ‘till next year,” we should be saying “when does baseball start?”

Really, it’s not that far away. Get this, pitchers and catchers first workout in Fort Myers is February 14th, and February 19th is the first full squad workout.

How about spring training games? Well, the first ones are at Jet Blue Park against Northeastern and Boston College in a split squad on Thursday, February 22nd. Then on February 23rd, the Red Sox take on the Minnesota Twins in at 1:05pm to start the Grapefruit league season. In total, the Red Sox will play 35 spring training games.

The regular season starts in March this year. Yes.. March 29th in Tampa Bay against the Rays at 4:00pm. The home opener in Fenway is April 5th, again taking on Tampa Bay. This all means warmer weather is on the way.

Go Sox! Looks like we can’t wait can we.
