JetBlue Park, the spring training ballpark for the Boston Red Sox opened Feb. 25, 2012. A number of the characteristics of the ballpark are taken from Fenway Park, including a "Green Monster" that features seating both on top of and behind the wall, as well as a manual scoreboard. JetBlue Park and the surrounding Complex capture elements that reflect its Southwest Florida location. Environmentally-sustainable features are incorporated throughout the facility and Complex, and the considerable landscaping features vegetation indigenous to the area.
The Complex provides state-of-the-art training facilities positioned on a single site and is used year-round. It includes JetBlue Park, the main ballpark with a total capacity of approximately 11,000 fans (including standing room and berm), six practice fields, and other adjoining facilities that house both the Major and Minor League operations and a rehabilitation center.
This facility is equipped with the WeatherBug Lightning Alert System. When the
system detects lightning within 10 miles of the facility, the air horns sound an
uninterrupted 15-second blast and the strobe light will activate. Park patrons
who hear the horn and/or see the light need to seek shelter immediately. When
the system no longer detects a threat, three 5-second blasts from the horn will
sound and the strobe light will stop working. This is the signal that it is safe
to return outdoors.
*If the connection is DOWN, please follow the National Weather Service 30/30 rule until it is restored.*
|The facility opened in the spring of 2012 at a cost of $78 million which was paid for by tourist tax dollars collected from hotel stays. That will keep the Boston Red Sox in Lee County for the next 30 years.|
