The Red Sox announced this afternoon that tickets for all 2009 spring training home games at City of Palms Park in Fort Myers, Fla. will go on sale Saturday, Dec. 6. The club also released its 37-game spring schedule, which includes 18 home games.

The Sox will open their spring schedule Wednesday, Feb. 25 with split squad games, hosting Boston College at 1:05 p.m. at City of Palms Park and traveling across Fort Myers to take on the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium at 7:05 p.m.
