An authentic Red Sox uniform and cap, a Red Sox road jersey, games each day with instruction by former Red Sox players, the ''big game" against those former Red Sox at City of Palms Park, hotel accommodations (double occupancy) at the Best Western Waterfront in Fort Myers, round-trip air transportation from anywhere in the United States to Fort Myers and transportation from the hotel to the ball fields daily, breakfast and lunch each day, an awards banquet, and, among other souvenirs and perks, an autographed ball.
Among the most enticing extras are Fantasy Camp Reunion Night during the 2005 season at Fenway Park and an invitation to play a game at Fenway during the summer. (2005 dates to be announced.)
Though under the umbrella of the Boston Red Sox organization, Red Sox Fantasy Camp is operated by Baseball Camps & Tours Inc.
