Play ball!

The Red Sox get back on the field for the first time since Game 4 of the World Series this afternoon, albeit against a bunch of local college kids in a doubleheader exhibition.

They’ll face Boston College at 1:05 p.m. at City of Palms Park in Fort Myers, Fla. and will take on Northeastern at 6:05 p.m. There’s no TV coverage of today’s games, but you can listen to the nightcap on 850 WEEI AM.
