It’s Red Sox photo day in Fort Myers

Victor Martinez

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Say cheese!

Today is the Red Sox official photo day at the players development complex. For the first time this spring, the guys put on their home whites for the cameras and the photographers clicked away to get some images that will used for a variety of publications, including baseball cards and ballpark programs.

The Globe’s Barry Chin snapped a few shots of Victor Martinez (above), Tim Wakefield, Kevin Youkilis, Mike Lowell (below), Josh Beckett, and other players that struck the pose early on this sunny but cool morning in Fort Myers.

“Don’t get any pictures of me smiling,” a joking Josh Beckett said. “I don’t want anybody to think I’m enjoying myself down here.”


We’ve got more scenes from photo day and today’s workout in our spring training photo gallery today, the fifth full-squad workout for the team.

For Sunday’s batting practice, some of the arms that will take the mound: Josh Beckett, Boof Bonser, Junichi Tazawa on Field 2. Jon Lester, Michael Bowden on Field 3. John Lackey, Clay Buchholz on Field 4. Tim Wakefield on Field 5.
