Gates open to fans tomorrow at 9 a.m.

This from the Red Sox:

The Red Sox today announced that fans are invited to visit the player development complex at Fenway South beginning when pitchers and catchers report tomorrow, February 19, from 9 a.m. to noon. The player development complex will also be open on Monday from 9 a.m. to noon and fans are invited to attend workouts beginning on Tuesday.

Tours of JetBlue Park begin on Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cost $5 per person. Tickets for tours may be purchased from the JetBlue Park box office.

Fenway South, the team’s new 106-acre Spring Training and Player Development Complex, is located at 11581 Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers, approximately two miles east of Interstate 75 and approximately six miles from Southwest Florida International Airport. Fans may enter the complex through the West Gate.

The first official team workout with pitchers and catchers will be on Tuesday. Position players report to spring training on Thursday with Boston’s first full squad workout scheduled for next Saturday.

Fair warning: don’t expect to see too much for the next two days beyond the park and the grounds. The will be some players on the field tomorrow but no formal workouts involving the whole team. On Monday, much of the day will be consumed with physicals.

The actual workouts start on Tuesday. Bring a hat or wear sunscreen. There is not a lot of shade around the park. And no throwing things at the beat writers.
