It has become a Spring Training tradition, and as per usual on St. Patrick’s Day, the Red Sox will be wearing their green uniforms today as they take on the St. Louis Cardinals at JetBlue Park in Ft. Myers.
The Red Sox gave the public a sneak peak of the uniforms on Twitter yesterday:

Earlier today they also tweeted out a photo of their St. Patrick’s Day hats, featuring the model to be worn by Jonny Gomes.

It seems that it’s not just the Red Sox who are in the St. Paddy’s Day spirits, as the team found this on their clubhouse whiteboard as they arrived to face the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.
