Red Sox' JetBlue Park Gets High Marks As Team's Fenway Park South
Published February 20, 2012
SECOND HOME: In Boston, John Tomase wrote New Englanders "looking for a taste of summer will not be disappointed in JetBlue Park." The park "features a 37-foot wall in left field, a familiar hand-operated scoreboard, and dimensions that any Sox fan can recite in their sleep: 310 to left, 379 to left-center, 420 to the triangle, 380 to right." In addition to the park, there are "state-of-the-art training facilities." The park, which "seats nearly 11,000, sits off Daniels Parkway just minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport." It "boasts eight private suites" (BOSTON HERALD, 2/18). Also in Boston, Dan Shaughnessy wrote fans are "going to love Fenway South." Shaughnessy: "I particularly like the authentic, tinny manual scoreboard in left field" (BOSTON GLOBE, 2/19).
