The Grapefruit League is back. Three major league baseball teams have their spring training complexes in Southwest Florida – the Tampa Bay Rays are in Port Charlotte and the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox are in Ft. Myers.
The Red Sox were warming up on Friday. Grey skies and off-and-on rain did not deter hundreds of fans from turning out as well.
Peter Frazier from Shrewsbury, Mass., and his wife were among crowd. He said they’re long-time Red Sox fans.
