The Boston Red Sox announced Monday that 2012 spring training ticket sales set a record.
Tickets went on sale Saturday for the inaugural season of JetBlue Park at Fenway South, the team’s new 106-acre Spring Training and Player Development Complex in south Fort Myers.
The number of tickets sold Saturday through Sunday was 34,705 – the highest since 2006 when 34,315 tickets were sold for the 2007 Spring Training season.
“We are grateful for the extraordinary support fans have shown this weekend – many of whom were lining up days in advance for an opportunity to purchase tickets to the opening season of JetBlue Park at Fenway South,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President/Business Affairs Jonathan Gilula.
Tickets can be purchased at the City of Palms Park ticket office in Fort Myers Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., online at redsox.com, or by phone at 877-REDSOX9.
