FORT MYERS- Boston Red Sox fans have already lined up to get first picks of this season's training tickets.

Tickets aren't up for grabs until Saturday morning, but fans told WINK News camping out in line is like hanging out with family.

Die-hard fan Mark Griffith of Naples said, “It's about the comradery between the Red Sox fans and just the anticipation of getting your tickets.”

He said he will pass time by texting, eating, playing games and just talking baseball.
