LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The wait is over for Red Sox fans. For the very first time WINK cameras are getting a special look inside the brand new JetBlue Park, the new spring home for the Boston Red Sox.
Welcome to JetBlue Park, the expansive new home of the Boston Red Sox spring training grounds. "I can say we are thrilled to be here, a year ago this was a pile of dirt," said Katie Haas.
The park features the same seating and playing field dimensions as Fenway Park.
Katie Haas, Director of Florida Business Operations with the Boston Red Sox says from the locker rooms to the cover over the seats this is a state of the art facility
"There are six practice fields plus the main ballpark field," she said.
The entire Fenway South expands 106 acres and JetBlue Park can seat about 11,000 fans, all with a great view to the main field.
Every seat is a great seat, you're close to the field, it's going to be a really great experience for fans," said Haas.
And if you're a fan, you'll recognize the near replica of the iconic Green Monster.
"We've got a Green Monster Wall that you can see behind me but it's not the same as Boston the seats are actually inside the wall as well as on top," said Haas.
Also featured is a restored manual scoreboard that served fans for almost three decades at Fenway Park starting in 1976.
"We put it on this Green Monster Wall here , and its going to be front-loaded instead of back-loaded at Fenway," said Haas.
If you're a fan and wondering when you can take a peek in the park, an official grand opening celebration will be held February 25th at 11:30am.
