Atmosphere

The excitement of attending Red Sox spring training starts well before first pitch. If you want to enjoy Sox spring training to the fullest, then make sure to get to Fenway South early and catch the team practicing. Practices are open to the public and start at 9:30 am, so get here early to get unparalleled access to all your favorite Sox players.

Additionally, when arriving at the ballpark early, you’ll want to take the opportunity to see the Ted Williams statue and the retired numbers outside the ballpark. Both exhibits pay tribute to the best players in Sox history and present fun photo ops, making them both must-see parts of spring training.

Finally, no trip to Fenway South is complete without taking some time to enjoy the atmosphere found on Fenway South Drive. The party atmosphere here mimics what you’ll find on Yawkey Way, and as a result, Fenway South Drive is the best place to hang out before the game starts. Grab some grub and souvenirs on Fenway South Drive before heading into the ballpark to watch your Sox tune-up before the season.
