Win a choice of great MLB Spring Training experiences

Sun 25 Aug 2019


BaseballSoftballUK is running an exclusive online auction where baseball and softball fans in both the UK and overseas can bid to win a choice of two amazing experiences watching the Boston Red Sox or the Minnesota Twins at MLB Spring Training games in Florida in 2020.

Bid HERE.

Thanks to our friends at Lee County Sports Development, sports fans can combine a winter trip to the Florida sunshine in 2020 with exciting baseball action either at JetBlue Park, the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox or Hammond Park, the Spring Training home of the Minnesota Twins – both in Fort Myers, on Florida’s southwest coast.

JetBlue Park at Fenway South, also known as JetBlue Park, has the exact field dimensions of Fenway Park, where the Boston Red Sox play during the regular season, complete with a replica of the Green Monster, the famous wall in left field. The Red Sox play approximately 20 games at JetBlue Park each year, which has a capacity for almost 11,000 spectators, and their successful world championship seasons in 2018 and 2013 both stared in Fort Myers.
 
Meanwhile, the Minnesota Twins have called the Gulf of Mexico coastline their spring training destination since 1991. That same year, they won a record 21 games during spring training before going on to win the World Series. Hammond Stadium welcomes them back each spring, as well as hosting minor league games throughout the year.

The prizes

There are two levels of prizes that can be won in the online auction. Bids are available in £5 increments after the initial starting price.

The main prize, which is valued at more than US$2,000 (~£1,650) and will start at £20, includes:

  • A private suite for up to 20 guests to watch the Boston Red Sox play at JetBlue Park.
  • Food and drinks for the group.
  • Four car park passes. 

The second prize level, valued at over US$400 (~£320), starts with a £10 bid, consists of:

  • Four reserved seats to watch the Boston Red Sox play at JetBlue Park, including two car park passes.
  • Four reserved seats to watch the Minnesota Twins play at Hammond Stadium, including two car park passes.

Game schedules for Spring Training games are released in mid-November so you can plan your visit to either field well in advance here. Games happen nearly every day during Spring Training so there will be plenty of choice.
