Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees Spring Training Tuesday March 3, 2020

$129.00

Join us as we head down to Tampa to watch the most bitter rivalry in all of Major League Baseball as these two storied franchises square off in a fantastic setting during spring training.

The widely recognised story of how Major League Baseball’s spring training league in Florida came to be known as the Grapefruit League is, perhaps appropriately for a sport so built on the wacky and the weird, unconventional.

The tale goes that aviator Ruth Law had been throwing golf balls from her aeroplane to advertise a golf course in 1915, and to promote spring training, someone suggested throwing a baseball. Wilbert Robinson, manager of the then Brooklyn Dodgers, agreed to try to catch the baseball. Flying 525 feet above Robinson, Law realised she had forgotten her baseball and threw a grapefruit that she had. When Robinson tried to catch it, the grapefruit exploded in his face. The name stuck, and now 15 MLB franchises trek to the Sunshine State for a month and a half of pre-season activity, with the other half of the league competing in Arizona in the more straightforwardly named Cactus League.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are two of the teams in Florida. The Yankees are based in Tampa; the Red Sox two hours further south in Fort Myers.

Seats are in Section 218 Rows F-K.
