Most folks come to Sanibel Island, and Southwest Florida in general, for the beach and the sunshine – things greatly missed up north. But, in February and March, we also greet visitors whose idea of the perfect vacation is sitting on a hard seat in a crowded ball park. Welcome to Spring Training!
Lee County is blessed with two major league teams who train here; The Boston Red Sox, who play at JetBlue Park and The Minnesota Twins, who play at Hammond Stadium, attract thousands of baseball fans to Southwest Florida for the action. Click the links above to check out the Spring Training schedules for both teams.
Beautiful Sanibel Island is an easy drive to both stadiums. If you count you’re a Sox or Twins fan, now is the time to book your accommodations for March. Don’t wait! This is a popular time to vacation, even without baseball. Visit us at Gulf Breeze Cottages, on the fabulous Sanibel beach. Combine a Gulf Front vacation with your favorite past-time – what could be better?
