Serving as another sign that baseball season is fast approaching, the 2010 Red Sox media guide and the spring training edition of the 2010 Red Sox Magazine are now available.

The first of seven editions of the magazine features catchers Jason Varitek and Victor Martinez as the cover story. The issue also includes a story on the new faces on this year’s club, an interview with first-base coach Ron Johnson, a trip down memory lane to spring training 1975 with the eventual American League champion squad and an article on Super Bowl-winning quarterback Drew Brees’ connection to Ted Williams.

Fans can also visit redsox.com/magazine for additional coverage, including video of the Varitek-Martinez cover shoot.

The media guide includes 530 pages of facts, statistics, player and staff biographies, records and history.

Both publications can be purchased online at redsox.com, over the phone by calling 781-545-5702, at City of Palms Park in Fort Myers during spring training and at Fenway Park during the season.
