Red Sox Plan To Use These Ballparks For MLB’s Spring Training 2.0

There was much to discuss Wednesday in a conference call between reporters, Boston Red Sox president and CEO, Sam Kennedy, and chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom.

It was the first media availability since Major League Baseball and its players union agreed upon a 60-game season and extensive health and safety protocols.

Kennedy and Bloom made it clear that their organization is completely committed to playing baseball this year, and that means having “Spring Training 2.0” in their home markets as opposed to Florida, where COVID-19 cases continue to spike.

But workouts may not be limited to just Fenway Park.

The Red Sox have inquired with Boston College about potential use of new facility, Brighton Field, as well as use of McCoy Stadium, the home of Triple-A Pawtucket, according to multiple reports.

During the first two weeks of the season, teams will be allowed to carry 30 players and it will decrease from there. Meanwhile, phase one of training camp will only permit small group workouts consisting of a few players.

At first, it may make sense to spread these groups out across various fields in the Greater Boston Area to make staggering workouts between groups a bit easier.
