Red Sox 6, Phillies 1
If Spring Training is baseball-lite, then watching a game at jetBlue Park is full flavor, with extra calories. The Red Sox park in Ft. Myers is considered Fenway South. The park has an original scoreboard from Fenway, and the field is the same dimensions as its counterpart in Boston. The flavor is Boston as well. Sam Adams is on tap, and there's a crab food truck. A game at jetBlue feels like a major-league Boston game, down to the long lines for food and the number of young, outspoken fans. But this park is newer, cleaner and more accessible, which would make any Boston fan green with envy.
