Red Sox Pitchers, Catchers, Others Report To Fort Myers

A multitude of Red Sox players have reported to the team's Spring Training facility in Fort Myers, Florida—and not just pitchers and catchers. Hanley Ramirez has been spotted (with a new first-baseman's mitt) moving around the bag. Allen Craig (remember him?) is also around as a non-roster invitee. Perhaps the surest sign of Spring is the sweet sound of Sox hitters taking swings in the bating cage. No matter how you slice it, this is a watershed week for baseball fans. Super Bowl over, March Madness way off down the road, NBA and NHL in All-Star stasis. This is where the action is.
