That’s when the picture above was taken.  The picture which sums up how every Red Sox fan felt that night and for the subsequent months, until today.  All the frustration, anger, and disbelief can now be exchanged for hope, excitement, and expectation.

The Boston Red Sox open camp at Fenway South, the team’s new 106-acre Spring Training and Player Development Complex, today when 34 pitchers and six catchers will participate in the team’s first official workout.

All workouts from February 21-March 2 will take place at the Fenway South Player Development Complex.  On most days the workouts will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m.

The team’s first full-squad workout is scheduled for Saturday, February 25. The Red Sox will have 64 players in Major League camp with 13 infielders and 11 outfielders joining the pitchers and catchers.

Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) of is there in Ft. Myers and posted the picture below on Twitter this morning of the opening moments of the first workout of 2012.  He’s a must-follow if you’re a Sox fan with a Twitter account.
