With the rain still coming down in Fort Myers, the rules of the Beautyrest Baggo Classic needed to be amended a little bit.
That’s why on Friday when newcomer Shane Victorino came to take his turn to toss the bag, he was entering a new venue — the BaggoDome. Of course, with a new setting came some new rules, with Victorino being allowed a mulligan if he hit the roof of the building — unlike the Tropicana Dome, where the ball is still in play.
But did the new venue help out Victorino? Is he going onto the next round? Check out the suspense in the video above.

Shane Victorino wasn’t even wearing a Red Sox uniform during the 2012 season, but he says he’s already tired of hearing about last year in Boston.
To be sure, much of the talk surrounding the Sox is how they’ll be able to bounce back after a disappointing campaign, but with the positive attitude of Victorino, things are bound to get better. The Red Sox’ new right fielder...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
That could be an important spot, since starting first baseman Mike
Napoli is not a great defender and the Sox would like someone who could
serve as a late-inning defensive replacement. Also, Napoli'...
In keeping with our current trend here at Red Sox Life we
want to supply you (Red Sox Nation) with a plethora of spring training videos. The
video below is an interesting contrast of styles as Shane Victorino, Jonny
Gomes and David Ortiz take live batting practice on Friday at JetBlue Park.
One of the funniest moments during the 2:09 video was when David Ortiz made an "...
The Boston Red Sox have had sellouts for nearly 10 years. That could be coming to an end according to team president Larry Lucchino.
Lucchino believes the Red Sox sellout streak at Fenway Park will end sometime in April – maybe as early as the teams second game.
The Red Sox have sold out 793 games dating back to May, 15 2003. While the streak is the longest in Major League Baseball...
Suffice to say, 2012 was a bizarre season for Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox.
After an uncharacteristic losing campaign experienced by the scrappy second baseman, Pedroia went home and, according to him, had a relatively normal offseason. Nonetheless, Pedroia says that, despite what happened last year, the expectations for himself and the team are just as high as they ever were,...
The Boston Red Sox are looking for a bounce-back year in 2013. For that to happen, their stars will need to be happy. The team gave David Ortiz a two-year deal this offseason despite his achilles problems, and they gave Mike Napoli a one-year deal despite his hip concerns. Both players have arrived in camp, and both are looking healthy.
According to Alex Speier of WEEI...
It was a wild ride, but the NESN Spring Training Kickoff Tour has come to a close. Fortunately, that means we’re that much closer to Opening Day.
Don Orsillo, Jerry Remy and Jenny Dell concluded their four-day tour by spending an eventful day in Rhode Island that included a number of stops, plenty of laughs and now countless memories.
The crew kicked off the day in Providence,...

It doesn’t get much better than this as the 2013 Red Sox take the field for the first time at JetBlue Park. This means that
spring training has “officially” begun, and we (Red Sox Nation) can start to analyze players,
schedules and possible organizational pitfalls - like any good Red Sox fan would.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. The Sox look a bit
Jon Lester and his fellow Red Sox pitchers are working their way back to Opening Day form, but even spring training leaves them time for other activities.
On Wednesday, Lester apparently spent that free time working on his fishing, and he had quite a successful outing. Now, the catch is not as big as the 500-pounder the Angels’ Mike Trout reeled in, but Lester’s catch is still...
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington took all of 38
seconds to discuss Jacoby Ellsbury and the possibility that the injury-prone
center fielder could be a distraction to the team this season. Cherington gave a
canned and somewhat boring answer when asked about his prized leadoff hitter,
but that’s not to say Cherington isn't thinking long term. With Ellsbury under
When the Red Sox signed John Lackey as a free agent in December of 2009, they had some concern about an existing elbow injury, but not enough concern to walk away from the deal entirely. So, they (or maybe his agent) came up with a pretty creative solution, adding a league minimum club option to the end of the deal if Lackey missed significant time due to an elbow issue. Sure enough...
One big question mark coming into spring training this
season was the health of John Lackey. Lackey had Tommy John surgery in 2011
during the off-season which landed him on the disabled list the entire 2012
season. Now Lackey is back and ready to kick start his career by providing the
Red Sox with some much needed depth in the starting rotation.
It’s not surprising that...
Considering the Japanese bust pilfered millions of dollars from the Red Sox, bush league Cleveland pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka said he’s thrilled to have an opportunity to shutdown Boston as a member of the Indians. Matsuzaka, who fleeced Boston and milked … Continue reading →
Any viewer joining Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo on a Red Sox broadcast knows that the former second baseman likes to have a fit of laughter every once and a while. They just might not expect to encounter one of the classic giggle fits during a call to customer service.
During a stop on the NESN Tour this Wednesday, the RemDawg helped field customer support calls at Comcast offices...
