If the gator can't get tickets at Fenway Park, guess this is the next best thing? Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

An alligator apparently wanted to get some time in the batting cage at the Red Sox’s spring training complex.

The small alligator was recently spotted at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida, just hanging out in the cage, which you can see in the photo below.

Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. posted a funny reply to the photo, and had this to say about it:

“All I have to say is he better clean up those balls after he is done” Bradley wrote.

Everyone can use some extra BP — alligators included.

QUIZ: Name the full roster of the 1986 Boston Red Sox

In 1986, the Boston Red Sox nearly broke the 'Curse of the Bambino' with a World Series win, but lost 4-3 to the New York Mets in heart-breaking fashion. This was somewhat attributed to a ground ball trickling through a certain first baseman's legs, but Boston had many opportunities to win the series in Game 6. Can you name every member on the roster for this team?
