Founded in 1901 as one of the American League's eight charter franchises, the Red Sox's home ballpark has been Fenway Park since 1912. The "Red Sox" name was chosen by the team owner, John I. Taylor, around 1908, following previous Boston teams that had been known as the "Red Stockings".

Fort Myers in Lee County has been the spring-training home of the Boston Red Sox since 1993, when the team moved from Winter Haven's Chain of Lakes Park. The Red Sox train at City of Palms Park, while the minor-league facility, featuring five full fields, is a short distance away.

The stadium is done in a pure Florida style, with a main covered grandstand and palm trees past the outfield fence. There are two sections separated by a concourse: the section closest to the action contains box seats and the section past the concourse contains bleachers. The complex contains a 9,000-square-foot visiting-team clubhouse, and four enclosed batting tunnels. The facility also features administrative offices, three executive booths, and complete media facilities. It was designed by HOK Sport, the architect of many other pro stadiums across the country.

The stadium is also used by the Gulf Coast Rookie League's Red Sox.

The Minnesota Twins also train in Fort Myers.
