QUOTE 9:38 A.M. — The ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Boston Red Sox spring training complex is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 27, 2010, at the site, 11581 Daniels Parkway. That's a little more than a mile east of I-75.
Commissioner Frank Mann will be the master of ceremonies.
The date was selected because the Red Sox will be playing the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg that weekend and Red Sox officials may be able to attend the event.
Preliminary site work on the project has already begun.
The facility is expected to be ready in time for 2012 spring training.
The Red Sox have one more spring training remaining at City of Palms Park, their home since 1993.
