Derek DeArmond's claim to fame is that he was the first ticket buyer at the new JetBlue park last year and this year he is back at it again.
"Got to keep it up, be the first one to get tickets again this year," said DeArmond.
Red Sox spring training tickets don't go on sale until Saturday(Dec. 8) at 10am, but already Derek's pitched a tent and is ready to wait it out.
"I've been a Red Sox fan for about 12 years and this is my 12th year in line," said DeArmond.
He's not alone, Guy Sepielli slept in his car last night. He's been camping out since Sunday night.
"I usually let Derek set the bar and come in behind him andbasically when he says alright, we're going to go now, we go now," said Sepielli.
Tickets for the games range from $5 for lawn seats to $46 for seats in the dugout box behind home plate. The guys say there's 2 main games they want to see.
"I like to get Yankees/Red Sox tickets and probably St. Patty's day tickets. Those are the best games that come here," said Sepielli.
