FORT MYERS, Fla. --- The Boston Red Sox baseball team will offer complimentary tickets to the opening single admission doubleheader game for its Spring Training season to first responders. 

All first responders in Southwest Florida including police, sheriff, emergency medical service, fire personnel and active military will receive two free tickets with proper ID. 

The complimentary tickets will be available for pick up at the JetBlue Park box office, starting February 1 thru the 17th, on a first-come, first serve basis. 

"The Red Sox' Hats Off to Heroes presented by John Hancock salutes those who protect our way of life each and every day," said Katie Haas, vice president of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox. "This year we wanted to thank all of the first responders who worked nonstop for our Southwest Florida community during Hurricane Irma."

Following Hurricane Irma the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins donated $100,000 to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
