Today's game will be the first media event of the young season. The Red Sox come to Jupiter and in tow they will bring their much ballyhooed free-agent pitcher.
The starting pitcher for the Marlins, in his first start this spring, Yusmeiro Petit. The Red Sox have on tap Daisuke Matsuzaka. Or if you prefer the Americanized version of his name, Dice-K.
Game time is at the usual 1:05 p.m.
If you are going to game it is recommended that you get there early since it is a sellout. If you don't already have a ticket but would like to catch the action, there are about 200 tickets for seats on the berm that will go on sale around 9:00 a.m. My guess is that they will go fast.
Daisuke is slated to throw about 40 pitches. Cabrera won't be in the Marlins lineup since it is his scheduled day off.
As far as spring training goes, this is an event.
