Boston Red Sox hire new GM of Fenway South complex

Published: Updated:

The Boston Red Sox hired a new general manager to oversee the year-round presence of the Fenway South sports complex, which for six weeks each year serves as the team’s spring training home off Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers.

Shawn Smith, most recently a business consultant to the team, spent nine years working for late NBA Commissioner David Stern in the league’s corporate office and more than a decade overseeing the Lowell Spinners, a minor league affiliate of the Red Sox.

Now, Smith will be tasked with bringing more year-round events to JetBlue Park and the surrounding sports complex that has hosted rock concerts, amateur baseball tournaments and other events since replacing City of Palms Park as the team’s preseason home in 2012.
