The Gulf Coast League Red Sox are the rookie level Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. The team is located in Fort Myers, Florida, and plays its home games at the jetBlue Park in the Fenway South complex. Previously, the GCL Red Sox played at City of Palms Park.

Gulf Coast League team rosters are thirty players, and cannot have more than twelve players over 20 years old, and no more than four players over 21. No player can have more than two years of prior service, excluding Rookie leagues outside the United States and Canada. The team is composed mainly of players who are in their first year of professional baseball, either as draftees or non-drafted free agents from the United States, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela, among other countries. Injured players from the Boston Red Sox and their minor league system occasionally play for the GCL Red Sox as their first step on a rehabilitation assignment.
