According to Red Sox  center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury  (via twitter ), the plane that he and teammate Dustin Pedroia  were flying on from Arizona to join the Red Sox at spring training was struck by lightning. Ellsbury, who tweeted about the incident just before 5 p.m. EST, seemed to have a positive disposition about the incident.
Our plane just got struck by lightning heading to Ft. Myers! #itsgoodluck
