Boston Red Sox left-handed reliever Rich Hill reported to spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., on Thursday after the death of his infant son.

His son, Brooks, was less than 2 months old when he died on Feb. 24 in Boston.

“My wife (Caitlin) has been extremely strong,” Hill said Thursday. “Our son (Brice), who is 2 1/2, is with us here down in Florida, so we are going to enjoy our time here and obviously make the most of the opportunity that’s here to present itself to play baseball.”

Hill, who turns 34 on Tuesday, signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox during the offseason so he could remain close to his family in Boston and Milton, Mass.
