The players tested a lot of new equipment so they'd be ready for next season. They tested mattresses, chose the perfect pillows, blankets and sheets — all to improve their dingy "sleep room."

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene. Boston Red Sox players had a busy week last week. The players had to test a lot of new equipment so they'd be ready for next season - napping equipment, that is. The baseball players tested mattresses, chose the perfect pillows, blankets and sheets, all to improve their dingy sleep room, a small room at Fenway Park where players and coaches can catch some ZZZ before a game. Consider this my formal request for high-tech napping facilities here at NPR West. It's MORNING EDITION.
