Spring is upon us and that means one thing for Red Sox fans: Truck Day. Every year, the truck carrying pieces of Red Sox equipment embarks on its annual pilgrimage to Fort Myers, Fla. This year, the truck will be loaded with an impressive 20,400 baseballs, 1,100 bats, 200 batting gloves, 200 batting helmets, 320 Batting Practice tops, 300 pairs of pants, 400 t-shirts, 400 pairs of socks, 20 cases of bubble gum, and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.
The truck will leave Fenway Park and make a stop at Polar Park in Worcester, Mass. before continuing on its journey. Pitchers and catchers will report on February 14th, with the first full team workout set for February 20th.
This annual tradition marks the beginning of the baseball season, and serves as a reminder that warmer weather is on the way. With the truck packed and ready to go, Red Sox fans can look forward to the upcoming season with anticipation and excitement.
