I have always wondered: what’s INSIDE the Red Sox truck? Of course we know it’s EQUIPMENT. But, what equipment, exactly?
It gives great pleasure to say that we are close to the day of love, passion and excitement. Valentines Day? NO. Red Sox Spring Training! Yes, today is TRUCK day! The magical day that the Red Sox equipment trucks starts it’s wonderful journey south! Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training around Valentines Day. According to Wikipedia:
The franchise’s first spring training was held in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1901. Since 1993, the city of Fort Myers, Florida, has hosted Boston’s spring training, first at City of Palms Park, and since 2012 at JetBlue Park at Fenway South.
According to WCVB, the Truck left TODAY at 12pm for it’s 1480 mile trip south to the Red Sox training home in Fort Myers, Florida.
The unofficial beginning of the spring training season for the Red Sox is Truck Day, the day a tractor-trailer filled with equipment leaves Fenway Park bound for the team’s spring training facility.
So, what’s INSIDE? Take a look at the amazing list of the items jam packed in the truck! Leading the way, is a flatbed carrying the Wally Green Monster!
