Baseball Season is Almost Here: Truck Day for the Red Sox

7 Feb

The truck from last year.

Football season is officially over, and although this is the first time that fact has made me sad, I am very happy to say that baseball season is here! Okay, so not quite yet, but spring training is right around the corner and pitchers and catchers report in about a week (depending on the club). But spring training can’t start until all the equipment is in Florida, because otherwise, well, it would be hard.

The Red Sox realize the importance of equipment and hold an annual “Truck Day”. I will be the first to admit that this is a pretty cool PR tool. After all, we all know how dedicated (read weird) the Red Sox fans are. So Truck Day is tomorrow, February 8th at approximately noon. So, what the hell is Truck Day you ask? It is where the Red Sox equipment truck will depart Fenway Park (at Gate D) and make the 1,480 mile trip down to Fort Myers, FL where the Red Sox make their spring home.

This isn’t just a truck making its way to the highway. No, there will be a processional of flatbed trucks carrying Wally the Green Monster and Fenway Ambassadors who will be tossing Red Sox baseballs and JetBlue giveaways.

Although I have never been due to me being out of the country or working, I think this is a great event. It is short, sweet and memorable. Why not take advantage of it? Plus, while you are by Fenway explore the area, catch a movie, grab a bite to eat. And enjoy the start of Spring.

How to get to Fenway Park: Green Line to Kenmore, turn left out of the turnstiles and left at the top of the stairs. Follow the stadium around until you see the crowd of people and the truck. Of course you can also get off at Fenway on the D line.
