“Truck Day” At Fenway

It’s “Truck Day!” It’s the unofficial beginning of the Red Sox baseball season. It’s the day the truck full of the player’s equipment leaves Fenway for Fort Myers. The 18-wheeler travels almost 1,500 miles to bring the gloves, bats and every thing else they’ll need for spring training.

Pitchers and catchers report to Florida this weekend, the rest of the team the days closely following. After the Patriots went down in the AFC Championship game and the Celtics’ Rajon Rondo’s season ending injury this is some exciting and refreshing news for sure. Soon we’ll get reports from Jerry Remy,  Don Orsillo and Tom Caron.

I guess “Truck Day” is tradition, but it would seem cheaper and more efficient to bring the equipment down by plane or have two sets, one for Fort Myers and another for Fenway. Whether it makes sense or not every year at this time, Red Sox fans give the truck love as it leaves. Like loved ones wave to family and friends as a ship leaves on a cruise. Let’s just hope this season Boston doesn’t go down like the Titanic.
