Not only is February 6th National Wear Red Day, It is also ‘Truck Day’, a very important day for the Red Sox. Truck Day means that baseball season is almost here!! This is the day when the Red Sox moving van loads up all of the equipment at Fenway Park and then takes the 1,467-mile trek to the team’s spring training complex in Fort Myers, Florida.
In honor of Wear RED day, here are my two RED photos… (Truck Day photos from 2008 ~ both are linked to the source/the Boston Globe):
