Today is TRUCK DAY!!!
Truck Day marks the symbolic start of a new Red Sox season. It is a tradition, which began in 2003. 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 down to the Red Sox spring training complex in the City of Palms Park in Fort Myers, Florida.
According to NESN and a press release, here’s what the truck will be carrying this year:
-200 batting gloves
-200 batting helmets
-320 batting practice tops
-160 white game jerseys
-300 pairs of pants
-400 pairs of socks
-20 cases of bubble gum
-60 cases of sunflower seeds
Happy Truck Day!
