‘Truck Day’ to Shed a Ray of Sunshine on Wintry Week
While Southern New England continues to dig out of the snow this week, the Boston Red Sox hope to warm up the hearts of Red Sox Nation with the 18th annual Truck Day.
On Wednesday, a large 53-foot truck will depart from Fenway Park filled with an assortment of equipment and supplies, including: 20,400 baseballs; 1,100 bats; 200 pairs of batting gloves and helmets; 300 pairs of pants; and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.
The truck will leave Fenway at noon and, for the first time ever, will stop at McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Sox. It should arrive around 1pm and offer fans a chance to take photos and partake in other activities. The truck will then leave McCoy around 1:30pm as it continue its journey south to Fort Myers, FL.
Truck Day marks the unofficial start of Spring Training and has been a Red Sox tradition since 2003. Since the beginning, the truck has been driven by Milford, MA native Al Hartz.
