How seriously do we take Truck Day? Very.
The truck arrived at Fenway Park this morning just after 6:30 a.m. and the packing began at around 7:00 a.m. with a crew of seven workers. The temperature was in the mid-20s, but it's bright and sunny, just like the place the truck is headed.
The truck will depart from Fenway around noon.
Yes, we get a schedule for the truck so we can watch it when it leaves. And you can peruse the photo gallery as well. Because nothing says "baseball" like 20 different pictures of a stationary moving truck.
But more importantly, now we know that pitchers and catchers report in less than a week. And that the first full-squad workout is in less than two weeks.
I missed you, baseball. Welcome back.
