Today in Boston, the unofficial start of Spring Training kicked off when the annual ritual of the tractor trailer truck moving equipment from Fenway Park to Fort Myers, Florida occurred this morning. Yes, it's Truck Day in Red Sox Nation.
Most of America looks at Groundhog Day as the harbinger of the coming spring, but for Red Sox fans, the Truck means that the spring is not far away.
The Truck, from Atlas Van Lines, left Fenway at 10 this morning, and will spend most of the time on Route 95 going down south. It should reach Ft. Myers by Sunday or Monday. And courtesy of the Boston Globe and Google, here is the route the Truck will be taking on its nearly 1,500 mile journey to Florida:
Hope you all have a Happy Truck Day. Raise a cold one tonight to the coming season, as spring is just around the corner.
