The Truck Leaves February 6th

The annual Red Sox ritual of "Truck Day" for 2009 will be February 6th. For those unaware, that is the day the Red Sox pack up all the relevant baseball gear from Fenway Park and put it all in an 18-wheeler and ship it down to Ft. Myers, Florida. The trip, nearly 1500 miles, should take three days.

The Red Sox make a big deal out of it, and it is the first sign that winter is on its back nine and spring is on the way. Here's more about Truck Day from the Extra Bases blog.

Hello to you, Q. This is the first real sign of spring and February 6th will be here before we know it. I hope Varitek will be, too.
Take care, John. Another 4 degree morning here...BRR!

Stay warm, Peter! Spring is on the way, and I bet Tek will be back in the fold soon.
