But the Super Bowl is over. It’s been about 100 days since we last saw a pitch thrown or a bat swung. And while it’s not quite time for that yet, today is our first sign that we’re at least getting close. For today is Truck Day, when the equipment from Fenway is loaded onto a truck for the nearly 1,500 mile trek to the City of Palms Park for Spring Training.
The usual fanfare awaits for those who are willing to brave the cold with Red Sox ambassadors and Wally (for the kids and young-at-heart) there to greet the devoted attendees.
One week till pitchers and catchers report. Ten days until everyone else joins them. Just three weeks from the Red Sox playing baseball, even if it isn’t for keeps just yet.
It’s baseball season. Y’all ready?
