Saturday is "Truck Day!"

Recent, mild temperatures aren't the only reason why many Bostonians are thinking spring. This Saturday morning, February 9th, an 18-wheeler will depart from Fenway Park carrying the Red Sox' spring training equipment to Fort Myers, Florida. It's an 1,467-mile trek from Yawkey Way to Edison Avenue (Thanks to Boston.com for the map).
