The Sweet Sounds Of Baseball

Saturday is Truck Day in Boston, when the Red Sox sends a truck filled with equipment to their spring training site in Fort Meyers, Florida. It’s an annual ritual that is well reported by the Boston media, and it's also a sign that spring will soon be upon us, and with it the 2008 baseball season. Will the Red Sox repeat? Let’s hope so. Some key dates:

  • Feb. 14 -- Pitchers and catchers are due to report to Fort Myers.
  • Feb. 16 -- First workout for pitchers and catchers.
  • Feb. 20 -- Reporting day for Sox position players.
  • Feb. 22 -- First Red Sox full squad workout.
  • Feb. 28 -- First Red Sox spring training game.
