The snow may be over 3-ft. and still falling in Boston, but it's Truck Day for the Red Sox and the promise of Spring Training is in the air.

Truck Day hauling in Spring

For those who’ve never heard of Truck Day, it’s that harbinger of warmer weather when Major League Baseball teams load up fleets of trucks with equipment and other player essentials and head off to Spring Training. 

And the good news for those shoveling out from the latest snow and ice storm is the trailers are filling up right now and will soon be on their way, according to this report from MLB’s Cut4.

It’s not just bats, balls and gloves. The article offers Tweeted pictures of Terry Francona’s red scooter, skids of those essential sunflower seeds for Cleveland players, cases and cases of Gatorade to keep the White Sox hydrated, and videos of 40,000 lbs. of Rockies’ uniforms and other equipment being loaded into one of their trailers.  #TruckDay
