First Sign Of Spring

On Thursday, the Phils packed up an 18-wheeler and sent it on its way to Clearwater. The contents included 15,000 baseballs, 900 bats, 200 helmets, 7,500 cups, 18 coolers, 600 hats, 12 cases of sunflower seeds, 2,000 T-shirts, 350 pairs of shorts, 450 pairs of socks and 500 pairs of pants, along with video and training equipment, clothes and luggage, and golf clubs. The truck also contains some personal items.

"Guys who take their families have taken all kinds of things," clubhouse manager Phil Sheridan told phillies.com. "Big Wheels, cribs, playpens ... it's like Babies 'R Us some years. Guys bring bikes, though I don't know how often they get ridden. People take everything -- beach chairs, water toys, things they think they can't live without for seven weeks."

Pitcher and catchers report for physicals on Wednesday and will begin workouts the following day. Position players must report five days later.

I'm dying for some baseball, even if it's in the form of mostly meaningless spring training. Next Thursday, February 14th, is a holiday according to the calendar, but screw Valentine's Day I'm celebrating the start of spring training.

I love the shots of Truck Day at CBP versus the same thing outside Fenway.

CBP with all its modern touches allow for forklifts, pallets and a semi in the bowels of the stadium.

The truck outside Fenway is loaded by hand mostly with clubhouse staff schlepping the stuff from the far corners of the stadium.

Both CBP and Fenway are great places to see a game, but except for the grass, very different.

Our personal truck day is scheduled for 3/20 when we load up the family for a drive to Clearwater and a week with the Phillies. Yahoo! Spring and Baseball are not far away.

Forget that other holiday, its the begining of spring training. Also the fantasy baseball season will start soon. Awesome!

There's a holiday on February 14 that's NOT baseball-related?

I'm working on registering for the WSBGM's Phantasy League II. A post will be up some time next week about it.
