As a sure sign that this winter will, in fact, end… The equipment truck for the Boston Red Sox left for Florida yesterday. On it side the banner read “FIRST STOP FORT MYERS, NEXT STOP THE SERIES.”
The first Spring Training games will be on Saturday, February 26 against the Boston College Eagles (1:05 PM) and the Northeastern University Huskies (6:00 PM).
Opening day at Fenway Park will be on Friday, April 8 at 2:05 PM against the New York Yankees.
With the “boys of summer” headed into spring training, the real thing (spring) cannot be far away…
