Is this Truck Day, Part II? Reverse Truck Day?
Whatever it is, it’s the latest sign baseball soon will return.
The Red Sox on Friday released a quick video on Twitter showing the famous equipment truck being unloaded outside of Fenway Park, as the organization is preparing for the relaunch of spring training in Boston after Major League Baseball’s owners and players finally came to an agreement on an abbreviated season.

The symbolism obviously stands out, as that same truck has long been seen as a sign of spring’s impending arrival and the beginning of a new baseball season. The team’s equipment apparently has been sitting in Florida since the league suspended play due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
