Yeah, truck day with no manager is :what:Truck leaves today and still no manager - maybe manager by committee??
https://www.masslive.com/sports/202...s-fenway-park-for-jetblue-park-on-monday.htmlThe Red Sox still are searching for a new manager and chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom could trade Mookie Betts to the Dodgers this week.
But the show must go on.
Red Sox pitchers and catchers will officially report to spring training next Tuesday. The 53-foot equipment truck will leave Fenway Park for JetBlue Park today (Monday).
Red Sox staff will begin to load the equipment at 7 a.m. The truck will leave from Van Ness Street (near Gate D) around 12 p.m.
Per the Red Sox, the equipment includes 20,400 baseballs, 1,100 bats, 200 batting gloves, 200 batting helmets, 320 batting practice tops, 160 white game jerseys, 300 pairs of pants, 400 T-shirts, 400 pairs of socks, 20 cases of bubble gum and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.
Before the lates 90's, baseballs were used in games would get pretty scruffed up before being replaced. They weren't tossed into the crowd after after every inning nor did pitchers asked for a new ball after it was hit.I actually searched how many baseballs are used in a season several years ago. Lots.
JBJ is batting .281 with 11 HRs through this point of the simulated season. I think he'd take that over really playing and hitting .225.
