Just got this and could not resist posting it here. These get me fired up. And Boston’s is Friday. Each year, more and more clubs are announcing these.
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The sight of snow and cold temperatures won’t stop the Milwaukee Brewers from loading up and heading to the Arizona sunshine as Spring Training is just a few days off.
The team equipment truck will be loaded on Wednesday, February 4 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the South Dock at Miller Park. The truck
will then leave for the Brewers Spring Training home, Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report Friday, February 13, while the first full squad workout is scheduled for Wednesday, February 18. The temperature outside may be below freezing, but baseball season is right around the corner, and this is the ideal photo opportunity to show everyone that there is life on the other side of zero degrees.
In addition, the World Famous Klement’s Racing Sausages will be loaded on the truck as they travel to Arizona to prepare for their spring workouts. The Sausages plan to board the truck around 9:30 a.m.
