Truck Day, 2009

If you are looking for a sure sign of spring, there is something more reliable than ground hogs and as welcome as the first crocus. And that is Truck Day at Fenway Park!

This is when the moving vans are loaded with the gear, exercise equipment and stuff needed for Spring Training in Fort Myers.

The Globe said it best: "Sorry Punxsutawney Phil and your six-more-weeks-of-winter prediction, but if you live in New England and are a fan of Red Sox, a sure sign of spring has arrived -- Truck Day!"

Here are some key Sox spring training dates that are just around the corner:

Feb. 12 — Reporting day for Red Sox pitchers and catchers
Feb. 14 — First workout for Red Sox pitchers and catchers
Feb. 16 — Reporting day for Red Sox positional players
Feb. 18 — First Red Sox full-squad workout
Feb. 25 — Red Sox spring training games begin
