BOSTON — Boston is moving seamlessly from football season to baseball season.
Dozens of fans gathered outside Fenway Park to send the truck on its way on the 1,480-mile trip to the team’s spring training home in Fort Myers.
It’s hauling an assortment of baseball equipment and supplies including more than 20,000 baseballs, 1,100 bats, 400 T-shirts, 20 cases of bubble gum and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.
The 53-foot truck is being driven for the 19th consecutive year by Milford native Al Hartz.
