Truck "Outta Here"

9:11 a.m. today and the truck is “Outta Here!”, here being Bright House Networks Field in sunny Clearwater.

The equipment truck that left Citizens Bank Park on Thursday a.m. was here early today and emptied quickly by a 15-person crew.  Now, the clubhouse crew is organizing the equipment room and clubhouse.  Stacks of bats are piled in the middle of the clubhouse.  A total of 62 players will be in camp with pitchers and catchers working out for the first time on Thursday.

Appreciate the responses to the Packing Time blog.  Bill, we looked but you weren’t on the truck as you had wished.

A question was raised about my status.  I’m headed toward semi-retirement sometime after spring training has ended.  Which creates bad news and good news for readers….I’ll still be blogging through spring training.

Another reader asked about Philly radio stations broadcasting from spring training.  John Brazer, our Director of Publicity, has a gaggle of stations coming down: WMGK, (7 p.m. to midnight), February 26-27-28 . . . WPHI (calling in during the day), Feb. 29 and March 3 . . . WPEN (12 noon-3 p.m.), March 6-7 . . .  WPEN (3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), March 12-13 . . .  WXTU (6 a.m. to 10 a.m.), March 14 . . .  WIP (call ins during 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. show), March 17 . . . WMMR (7 p.m. to midnight), March 17-18 . . . WPHT (Michael Smerconish, 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.), March 21.

A complete listing of the spring training broadcasts, including 10 online broadcasts on this site, is available in the Schedule section of the home page.
