With multiple storms hitting the region this week, it may be hard to believe that spring isn't too far down the road.
But if there's one hint of warmer times ahead, it's that the Boston Red Sox are moving toward the 2014 season, with the team's annual Truck Day taking place last Saturday.
The event began in 2003 and involves an official send-off for the team's equipment truck, which embarks on a near 1,500-mile trek down to the Red Sox spring training facility in Fort Meyers, Florida, according to the Boston Globe.
And the event has special ties to Milford, as this was the 16th consecutive year that town native Al Hartz has driven the 53-foot-truck, according to the report.
"When I did this in , I was loading the truck and there was a reporter here and there, a couple of people," Hartz told MLB.com. "The new owners took over [in 2002], they organized it and here we are."
