It is the winter day most people in New England love to talk about: truck day.

Crews loaded up the trucks outside of Fenway Park with equipment to take to spring training in Fort Myers, Florida on Wednesday. 

More than 20,000 baseballs, 1,000 thousand bats and 60 cases of sunflower seeds will make the trip. 

Red Sox fans lined up on Wednesday, braving the snow to support their team. 

The official start of spring training is Feb. 29, when the Red Sox take on some of the local college teams.
