Spring Training Equipment Truck Day at Miller Park Means Baseball Is Right Around the Corner
This has been an especially brutal winter in Milwaukee, there is no getting around that. One sign that Old Man Winter is on his way out is the annual packing of the Brewers equipment truck for Spring Training.
What was once a simple job, is now an event. An event that is the unofficial start to Spring Training and an event that has everyone thinking Brewers baseball. Brewers Director of Clubhouse Operations Tony Migliaccio and his staff have planned this day for months, working on inventory of equipment and organizing all the gear to make sure today’s pack goes without a hitch.
The truck left Miller Park today at 3 p.m., packed full with everything the Brewers will need to run the operation at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix. The truck is scheduled to arrive in Phoenix on Sunday and will be unpacked Monday. Pitchers and catchers report to camp Saturday, February 15 and the first official workout is Monday, February 17. Soon enough, the pictures on this blog and the rest of Brewers.com will be showing Brewers players at camp, working out. Green grass and sunshine is just around the corner.
