UMass Boston Baseball Team Clinics
Each Sunday in February, the UMass Boston Baseball Team will be holding clinics. Clinics will focus on improving fundamental hitting and pitching skills.

Pitchers will focus on grip, release point, follow through, balance, and stride to improve control. The clinic will incorporate many of the same drills used by the UMass Boston Baseball team.

Red Sox Truck Day
It sure beats looking for groundhogs. The sign that spring is approaching in Boston is "Truck Day." On this day, the Red Sox moving van is loaded and departs Fenway Park for the 1,467-mile, 3-day journey to Fort Myers, Florida.

The Globe reports that in the past, the 18-wheeler departure has been followed by a procession of Fenway ambassadors, Red Sox staff, and Wally the Green Monster tossing gifts to fans from a flat-bed truck. Perhaps they'll do the same this year.
