We missed Nationals Truck Day or Moving Day (or whatever they're calling it) at Nationals Park Monday afternoon, unfortunately. Indeed, according to the press release from the team, Nats equipment managers today loaded up a truck with some 30,000 pounds of equipment, 600 bats, and 14,000+ baseballs (several dozen recently acquired in the Justin Maxwell trade to the Yankees) and hit the road for Space Coast Stadium in Viera, FL.
An anonymous source provided the above video footage of the Nationals moving truck (apparently overloaded by boxes and boxes of Mike Rizzo's Tommy Bahama shirts) as it attempted to depart and begin the 869 mile trek to Florida. Poor donkey.
Memo to the Nats: if you're looking to borrow offseason "events" like Truck Day from the Red Sox, might we suggest you and MASN get together and lift an event your fans could get behind, like a televised/streamed Town Hall Meeting? Here's another freebie: you could call it: "NatsTown Hall Meeting". Get it? Maybe next year.
Anyway, the Nats' JK Moving & Storage truck is rolling south, expected to arrive on Wednesday. Spring is in the air!
