Each year, around this time, moving day comes along. It is the day when Phillies equipment manager Dan O'Rourke and his staff pack up one huge trailer with everything the Phillies will need to call Clearwater, Florida home for 6 or 7 weeks during spring training.
Every season, I enjoy glancing over the list of what O'Rourke and the team take with them. So, courtesy of Scott Lauber and The News Journal, here is a list of many of the items that make the trip to Florida.
12 cases of sunflower seeds
20 coolers and one half pallet of sports drink mix
350 pairs of shorts
450 pairs of socks
600 pairs of pants
600 ball caps
200 fleece tops
10,000 12 oz. cups
150 pairs of batting gloves
They also take along hundreds of pieces of memorabilia to be auctioned off at the FanFest charity event at Bright House Field on Feburary 20th.
