Dodgers truck gear to Spring Training

February 12th, 2016

LOS ANGELES -- As they did last year for the first time, the Dodgers sent two trucks filled with equipment and supplies to Spring Training, the second one leaving on Friday.

The trucks will arrive at Camelback Ranch-Glendale on Saturday, to be unloaded in plenty of time for next Saturday's first workout for pitchers and catchers and the start of another Spring Training.

Each truck holds 20 tons of gear, which includes computers and front-office supplies and even a 1,500-pound bobblehead of Hall of Fame manager Tom Lasorda, which normally resides at the Lasorda Italian Restaurant behind the right field pavilion at Dodger Stadium.

Game equipment such as baseballs and bats will be drop-shipped directly to Arizona by manufacturers.

For the second year, in addition to the personal items of players and employees, the trucks carry loaded pallets of drinking water and every bit of clothing every player would wear on the field.
