The Spring Training truck and the legend of Denny Matthews' apple box

Truck.jpgA moving truck pulled up to our temporary offices this morning. We’re not quite ready to move back to the renovated Kauffman Stadium…this was the Spring Training truck, destined for Surprise, Arizona. The event is an annual sign that baseball season is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited!

Apple Box.jpgLater, the well traveled apple box arrived. Royals Hall of Fame broadcaster Denny Matthews has packed Spring Training items in this sturdy apple box for many years…we asked Denny how many years and he said “It’s like a tree…you have to count the rings, in this case, rings of tape.” We weren’t going to get that precise, so Denny estimated somewhere over 20 years. So, if you have some packing to do, find a reliable apple box!
