Overview

"Elvis meets Elmore Leonard on the way to Red Sox Spring Training." - Adam Pachter, Editor of Fenway Fiction.

In Major League cities across the country, the departure of the equipment truck from the ballpark headed for spring training has become an annual rite of spring, and nowhere is this more true than in Boston, where "Truck Day" has become an unofficial holiday.

But what would happen if a fanatic Red Sox fan and his two nephews became trapped in the back of the truck just before the door slammed shut and it began its 1487-mile journey to Fort Myers?

Aside from the kidnappings, the car chase, an Elvis impersonator, some hungry alligators, and a few other surprises, the trip itself is relatively uneventful.

A charming and hilarious tale that is sure to delight Red Sox and baseball fans of all ages as well as fans of Florida Fiction.
