PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — The equipment truck for the Boston Red Sox will stop in Rhode Island on its way to Florida for spring training.

The truck plans to stop Monday at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, the home of the Pawtucket Red Sox, the Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.

PawSox fans are invited to welcome the truck around 1 p.m. It’ll leave for Fort Myers, Florida about 45 minutes later.

The team’s mascots and club officials are taking part. The team says Linda Ruth Tosetti, granddaughter of Babe Ruth, plans to attend.

The Rhode Island Food Bank will be collecting non-perishable donations. Fans who bring a donation will receive a general admission ticket to opening night at McCoy on April 11.

The truck carries baseball equipment and supplies, including more than 20,000 baseballs.
