Padres equipment trucks are heading out to Arizona for Spring Training tomorrow. The departure of these trucks from teams' home facilities has become a fun little event for baseball fans to look forward to each year in anticipation of the start of Spring Training. Somewhere along the way fans and teams started referring to this as Truck Day, and in recent years the Padres have taken the opportunity to get fans to the ballpark and get them excited for the season.
This year is no different. The Padres are inviting fans to come out to Petco Park tomorrow morning to see the trucks off in a Truck Day pep rally of sorts, as well as give them a chance to win tickets to Padres Opening Day. They've been promoting this pep rally all day today on social media, especially Snapchat, where they've posted lots of videos of the truck getting prepped for tomorrow.
Of course, if you don't have Snapchat, you can watch some film of said truck prep over on Twitter.

And if you don't win those Opening Day tickets, fear not! Because it just so happens that Padres single game tickets also go on sale tomorrow at 10am! Funny how the timing works out, huh? So if you're already at the ballpark for the Truck Day sendoff, you can just mosey on over to the Petco Park box office to buy tickets for Opening Day, or for any other regular season game in 2016. Sweet!
