Orioles equipment trucks embark on 1,000-mile journey to Ed Smith Stadium

Earlier today, Von Paris Moving & Storage trucks carrying Orioles equipment departed from Oriole Park, making their way to Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota in preparation for the 2021 Spring Training season.

Orioles staff have gone above and beyond to implement health and safety protocols as they packed and loaded equipment for departure. In addition to wearing masks and gloves at all times, the crew utilized sanitizing stations throughout the clubhouse and worked in staggered shifts to ensure proper social distancing. Upon arriving at Ed Smith Stadium, a specialized staff led by the Orioles Athletic Trainers will unload, clean, and sanitize equipment before it enters the facility.

The trucks will travel 1,000 miles before arriving at the Orioles’ Spring Training home later this week. Von Paris Moving & Storage has been the official mover of the Orioles since 1991.
