Well it’s that time of year again, and the Minnesota Twins Caravan is scheduled to visit more than 50 communities across Minnesota, Iowa, and North & South Dakota during the next few weeks. Here is the info from the Twins website:
“The Minnesota Twins’ 54th annual Winter Caravan features stops in nearly 50 communities throughout Twins Territory between Monday, Jan. 13 and Thursday, Jan. 23. The Twins Winter Caravan is one of the longest running and most extensive offseason team caravans in professional sports. It features teams of current and former players visiting schools, hospitals, corporations and service clubs during the day with a traditional “hot stove” program each evening.
Twins Winter Caravan tours will be led by members of the Treasure Island Baseball Network and Fox Sports North broadcast teams, including Bert Blyleven, Dan Gladden, Cory Provus and Dick Bremer.
Preliminary 2014 Twins Winter Caravan routes and personalities are below (schedule and players are subject to change). Specific times and locations will be announced right here in the coming weeks.”
2014 Twins Winter Caravan Schedule
The Twins Caravan is something that’s definitely worth checking out. Last year I went to the caravan when it stopped in Rochester. If you want to see what the Twins Caravan is typically like, then I suggest checking out the entry I wrote from last year’s event. The Twins haven’t had a solid performance on the field for the last few years, but they’ve always done a good job providing a positive fan experience. This year I’ll get to see Kyle Gibson, Caleb Thielbar, Tony Oliva, Paul Molitor, and Cory Provus when they stop in Rochester on January 14th. I’ll post an entry about that sometime afterwards.
