The Twins Winter Caravan visited Rochester on Wednesday, January 21 at the Kahler Apache hotel. Brian Duensing, Brian Dozier, Phil Hughes, Jack Morris and Dick Bremer all made the trip down to Rochester.
The event started off with a 2014 Twins highlight video that assessed each player individually. The video was interesting, but it got a bit long after a while. It did a great job in showing the talent that our farm system has! Following the video, Dick Bremer started a round of Q&A with each of the Twins’ members. Each answered Bremer’s questions, and then answered any questions that the audience had for them.
After some raffle prizes were given away, we were able to get in line for autographs.
Brian Dozier signed a ball that I had originally caught on the fly when he hit it during batting practice at Hammond Stadium on March 6th during spring training. The rest of them signed baseball cards that I brought with. Here’s a picture of everything signed:
This is always a pretty short entry, but I still enjoy putting it together for each caravan. As far as I know, Morris, Duensing and Dozier had been on plenty of Caravans in years past. This year, however, was Phil Hughes’ first time taking part in one. It was nice to get to see some of the players before Spring Training gets underway. Go Twins!
