Minnesota Twins Winter Caravan: Fergus Falls Edition

Just a quick note to say that this morning I braved the -27F cold of Fergus Falls, MN to attend the 49th annual edition of the Minnesota Twins Winter Caravan.  I believe the first caravan I ever went to was 2001 (the “Get To Know ‘Em” campaign), and I have attended each year since.

Fergus Falls was the first stop of the day for the Twins this time and thus they came to the local Applebees restaurant for a pancake breakfast.  Manager Ron Gardenhire, Hitting Coach Joe Vavra, and Starting Pitcher Glen Perkins were the featured guests who cracked jokes, entertained questions, and just had a good time promoting baseball in MN.  A highlight video was also shown (always the highlight of the program!) and a prize drawing ended the program (sadly, I was not lucky today).

Overall, the FF stop was just a drop-in on the long line of the caravan, but it was still fun to just get out and get excited about Twins baseball again!!

Oh, and just because I couldn’t resist:

Can Spring Training come early enough?!

No – Spring Training can NOT come early enough and I think the caravan the Twins do is a GREAT idea!
