The Minnesota Twins today announced plans for the club's 54th annual Twins Winter Caravan. The 2014 Twins Winter Caravan features stops in more than 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, Dick Bremer, Dan Gladden and Cory Provus.
Preliminary 2014 Twins Winter Caravan routes and personalities are on the following page (schedule and players are subject to change). Specific times and locations within those communities will be announced in the coming weeks on www.twinsbaseball.com/caravan.
