Twins Caravan comes to SE
- We're going to win Twins, we're going to score!
We're going to win, Twins, watch that baseball soar!
Baseball season must be right around the corner as the Minnesota Twins' 53rd annual Winter Caravan made a stop at Sleepy Eye Public School (SEPS) on Tuesday.
The presentation was closed to the general public, but St. Mary's and St. John's elementary students also attended the event.
Manager Ron Gardenhire, new bench coach Terry Steinbach, and shortstop Brian Dozier started out their trek Tuesday morning beginning in New Ulm before stopping at Sleepy Eye Public School.
Television play–by–play announcer Dick Bremer emceed the program.
After a brief history of the Twins, Bremer handed the microphone to short-stop Brian Dozier who talked about his experiences as a first year major leaguer.
New Ulm native Terry Steinbach spoke about his experiences of not only playing major league ball, but also his new position in 2013, as bench coach.
General manager Ron Gardenhire spoke to the students about his experience as a former player and now general manager.
The Twins' Caravan opened the floor to questions from students and in turn asked the students questions for a chance to win autographed memorabilia.
The Twins Winter Caravan is one of the longest running and most extensive off season team caravans in professional sports.
The Winter Caravan features stops in nearly 50 communities throughout Twins Territory between Monday, Jan. 14 and Thursday, Jan. 24.
