Twins announce plans for 2017 Winter Caravan presented by Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine
The Minnesota Twins today announced plans for the club's 57th annual Twins Winter Caravan presented by Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine. The 2017 Twins Winter Caravan features stops in more than 40 communities throughout Twins Territory between Monday, Jan. 16 and Thursday, Jan. 26.
"The Minnesota Twins are proud to have Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine as the presenting sponsor of Winter Caravan," said Twins Executive Vice President of Business Development Laura Day. "Twins Caravan offers both organizations a chance to connect with communities throughout the Midwest."
The Twins Winter Caravan is one of the longest running and most extensive offseason team caravans in professional sports. It features groups 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, Cory Provus, Jack Morris and Kris Atteberry.
Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine will help bring the Twins Winter Caravan to the communities encouraging young and old athletes to enjoy their sport.
