It’s the middle of winter and we have all been hibernating as much as possible from the cold weather. Yet, it’s only about a month before the Minnesota Twins officially arrive at Spring Training on February 13 with pitchers and catchers reporting. The rest of the players report on February 17. However, if you’re looking for a baseball fix, the Twins have some events to get you ready for the upcoming season.
The first is Twinsfest which will be held at Target Field on January 27-29 and will feature around 60 current, former and future Twins players. There will be many activities such as autographs, photo opportunities and sports memorabilia and card shows.
One of the new activities at Twinsfest will be a taproom located in the Metropolitan Club. It will feature the Twinsfest first ever beer garden with craft beers, pub games, yard games and classic arcade games. It is being advertised as a place for friends and family to meet.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids 14 and under. Metro Transit will be providing free rides to Twinsfest. You can find out more information and or to purchase tickets by following this link.
The next Twins event is the annual Twins Caravan. The Twins Caravan will run from January 16 to January 26. It will feature more than 40 stops by Twins players and other Twins personnel at schools, hospitals, service clubs and corporations during the day and a stop in the evenings that will feature a program.
I will say this again. I would recommend fans to check out a Twins Caravan stop since it allows fans to interact with the players and to get free autographs. If you would like more information, go to this link.
I know it’s hard to think about baseball with the cold of winter upon us. However, I believe that attending either Twinsfest or a Twins caravan stop will put you in the mood for the summer and baseball.
