Twins Winter Caravan

The 2017 Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Twins Winter Caravan stops in more than 40 communities throughout Twins Territory between Monday, January 16 and Wednesday, January 25.

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 and Kris Atteberry.
