Twins Caravan comes to Southeast Minnesota

OWATONNA, Minn. (KTTC) -- It may not have looked or felt like baseball season outside on Wednesday, but Twins fans are gearing up. The caravan made a stop this morning in Owatonna, just one of the nearly 60 communities the Twins are visiting.

Tony Villarreal told us he skipped school for one reason.

"So I could see the Twins Players," exclaimed Villarreal.

The Twins, a team devoted to making sure their fans know just how much they care.

"We get so much love from the fans during the season, it's nice to come out and give back," said Infielder, Trevor Plouffe.

The Twins Caravan is unique in the sense that it's the longest running and most extensive  in all of professional sports.  Ploufee told us it's special for the kids.

"Growing up I would have loved if the Dodgers would have done something like that in the LA area. I never got to see them up close and personal like some of these kids are getting to see us," said Plouffe.

Villarreal may not have met his favorite player, Joe Mauer but he met many others.  Glen Perkins, Ben Revere and Twins legend Tony Oliva were just a few of those in attendance.
