MN Twins Winter Caravan coming to Wadena, Jan. 23!
The 54th Minnesota Twins Caravan is coming to Wadena! They will be stopping at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary School on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Featured on the caravan will be pitcher Glen Perkins, infielder Brian Dozier, former Twin and current coach Tom Brunansky, former Twin and current broadcaster Dan Gladden and mascot, T.C. Bear. The event is free and open to the general public.
KWAD/KNSP Radio of Wadena will be co-hosting this event.
“KWAD/KNSP have carried the Twins games on the air for more than 50 years. To get the opportunity to see current and former players will be a thrill for people of all ages. We are excited to have the Twins Caravan back in Wadena,” said Rick Youngbauer, KWAD/KNSP/KKWS general manager, who coordinates the details of the Wadena caravan visit.
WDC Schools encourages students, staff, Wadena residents and neighboring communities to come and show their Twins spirit at this event, which will be held in the WDC Elementary Gymnasium.
“We want to give the Twins Caravan a warm welcome to Wadena and be an awesome host,” said Dana Pavek, WDC communications coordinator/youth community education coordinator.
The Twins Winter Caravan features stops in more than 50 communities throughout Twins Territory between Jan. 13 and Jan. 23. Tours like the Twins Winter Caravan are rare in professional sports, with most major league baseball teams waiting until spring training to come together for the first time. The Twins Winter Caravan is one of the longest-running and most extensive off-season team caravans in professional sports, according to the Minnesota Twins official website.
The Twins Caravan last visited Wadena in 2011, when Twins pitchers Matt Capps and Brian Duensing, Twins television broadcaster/Staples native Dick Bremer, and T.C. Bear delighted the audience with their program at WDC Elementary.
