Minnesota Twins make a stop in the Magic City

MINOT, N.D. - The second week of the Minnesota Twins Caravan made its first stop in the Magic City.

Fan's lined up in the Dakota Square Mall to hear from current and former players, Kohl Stewart, Mitch Garver, Bert Blyleven and Dan Gladden.

Twins enthusiasts paid $5 to enter the event that went toward improving the lives of young people in the Minot community through Companions for Children.

The Twin's haven't made their way out to Minot for seven years. This was an arrival many fans have been patiently waiting for.

“We've had it on the schedule since the minute we saw it so we weren't going to miss it. Especially when you get a hall of famer coming in with Bert Blyleven. You listen to Bert and Dan Gladden all year long and stuff like that,” said Minot area Twins fan Lyle Kraft.

After fans took their seats, the Twins' panel spoke about their upcoming season and fielded questions from fans.

Then they took the time to sign autographs for those who attended the event.

Taking the time to interact with fans outside Minnesota is something the team says is important for them.

“There's a lot of support in the surrounding states. Obviously we have an affiliate in Iowa so I had a chance to play there as well. Good fan base and a lot of people travel to the cities to see us play and it's really awesome to see that,” said Twins catcher Mitch Garver.
