As the team gets ready to head south to Fort Myers, FL for Spring Training next month, several players and team icons fanned out across Minnesota for the team's annual Winter Caravan.

One of the caravan legs included a stop to visit kids at Mayo Clinic's St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester. The Rochester visit featured relief pitcher and Randolph, MN native Caleb Thielbar, utility player Willi Castro, Twins legend and broadcaster Dan Gladden and T.C. Bear.
