    Minnesota Twins Caravan coming to Des Moines

    Heard this the other day and thought I would share with any Twins fans. Monday (1/31/11) at 7 Flags Event Center the Twins 2011 Caravan will come to Des Moines. Scheduled to appear are 3rd Baseman Danny Valencia, Catcher Drew Butera and 87/91 World Series team member Gene Larkin (Remember Game 7 - 11th Inning), FSN's Dick Bremer and TC Bear. Doors open @ 6:00 and the program starts 6:30. Here's some more info - http://www.1700thechamp.com/Article.asp?id=2090324.


    Trivia - What Twins Member of the 1991 World Series Team was born in Des Moines?

    Kevin Tapani.


    I'm really hoping to make it down to this Caravan. I missed them last year when they were in Cedar Falls.

    Re: Minnesota Twins Caravan coming to Des Moines

    Good Job out of you! "Taps" was a solid pitcher for the Twins (fits the mold of Twins pitchers of late - good enough to beat the bad teams, but can't quite get over the hump against the good teams... i.e. see our record vs. the Yanks, Red Sox and Angles)

    I'm looking forward to it myself - never been to a carvan. The "Twins Fest" is going on this weekend up North - From what I've read and heard it's a good time for "Twins Fanatics"

    I'm excited! Valencia is awesome. Too bad Jack Morris wouldn't be there my dad would love that.

    They were at Mason City either Monday or Tuesday this week (I can't remember which).
