The Minnesota Wild are counting down the days until they drop the puck to start the season.
The Twins are doing the same, with the start of their annual caravan today.
Manager Ron Gardenhire, new bench coach Terry Steinbach, and shortstop Brian Dozier started out their trek this morning in Minneapolis.
The group traveled to Northfield and Owatonna before ending up in town at the Kato Ballroom this evening.
Television play–by–play announcer Dick Bremer emceed the program.
The team may have struggled the last couple of years, but Gardie and the guys are ready to improve with a fresh start.
The caravan heads to Steinbach's hometown of New Ulm tomorrow before traveling to Sleepy Eye, WorthingtonFalls.
