The Minnesota Twins have launched their 2014 Winter Caravan.
The 54th annual Twins Winter Caravan kicked off Monday. The caravan features stops in more than 50 communities in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin through Jan. 23.
The Twins Winter Caravan is one of the longest running and most extensive offseason team caravans in pro sports. The tour features teams of current and former Twins players visiting schools, hospitals, corporations and service clubs during the day with a "hot stove" program each evening.
It's six weeks until the Twins' first official workout of spring training.
