Minnesota Twins unload equipment truck

Published: Updated:

LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Minnesota Twins team officials are unloading the equipment truck Wednesday, gearing up for spring training.

About 36,000 pounds of gear made the 1700 mile journey from Minnesota to Southwest Florida.

On board the truck is everything the team needs for spring training, including more than 10,000 baseballs, 600 bats, 600 jackets and much more. Some personal items were on board too, like golf clubs.

The Century Link Sports Complex, which includes Hammond Stadium where the Twins play, just underwent a $48 million renovation.

You can see the improvement for yourself at a special open house event on Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Pitchers and catchers also report on Sunday. The Twins first game is March 4.
