Default Question about Spring Training in FT. Myers, FL

Question about Spring Training?

Hello group. I have a question about Spring Training in Fort Myers, FL. Specific, The Minnesota Twins.

Last year, I went down to Scottsdale, AZ in late February, the week of 19th-25th to be exact. While I was down there, I thought I would check out the Oakland Athletics practice facility because it was only 20 minutes away from where I was staying. As I was down there they had already started a full team practice where fans were able to get autographs and come in and watch. I had never been to Spring Training before, so it was a great experience!
  1. My question to the group is, Does the Minnesota Twins start practice early like this too down in Fort Myers, Florida?
  2. Does anyone know where there practice facility is?

Any info would be great!

Thank you,
Taylor

The Twins are usually a good place to go. Most fans hit the Red Sox camp which is like 2 blocks from the Twins. Sometimes there is almost no one there. The best time to go is right when the practice starts for the year. Around Feb. 20- or so if you are going for autographs

thanks

Jason
