Minnesota Twins outfielder Denard Span is entering his fifth MLB season. Span's good hitting, speed and ability to steal bases have made him a mainstay at the top of the Twins lineup since he was called up to the Big Leagues in 2008. Span was a key contributor to the Twins 2009 and 2010 American League Central Division championship teams, before missing a good portion of the 2011 season due to a concussion.
Fellow outfielder Ben Revere is entering his second season with the Minnesota Twins. In 2011, Revere made his mark as a result of some spectacular defensive gems and very exciting base running efforts. These plays represented the most memorable scenes from an otherwise forgettable 99-loss season for the Twins.
Friday night, per the above iFollowSports.com original video, Span spent ample time signing autographs at TwinsFest, the team’s annual winter event.
Also on Friday night, Revere was on hand to meet and interact with fans.
Revere’s friendly dealings with fans are also on display in this original iFollowSports.com clip from last summer.
