On Friday, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire will leave a hotel in Minot, ND, having completed this week's Twins Caravan trek. He will get into a luxory limosine bus, along with hitting coach Joe Vavra, pitchers Brian Duensing and Glen Perkins, and others with the team. They will make the long, long drive back to the Twin Cities. When Gardenhire gets off the bus, he will need to really, really rush. You see, he has to get to a groom's dinner. His son, Toby, has his wedding rehearsal on Friday night. Following the season, Toby Gardenhire became a free agent after being with the Twins since they drafted him (for the 2nd time) in 2005. He spent some time looking to see if any offers from other organizations would come in, but when they didn't, and a coaching offer came, he jumped on it. Toby Gardenhire will be the next head coach at Division III UW-Stout starting in the 2012 season.
