Minnesota Twins Surprise Students at SEA School in Golden Valley
Students at the school of Engineering and Arts in Golden Valley had a special surprise visit on Friday.
The children jumped and cheered for Twins mascot, TC Bear as he appeared from behind a curtain. The students were equally charged to meet Twins pitcher Matt Magill and strength coach, Perry Castellano. The Twins talked to the kids about staying healthy and active. The coach also put the students through some of the same workouts he leads pitchers through on game day.
Twins talk about staying healthy and active
“It’s important to stay healthy, it’s important to stay in school, it’s important to just have fun, stay active, said Magill.
Strength coach Castellano had the children stretch their hands, fingers and back muscles.
“It’s important to get out in the community and actually show that professional athletes actually do stay active, stay in school, and emphasize how they got to a certain point,” said Castellano.
The school is taking part in the Hennepin County Step To It Challenge. The goal of the contest is to get people more active. The three schools that record the most steps win a visit by the Twins.
