The North Caravan has made stops in Cameron, Lincoln, and Omaha. The trip concludes this afternoon with visits to Maryville and St. Joseph. Alex Gordon and Willie Bloomquist are having a great time on the trip. Here, Alex flipped his nameplate to the blank side and gave his teammate a good-natured ribbing. Sluggerrr is also on the trip.
