The celebration tour that the U.S. men's Olympic curling team has been on since winning gold in PyeongChang just keeps on going. 

They were in St. Paul earlier this week to drop the ceremonial puck before the Wild played the Kings, and now they'll be standing near the pitcher's mound at Target Field to throw out the first pitch before the Twins take on the Mariners in their home opener April 5. 

They were also invited to an NHL Stadium Series outdoor game earlier this month for some pregame festivities, which included rolling a rock to center ice while the packed crowd went wild.
