GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Professional and personal lives have merged as Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer and his wife Maddie announce that they are expecting twins.
"Congrats to Joe & Maddie Mauer who are expecting Twins!" tweeted Dustin Morse, a member of the Twins communications team, on Wednesday night.
It seems fitting for Mauer, a St. Paul kid who was drafted by his hometown team.
Mauer signed an 8-year, $184 million contract in 2010. He has won batting titles and an MVP.
He and Maddie Mauer married this past offseason.
