MINNEAPOLIS -- One of Minnesota's most eligible bachelors is off the market.

Twins catcher Joe Mauer got engaged Saturday in Florida.  He popped the question to former high school classmate Maddie Bisanz. 

"He told Teresa (Joe's Mom) and I, a week ago that he was going to do it.  He told her parents too.  We're real excited.  She's a good girl," said Joe's father Jake.

Bisanz is a nurse.  The two went to high school together at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, both graduating in 2001.  They didn't date in high school, but reconnected about a year and a half ago.

The couple's engagement was first reported Sunday afternoon by blogger Lindsay Guentzel.

A wedding date has not yet been set.
