Read a bio of Joe Mauer and you’ll be stunned by what you see. Not the part about his Major League career—that part makes sense, especially after you see what he did at the prep level. Mauer is a phenom that struck out just once through four years of high school. Once. His batting average was above .500 every season. He hit .605 his senior season. Not only that, but he was named Gatorade’s National Player of the Year in baseball, but also football. He turned down a football scholarship from Florida State University and became the No. 1 overall pick by the Minnesota Twins in the 2001 draft. Now you can own a piece of the wonder kid with FansEdge.com and its array of Joe Mauer jerseys and apparel, plus plenty of other Minnesota Twins apparel and merchandise to select from.
It didn’t take long for Mauer to make his way up to the Bigs. He hit .294 in his first full season and then broke through as a forever All Star by winning the first of three batting titles—the first time a catcher had ever accomplished the feat. He was the 2009 AL MVP. He’s now been to four All Star Games, collected three Gold Glove Awards and four Silver Slugger Awards. Signing a long term contract was the next step in being at Target Field and in the Twin Cities for the rest of his playing career. As the hometown hero for the state of Minnesota, Mauer has taken being a Midwesterner to the next level.
