Twins fans love Joe Mauer-and with good reason: he can hit; he can field; and he's proud to call St. Paul his hometown. This supremely gifted graduate of Cretin-Derham Hall was a three-sport prep star, but when the local MLB club made him the No. 1 pick in the 2001 draft, Mauer committed himself to his first love-baseball. The Twins' decision looks brilliant; Mauer has already won three AL batting titles, two Gold Gloves, and the 2009 MVP Award. This special commemorative book celebrates the career of Minnesota's young baseball star through entertaining stories-direct from the Star Tribune sports pages-and stunning color photography. It's a must-have keepsake that every Mauer fan is sure to treasure.
