Well it’s official, and soon we will all be greeting two new Minnesota twins. No, our baseball team is not trading for a pitcher and an outfielder, but Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, are indeed expecting twins.

The Twins’ media relations director, Dustin Morse, made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday night. It feels like fate that after being born in St. Paul, growing up a Twins fan, and then being drafted as the number one overall pick to his home team in 2001, that our favorite All-Star catcher would himself help bring twins into the world.
