Joe Mauer is Really Quite Popular

Major League Baseball’s all-star rosters were announced today, and Joe Mauer did something that no Twin has done in over three decades.

↵

It was announced today that Mauer received more votes for this year’s Midsummer Classic than any other player in baseball. The last member of the Twins to do that was Rod Carew back in 1978.

Mauer will start at catcher for the American League, and his teammate Justin Morneau will start at first base.
