Twins' Joe Mauer, wife expecting twins

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins for a Twin.

The Minnesota Twins say All-Star catcher Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, are expecting twins.

Media relations director Dustin Morse made the announcement for Mauer through twitter. The couple married in December.

It's only fitting for Mauer, born in St. Paul and cheered for the Twins as a boy, then drafted No. 1 overall by his hometown team in 2001. He developed into a three-time batting champion, an AL MVP and one of the best catchers in the game while playing in front of his family, who raised him just a few miles down the road from Target Field.

Pretty soon he'll have to get tickets for two more.
