Minnesota Twins to retire Joe Mauer's number

The Minnesota Twins will honor one of the team's all-time greats this summer by retiring his uniform number.

Joe Mauer's number 7 will be retired in a pregame ceremony at Target Field on June 15.

Mauer, a Minnesota-native, spent all 15 years of his career with the Twins before retiring in 2018.

The Twins declared June 15 "Joe Mauer Day." The first 20,000 fans in attendance at the game will receive a special No. 7 baseball cap.

Mauer is the eighth Twins player to have his number retired by the organization.
