Joe Mauer, Our All-Star

Being the avid Minnesota Twins fan my son is, I was interrupted this afternoon from my stitching/finishing to sew an all-star patch on his Minnesota Twins Joe Mauer jersey. Joe Mauer was elected by the people to be the starting catcher in the All-Star Game this coming Tuesday which will be at Yankee Stadium in New York.

You see, Joe is not just our hometown hero, we have a little bit of a connection. My youngest brother, Gene, was his little league coach.

Go Joe!

Hey, Jill, the Twins manager is from Okmulgee! I worked with his dad for many years at the college. The city named a street for him.
