Joe Mauer

On this date in 2009, Joe Mauer is named the AL MVP after batting .365 with 28 home runs.

"Our bench got real quiet. Nobody said a thing.'Did you just see what I saw?' Nobody could believe it; I still can't believe it. He didn't say anything but you could tell he was mad because he started moving quicker. That's what he does when he gets mad: moves quick." - High School coach Jim O'Neill on Joe Mauer's one and only high school strikeout (222 at bats)
