Very nice gesture from the Mauerses! Wish them the best and also that Joe will turn on a few more pitches next year.
Nice to read an article about good instead of all the selfishness that seems top permeate the headlines. Thanks, Joe. That was refreshing.
Class Act Joe...he is an awesome representative of what sets Minnesota sports figures apart from the rest of the country. The Twins so SO much in the community and it does not stop with the players. Hrbek, Molitor and even Winfield are still key in charities across the state.
To all the naysayers about professional athletes, this is one of the good things players and the professional sports leagues do for our communities. Those that are opposed to a Vikings Stadium and keeping them here, these are the types of things that would go away too. Thanks Joe for giving back to the community!!
Very cool, I Love this GUY!!! Class Act says it all.
I'll bet the kids will really love this place!
My son recently had surgery at Gillette and spent a several days there. I hope no one underestimates the importance of things like this. Not just from sports hero like Joe, but from ordinary people. The volunteers who plan evening activites, to those how give to the Ronald MacDonald Space with in Gillette. It really helps during an otherwise difficult experience. Thanks Joe and the future Mrs Mauer. I know there will be a lot of families very grateful to you!
Great story. Spent the better part of two years there in 1972 and 1973. Rough time, buts lots of caring people. As I recall, there was a nurse there with the last name Mauer. Very special.
mnniceguy....In terms of seriousness as a baseball player, sure bet first vote Hall of Famer having a great year. Thanks Joe!
