He's such a Twin: Mauer to be a Dad, twice


It figures, doesn't it?

Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer is going to be a father. And the word is his wife Maddie is pregnant with twins.

Mauer tells the Pioneer Press "Everything so far is good" and it's too soon to know if the twins are boys or girls.

The Twitterverse exploded after the news broke, the Pioneer Press noted.

A Twins staffer had confirmed things on Twitter:

How many plays on words are there for this team name/parenthood coincidence? We'll soon find out, as this exchange between a Twins blogger and the staffer suggests.
