Joe Mauer welcomes twin girls

The Royal baby watch took over most of the media coverage in the last week but the Twins celebrated their own important birth on Wednesday morning. Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, welcomed twin girls into the world. Their daughters were given the names Emily and Maren.

The Twins were a little early as their due date wasn't until August 31st. Most twins arrive early so Joe Mauer had to be quick on his feet to get back to Minnesota. Mauer was suppose to be in the Twins line-up on Tuesday evening but he was removed at the last minute since his wife's water had broken.

Twins fans won't be able to dream of a future Mauer batting in the line-up at Target Field. Maybe Joe and Maddie can shoot for having a boy on their next baby making session. For now, congrats goes out to the Mauer's on their first children. Maybe they can be stud softball players?

Who says the girls can't break the gender barrier? They're Mauerses! (No idea which uncle could teach them to be a double play combo)
