Joe Mauer (40) has been inducted into the Hall of Fame for the 38th time in the history of the Minnesota Twins.
Minnesota announced on the 28th (Korean time) that Mauer was inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.
Mauer was selected by Minnesota with the 1st overall pick in the 2001 draft. Mauer, who made his Minnesota debut in 2004, played for the same team for 15 years. 메이저사이트
Mauer dominated the league with his outstanding hitting and catcher talent for the first decade of his debut, then spent the next five years as a first baseman.
He played in 1,858 games in his career, recording a batting average of 0.306 with 2,123 hits, 143 homers, and 923 RBIs, OPS.827. He won the batting title three times, the most ever for a catcher, and won MVP in 2009. He appeared in the All-Star Game six times, and won the Silver Slugger and Gold Glove five times and three times, respectively.
Minnesota Twins president Dave St. Peter said, “I think Joe Mauer could be inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame. The pundits think so. The question is, will he be in his first year of Hall of Fame eligibility?” Whether or not. I hope that being inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame this time will give strength to the press corps vote to be held in December this year.”
Mauer, who retired in 2018, aims to enter the Major League Hall of Fame in January 2024 through voting.
