Twins catcher welcomes newborn twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — You might expect nothing less from Twins catcher Joe Mauer and his pregnant wife, Maddie — newborn twins.

The ballclub says Emily and Maren Mauer arrived Wednesday morning after dad made it home to Minnesota for the births. Mauer was scratched from the Twins’ lineup Wednesday in Anaheim, Calif., so he could rush back for the debut of his twin girls.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/168Siog ) says the original due date for the twins was Aug. 31, but Mauer said recently that doctors told them the babies could arrive at any time.
