Joe Mauer and his Twin Baby Girls!
Okay, yeah I'm a little behind on my reporting skills, but just to update the blogging world; Twins player Joe Mauer is celebrating the birth of his twin girls, Maren and Emily. Joe was on paternity leave for a bit, which is relatively new for Major League Baseball. Since 2011, players can take up to three days’ leave. However, I looked it up and studies show that paid paternity leave of any length is rare in the United States, and even when it’s offered some new fathers don’t take advantage of it. We are so glad Joe took advantage of it and got to spend some time with his new babies. Congrats to Joe and Maddie!
