Twins’ Joe Mauer Collects 2,000th Career Hit

Published

Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer became part of an exclusive club Thursday night as he recorded his 2,000th career hit.

Mauer, who’s been a Twin for his entire 15-year career (since 2004), is now the third player in franchise history to collect 2,000 knocks with the club.

Mauer’s milestone occurred on a two-run single in the seventh inning off White Sox reliever Aaron Bummer.

“That was awesome,” said Mauer after the game. “It really was. Leading up to it, I didn’t think it was a big deal. But I got emotional. It was fun to see the fans, the boys at the top step and my family there, too. I’m glad I got it done tonight and it didn’t linger on too long.”

There’s no reason to think that Mauer, who turns 35 this Thursday, doesn’t have at least a few solid more years left in him. If he does stay healthy and keep putting up numbers, the Hall of Fame discussion will only intensify in years to come.
