Joe Mauer who is a catcher for the Minnesota Twins is engaged! The very talented baseball player who has suffered some back luck with injuries, proposed to his girlfriend of 18 months Maddie Bisanz. The two actually went to Cretin-Derham Hall High School together but did not really stay in touch, they reconnected in the past couple of years and fell in love! Very cute.
He shares his excitement on the new chapter in his life:
“I was hoping for a yes, and she said yes. I’m getting to marry my best friend. We couldn’t be happier, and we’re both really excited. This year has been pretty tough for me, probably the toughest season I’ve been through, physically. Last year wasn’t easy either. I had that heel injury and things kind of trickled down from that… (Maddie’s) the one who got me through last year. If anything, she’s going to make me better. We were really close (friends) in ’09, too.”
Mauer proposed in Florida which is where he lives off season. No date has been set for the wedding and we yet to see a ring, but you know I am keeping my eyes peeled! Mauer is very private, so we don’t have many details, but I am sure the picture or two will surface soon!
