This week's Player of the Week and signature bat are Major League catcher Joe Mauer and the Rawlings Joe Mauer Game Day Ash Wood Bat. Mauer is a Major League catcher for the Minnesota Twins and is the only catcher in the history of the Major Leagues to carry three batting titles under his belt along with winning three consecutive Gold Glove Awards. Mauer is a very well rounded athlete with accomplished high school careers in basketball and football, but ultimately he chose to go with a professional career in baseball and it's been a great choice with a lot of career highlights and accomplishments.
Mauer was the first overall pick by the Twins in the 2001 draft and since then has performed extremely well as a catcher, proving himself in 2006 by becoming the first Major League catcher to lead the Majors in batting average and becoming the first American League catcher to walk away with a batting title, with an average of .357.
We all know that Major League baseball players typically get better bats than most players, but there is an exception to that this year. Rawlings just happens to have an over abundance of big league caliber bats and they are selling them to the general public!
