Published by Skybox Press, this exclusive 72-page book features hundreds of pictures from Minnesota Twins and Star Tribune photographers – including some iconic Mauer images and a selection of first-run, behind-the-scenes photos. “A Twin for the Ages” also contains reflections from teammates, coaches and other sports figures, such as Justin Morneau, Rod Carew, Ron Gardenhire, Mark Rosen and more.

Together, these words and portraits beautifully illustrate Joe’s baseball career, from Cretin-Derham Hall High School to his final Major League game and June 15 number retirement ceremony.

The book is $35, with net proceeds to benefit the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, whose stated mission is to "enrich local and regional communities by providing resources for the healthy development of children and families through an association with baseball, softball and the Minnesota Twins."
