MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Twins, in partnership with Mall of America, today announced that Thursday, August 10 (Twins versus Blue Jays; 7:10 p.m.) will be "Joe Mauer Sideburn Night" in honor of the Minnesota Twins All-Star catcher.

To celebrate Mall of America's 14th birthday, the first 10,000 fans through the gates will receive replica Joe Mauer's sideburns. The synthetic-hair sideburns have double-sided tape that will allow fans to share Mauer's trademark look, which also was highlighted in a recent Twins Territory television commercial.

"We are excited to partner with Mall of America on this fun promotion celebrating Twins catcher Joe Mauer and his signature feature," said Twins vice president of marketing Patrick Klinger. Mauer participated in the 77th Annual All-Star game on July 11 at Pittsburgh's PNC Park and currently leads the Major Leagues with his .375 batting average.
