Joe Mauer National Baseball HOF Travel Packages

Congratulations, Joe Mauer, Class of 2024

Minnesota Twins legend Joe Mauer has been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Induction ceremonies are scheduled for Sunday, July 21 at 12:30 p.m. CT on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, New York. The Twins and their fans will also honor Mauer’s induction with an in-ballpark celebration prior to Minnesota’s Saturday, August 3 game vs. the Chicago White Sox at Target Field; more details will be announced at a later date.

Mauer, 40, joins Harmon Killebrew (1984), Rod Carew (1991), Kirby Puckett (2001), Bert Blyleven (2011), Jim Kaat (2022) and Tony Oliva (2022) as the seventh player to go into the Hall of Fame as a Twin, as well as the third Twin (Carew and Puckett) to be elected on the first ballot. He also becomes the 13th person in Twins/Senators franchise history (1901-present) to have a plaque in the Hall, including the Washington Senators’ Walter Johnson (1936), Clark Griffith (1946), Sam Rice (1963), Heinie Manush (1964), Goose Goslin (1968) and Bucky Harris (1975). Next summer, Mauer will join Dave Winfield (2001), Paul Molitor (2004) and Jack Morris (2018) to become the fourth St. Paul native to be enshrined into baseball’s most distinguished group.

“The Pohlad family and entire Minnesota Twins organization would like to congratulate Joe Mauer on his election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame,” Twins President & CEO Dave St. Peter said. “Few people have embodied the values and beliefs of the Minnesota Twins like Joe Mauer; from the moment his name was called on draft day in 2001, Joe has been a true hometown hero and a cornerstone of our organization. His humility, leadership, kindness and care for others, paired with his unparalleled excellence on the diamond, have made him a role model for generations of youth across our region.

“Today is a special day – for the Mauer family, for the Twins and for all of Twins Territory.”
