For Joe Mauer, being from Minnesota means this isn't goodbye

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Yes, the narrative of Joe Mauer's career was missing a championship chapter. That plotline stalled for a few years while the star was set back by injuries.

Still, this story of the Minnesota native with the smooth left-handed swing who played for the Twins the entire time sure was made for a movie.

Six weeks after Mauer symbolically donned his catcher's gear for one last crouch behind the plate in the final inning of the season , Mauer formalized his goodbye to the game at a tear-filled-yet-cheerful news conference to wrap up a 15-year major league career at age 35.
