The Images of Spring (Including the Elusive Beard of Mauer)
One of my favorite things about the beginning of Spring Training is the images we get along with. Between seeing favorite players back in action or getting that exciting first look at offseason additions, this is something to look forward to. The time has arrived.
We’ve all heard that Mauer had grown a beard, but we didn’t get to see it until yesterday.
More pictures have come today showing Mauer having shaved his beard. It’s sad. I think it fit him.
We have pictures of 2 of the newcomers, Hudson and Hardy, as they have reported early.
We have pictures of Liriano, Nathan, and Neshek, and a picture of Perkins, Slowey and Mike Maroth, a pitcher the Twins signed to a minor league deal this offseason.
