The pride that Minnesota felt today, it was honestly contagious. Once the Minnesota Twins shared the news, it seemed like our state got a little bit happier. People were sharing memories and special moments that they had at games or photos with Joe himself. It was an amazing site to watch on social media as we all went down memory lane for a few moments with one of our favorite Minnesota Twins players.
One of the posts that helped that journey today was put up by the Minnesota Twins. Joe has his catcher's glove up and in that stance and just above that are some of his biggest moments.
