Joe Mauer is about the closest thing Minnesota has to royalty, so it is appropriate that he and his wife, Maddie, had twin daughters on Wednesday, one-upping Britain's Royal Couple, who had just one baby earlier this week.
Of course, William and Kate's son, who has been named George Alexander Louis, is third in line to be king of England. It is estimated his birth may add some 250 million pounds to Great Britain's economy in sales of souvenir and commemorative items.
Mauer's daughters will grow up as normal kids (whose dad, unlike other dads, makes millions of dollars a year playing baseball). They?might possibly be prom queen candidates some day at Cretin-Derham Hall.
Whatever the future for the three babies, we wish them and their parents much happiness and success.
