Twins first baseman-catcher Joe Mauer retired from baseball after this past season. Now, his number 7 will also be retired.

The Twins said Tuesday they will retire Mauer’s number sometime in 2019.

It will be the ninth number retired by the club, and the first since Tom Kelly’s number 10 was retired in 2010.

Mauer spent 15 seasons in the majors – all with the Twins.
