Mauer's sweet swing

by Mike McFeely

If you haven't noticed, Joe Mauer is batting .330 for the Minnesota Twins. And he's grounded into only 2 double plays, so the derogatory nickname "Ol' 4-6-3" simply doesn't apply anymore (if, indeed, it ever did).

While I was broadcasting from Fort Myers, Fla., during spring training in February, I was able to shoot some up-close video of Mauer in the batting cage. Like Mauer or dislike Mauer, his swing is the sweetest in the game.

Enjoy it, people, and stop worrying that he's not a 40-homer, 125-RBI guy.
