When Joe Mauer won his first batting title in 2006 , he was the first catcher to lead the American League (AL) in batting average. His .347 average was not only highest in the junior circuit, but it was also highest in the the majors that year, making Mauer the first catcher in baseball history to lead the majors in batting average. In 2008 , Mauer won his second batting title , tying hall of famer Ernie Lombardi for most batting championships by a catcher - just one year later (in 2009 ), Mauer broke that record and became the first and only catcher with three batting titles .

When Joe Mauer hit .365 in 2009 , it was a new single season record for highest batting average by a catcher in Major League history. Do you know what Hall of Fame catcher holds the National League record? [ Answer ]

In 2009 , Joe Mauer also led the American League in on-base percentage and slugging percentage, the first catcher in baseball history to lead his league in all three hitting percentages. Do you know what Hall of Famer third baseman was the last to lead the AL in those same three stats? [ Answer ]

Did you know that Joe Mauer is the only active baseball player who has broken up three no-hitters in the ninth inning? On May 6, 2008 , with two outs in the ninth inning, Mauer doubled off Gavin Floyd ending his no-hitter. On August 23, 2010 , with one out in the ninth inning, Mauer singled off Neftali Feliz ending his no-hitter. And, on May 24, 2013 , with one out in the ninth inning, Mauer singled off Anibal Sanchez , ending his no-hitter.

The last player to break up three gems in the ninth inning was Horace Clarke , who crushed the dreams of three pitchers in the same exact year, during the span of just a few weeks ( Jim Rooker , on June 4, 1970 ; Sonny Siebert , on June 19, 1970 ; and Joe Niekro , on July 2, 1970 ).

The Sporting News, on September 24, 2009, announced their Team of the Decade which was composed of Joe Mauer (catcher), Albert Pujols (first base), Jeff Kent (second base), Derek Jeter (shortstop), Alex Rodriguez (third base), Barry Bonds (outfield), Ichiro Suzuki (outfield), Manny Ramirez (outfield), David Ortiz (designated hitter), Randy Johnson (starting pitcher), Mariano Rivera (closer) and Joe Torre (manager).
