ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Twins will retire Joe Mauer's No. 7 jersey next season, making a swift move to honor the homegrown player and six-time All-Star who recently retired after a 15-year major league career .

The Twins surprised Mauer with the announcement on Tuesday, while his accomplishments were celebrated at an all-student assembly at his alma mater Cretin-Derham Hall High School.

"I enjoyed putting the uniform on every day and being able to put on the Twins uniform, being at home, meant more to me than you'll know," Mauer said. "When I take my kids to a game and see No. 7 up there, it'll probably put a smile on my face every time I see it."
