MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s most eligible bachelor is off the market. Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer proposed to his girlfriend, Maddie Bisanz, over the weekend.

WCCO confirmed the engagement, first reported Sunday afternoon by Lindsay Guentzel, in her personal blog.

Mauer proposed in Florida, where he lives off-season. Bisanz is a nurse and a former high school classmate of Mauer’s. Both attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul. Bisanz and Mauer graduated in 2001.

The two did not date during high school, rather, they reconnected in recent years, according to Mauer’s family.

Mauer has always been private about his personal life and his dating past, although he was linked to former Miss USA Chelsea Cooley in 2006.

    Lots of under-acheiving, self-loathing slugs on here. Congrats to Joe and his family. Regardless of how he plays, he’s a stand-up guy…especially considering how most pro athletes are.

    Joe, this means were through. Another girlfriend? Fine but a wife? That’s where I draw the line. What’s Kubel up to these days?

    This story, which I did not bother to read, shows how trivial the CCO news dept. has become. And I wonder about the people that get so excited about his engagement.

  9. Darren says:

    He will be divorced so fast that Kris Humphries and Joe will be roommates.

    Gee….hope he didnt break a bone or pull a muscle popping the question.

    But Ill bet he’s probable packed in ice or taking a tub this morning at the very least from all the weekend hoopla.

      She’s a nurse. Exactly what Joe needs to live in his home. I wonder if she’s bilateral. *cough*

    Have you seen this chick? Ugh. NOT cute. Mauer do you have bilateral eye weakness? Not a nice girl either – no way! Ask any of her classmates. Who the hell cares if she went to high school with you 10 years ago. Look for a baby in August. Heard it here first.
