Joe Mauer '01 Named to the National Baseball Hall of Fame

January 26, 2024

Congratulations to Joe Mauer '01, who was named to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot on January 22, 2024. 

The Cretin-Derham Hall community is proud to call him an outstanding Raider, a legendary Minnesota Twin, and now a Hall of Famer!  His athleticism, leadership, and heart - both on and off the field - have earned him this distinctive honor.  Fun fact: CDH is one of a very small group of schools that have two alumni selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot. Mauer joins Paul Molitor '74 with this distinction.
