Does your chewing gum lose its flavor...

Joe Mauer batting in the 5th inning last night...


Notice anything odd about Joe's helmet?
Well, that picture is a little blurry.

Take a look from this angle:


Above the white dot, notice the little lump stuck to the top of his helmet.

I guess when you're down to your last piece of bubblegum, and it's only the 5th inning, you want it to last!




Credit for spotting the gum goes to Mrs. Mauer at the Batgirl site.

Do we know if Joe put it there or if it was a prank by a teammate?

Dear Anon,

I'm afraid it's a very common practice to store your gum in such places. During a tour of the Twins dugout during fan fest, we were shown the pipe where players usually put their gum when they went up to bat, to save it for when they were done.

Sorrowfully yours,
BG
