Groundhog Day

       The life of a baseball player, as glamorous as it may seem from the outside, is pretty monotonous. Considering that in the Minor Leagues you play 142 games in about 150 days, I guess that shouldn’t come as a such a surprise. The whole idea for this blog is to give insight into my daily/personal life, and today I woke up and decided that that’s exactly what I’m going to do. 

      So here’s a rundown of how my day typically goes. There might be a change here or there from day to day, but honestly, this is my life:
8:00 A.M. – The sun starts to shine through my blinds and I wake up. I grab my phone, look    at the clock, and ask myself what I’m doing up already.
8:04 A.M. – I fall back asleep.
9:15 A.M. – I wake back up, realize that I’m up for good now, and start to think about what I can cook for breakfast.

9:27 A.M. – Finally mustering up the strength to get out of bed, I walk downstairs to the kitchen. This part of my day is a little tricky. I summon my inner ninja and enter stealth mode. (I don’t want to wake my roommates)
9:49 A.M. – Two eggs, two slices of turkey bacon, hashbrowns, a bowl of cereal, and a cup of juice later I’m back in my room full as can be. (I just want to give a shoutout to Olivia, who makes an unbelievable breakfast when she is here)

10:00 A.M. – 12:45 P.M. – Now this is where the “activities” (Stepbrothers movie plug) differ from day to day. Take yesterday for example. I had some errands to run, so I borrowed Tim’s ride (a beautiful Mitsubishi Galant) and went to the mall and to SuperCuts. Today I’m using this time to write this entry and then I have to make some phone calls. As you can see, this is kind of the “get sh*t done” part of the day. 
1:00 P.M. – Another very crucial part of the day. This is when I have to decide what I’m going to eat for lunch. Yesterday was Subway, and the time before that I made a sandwich and soup at home. Typically I like to get a pretty big meal in at this time, and if you’ve read my last post, I’m fortunate enough to have some great places right by me.

2:00 P.M. – 10:30 P.M. – BASEBALL. Baseball early work, Baseball practice, Baseball game. 
11:00 P.M. – Hopefully we’ve have won, and I’m in a good mood. Usually I eat at the clubhouse, but if it’s Ham for dinner this is when I have to search for something quick to eat again. I head back with Tim to our place, and turn on the T.V.. Over the last week this is when I’ve gotten to see Kobe and the rest of the LAKESHOW dominate the Jazz. 

11:35 P.M. – I get on the phone and talk to Olivia for 63 hours before I go to sleep. 

12:35 P.M. – 1:15 A.M. – My head hits the pillow and I wonder know what I’m going to do tomorrow. 



    Trevor, we saw you play in Spring Training and we loved you. We’re hoping to see you in the dome soon, the twins could use you! Keep up the hard work and don’t lose your attitude. We could tell you really love to play ball!

    Não sei escrever em inglês, mas por um acaso eu conheci sobre sua carreira e fiquei muito contente de saber que existe um MAUER que faz um grande sucesso e ainda mais se tratando de esportes que minha família e eu amamos.

    Me chamo Marielen Mauer, sou de São Paulo/Brasil. Moro com meus pais e irmãos.

    PARABÉNSSS, pelo seu aniversário!!

    Coincidentemente temos a mesma idade e faço aniversário 21/Jun. =)

    Desejo toda sorte de bençãos para você! Que em Nome de Jesus, Deus te abençoe cada dia mais em sua vida e em sua carreira profissional.

    Quem sabe não somos parte da mesma árvore genealógica?! Será um prazer poder assistir um jogo seu e conhece-lo pessoalmente!

    Sucesso e fica com DEUS.

    9:45 PM Hit a walk off 2 run homer. Get beaten to a pulp by teammates. Feel the love.

    PS. Time for a new blog post 😉


    Hey Trevor — If you can’t think of anything to blog about or can’t find the time to do it, then how about getting some of your buddies on the team as “guest bloggers” every now and then!

    Or maybe Olivia could even give us some insight on what it is like to be with a professional ball player? It would all be interesting and it might take some of the pressure off of you 🙂

    Just a thought,
    Mary Ann (3BFC)


    When I think about your work in baseball I believe its all about matching your gifts in the form of your baseball skills with hard work and commitment. I have watched you develop for years and you never give up on you training and development. You also stay true to the value system you parents gave you and thats going to continue to serve you as you move into the big leagues. I keep track of your progess on the web and listen to games as possible. I also talk to you Dad and keep up on things. Keep it up and good luck!

    Hi Trevor –

    It was really great talking to you the other day at the season ticket holders dinner. My roommate really loved having the chance to show you his imitation of you walking up to the plate and getting ready to bat. Thanks for being a good sport about that.

    Loved reading your blog and would enjoy reading more. Have a great rest of the season.

    Thanks for the insight into your daily life. We fans really appreciate it. How do you eat dinner so late though? Lol I’d be starving during the middle of the game, but I guess that’s what sunflower seeds are for. Good luck with everything 🙂


    Plouffe! we saw you play in rochester against strassburg. We were all wearing Hawaiin shirts, and you talked with us. We were all talkin about how cool you were to legit talk with us and almost hang out. You seem very humble and understand that its all about the fans. We were sayin you’d get called up and a day later what do you know. I’m the only one on yahoo with you on my fantasy team, so good luck! Don’t forget us, we wont forget you. Comment back if you ever have time.



    Congrats Trevor,
    I am so proud of you! You deserve it all. your hard work has paid off. Miss you and love you.
    Your favorite Aunt
    Deanna 🙂
    PS I like the new walk up song.
