Twins catcher hits home runs on and off the field Saturday

Twins catcher, Kurt Suzuki went to his second job of the day after his game against the Cubs. Suzuki showed up at Caribou Coffee in Minneapolis to make a few lattes and hit a home run with fans.

"He's a really nice guy off the field and he's an all-star I really like him he's one of my favorite Twins players." Fan Zach Carlson

He surprised fans with tickets, signed autographs and even took selfies with those who packed the little shop just to see him.

The off-the-field appearance is Suzuki's second this year, he does it for local fans and to support cancer survivors in Maui. It's a part of his life's work with the Kurt Suzuki foundation.

"This is just something small and ultimately you want them to get cured and healthy." Kurt Suzuki said.

To have someone as kind, generous and humble as Suzuki with the Twins is something fans don't seem to take for granted.

"We're very lucky." Fan Nick Crimmins said.

The star catcher says he's pretty lucky too.

"That's very humbling you know? You play this game because you love it and obviously you're fortunate enough to do, making a living out of it and support your family with it. & it never gets old to hear people tell you you're doing well or stuff like that it's pretty special." Suzuki said.
