The romance between 2005 Miss USA Chelsea Cooley and Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer appears to be heating up.

According to a source close to the relationship, Cooley flew into the Twin Cities on Wednesday morning to enjoy the final game of the Twins' sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the team's weekend series versus the Milwaukee Brewers in Minneapolis.

Cooley, of North Carolina, reportedly enjoyed lunch with Joe's father, Jake, on Wednesday before spending time Thursday with Joe on his off-day.

The All-Star in-waiting spent Thursday afternoon participating in a celebrity charity golf tournament at Tartan Park in Oakdale.

This weekend's events could be of professional as well as personal significance for Mauer. With enough hits this weekend, Mauer could reach the .400 mark. No Major Leaguer has finished the season with a batting average above .400 since the legendary Ted Williams did in 1941.

As well, the All-Star Game rosters will soon be announced. Though Mauer is not expected to receive the automatic bid that goes to the highest vote getter at each position, he is expected to be a reserve selection for the game, to be played July 11 in Pittsburgh.

Though the Mauer and Cooley have had the opportunity to see each other less than a half-dozen times this season, this is the second time Cooley has traveled to spend time with Mauer. According to the source, Cooley flew into Kansas City to meet up with Mauer earlier this season during a Twins road trip.
