SAN DIEGO (AP) — Winning the AL MVP Award was one thing. Gracing the cover of the video game "MLB 10 The Show" is a whole new experience for Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer.

Mauer donned a skintight, high-tech suit dotted with dozens of sensors to have his motions recorded during a session Tuesday at Sony Computer Entertainment America's San Diego Motion Capture Studio.

The sensors were placed on all his flex points so dozens of cameras, shooting at 120 frames per second, could correctly capture his motions.

Mauer says it was weird putting on the tight suit, but otherwise he had a good time.

The game will be released March 2 for PlayStation3, PlayStation2 and PlayStation Portable.
