StaTuesday: The decade’s statistical leaders for Minnesota’s pro teams

With another decade coming to a close, we thought it would be fun to see who the leaders were in some major categories for all seven of Minnesota’s professional sports teams.

Some of the overall leaders might be pretty obvious (i.e. the Twins’ Joe Mauer), but we’re presenting the top five in each category, which might turn up some surprises and maybe some long-forgotten names.

Here’s the top-five leaders from the 20-teens — 2010-19 — for Minnesota’s pro franchises:
