The Twins have announced their plans to make up for the game that was cancelled yesterday due to concerns about both safety and respect in the wake of the Daunte Wright shooting.
The team has announced that the game will be played as part of a traditional double-header tomorrow, Wednesday the 14th.
Well—its a straight doubleheader, with the second game to start 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first. Its hard to call it traditional in any other sense, as both games will be seven-inning affairs. This might actually bode well for the Twins, as their starters have been stronger than the bullpen in this young season, and Kenta Maeda and Jose Berrios, the projected pitchers for tomorrow, especially.
If you had a ticket for yesterday, as I know some community members did, you will not only be eligible for credit towards a future home game, but if you bought it through the team box office, you also are eligible for two additional free weekday tickets. Season ticket holders get credit back for the game as well. While the decision to postpone the game was made inconveniently late, it does seem like the team is making an effort to make things right. If you bought your ticket through a secondary source, you will need to contact that source to discuss a refund.
If you happened to have a ticket for tomorrow’s game, you get bonus baseball, as your ticket will provide admission to both halves of the double-header, allowing to catch at least 14 innings for the price of nine. With the silly Manfredball rules, this might be the only way to see 14 innings of Twins baseball in a day this year.
The doubleheader remains scheduled for 1:10 pm, with all the games in Minnesota this week day games partially due to safety concerns around the potential outcome of the Derek Chauvin trial. If you are downtown tomorrow evening, please make sure to stay safe.
