Following the postponement of the Monday afternoon series opener because of the potential of more civil unrest in Minneapolis, it was unclear if the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox would play their scheduled Tuesday afternoon game at Target Field.
The strife-torn city, already on edge with the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd taking place less than a mile away at the Hennepin County Government Center, had to deal with more unrest following a Sunday police shooting that killed a 20-year-old Black man, Daunte Wright, about 10 miles northwest of the city in Brooklyn Center. Protests and looting broke out in Brooklyn Center after the shooting.
A 7 p.m. curfew was announced for parts of the metropolitan area for Monday. The Minnesota Wild, who play across the Mississippi River in Saint Paul, also postponed their Monday night game with the St. Louis Blues while the NBA also postponed the Minnesota Timberwolves-Brooklyn Nets game at Minneapolis' Target Center.
