Minnesota Twins' game against Boston Red Sox postponed in wake of police shooting of Daunte Wright

Monday afternoon's game between the Minnesota Twins and the Boston Red Sox has been postponed due to "safety reasons" following the police shooting of Daunte Wright on Sunday night.

"Out of respect for the tragic events that occurred yesterday in Brooklyn Center, and following the additional details in this evolving situation, the Minnesota Twins have decided it is in the best interest of our fans, staff, players and community to not play today's game" the Twins said in a statement.

The decision to postpone the game was made by the Twins after consulting Major League Baseball, in addition to local and state officials.
