‘There’s more important things than the game’: Alex Cora, Red Sox understand postponing game vs. Twins after fatal shooting of Daunte Wright

On Sunday evening, as protests broke out around Minneapolis following the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright by a police officer, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said he wondered if Monday’s game in Minnesota would be postponed.

Still, the Red Sox gathered at the Twins’ Target Field and went through their pre-game routine. Shortly before the first pitch was scheduled, however, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli informed Cora that the game had been called off.

“We don’t have too many details as far as everything, but it was one of those that everybody understood the decision and now we’re in the hotel and waiting to hear from MLB and the Twins to see what’s next as far as the series,” Cora told reporters via Zoom.
