Chicago White Sox decide to play game, cancel fireworks show after mass shooting at July 4 parade in Highland Park

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox talked to Major League Baseball on Monday about postponing their game against the Minnesota Twins after a gunman opened fire on an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago, killing at least six people and wounding at least 30 others.

After speaking with MLB and contact with local authorities, the game was slated to begin on time. But there were storms in the area that could affect play.

The postgame fireworks show was canceled, and the team planned to observe a moment of silence before the first pitch.
