The Minnesota Twins said they had postponed Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox following the fatal police shooting of a 20-year-old Black man in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center.

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