The Minnesota Twins are awaiting word from the governor’s office about a proposal to allow 10,000 fans inside Target Field at the start of the 2021 MLB season.
“We’ve delivered plans,” Twins president David St. Peter said via WCCO radio. “Socially distanced, people wearing masks, all kinds of protocols in place to ensure the safety of the fans, our staff and players.”
Target Field seats about 40,000. St. Peter said the Twins expect to hear from the governor’s office one way or the other by the end of next month.
They played all of last season without fans in the ballparks, but fans started to trickle into NFL stadiums in the fall and are currently doing the same in NBA arenas. The Twins and most other MLB teams are hoping the results will be the same for them soon.
