MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Twins fans get ready, because baseball is officially back.
On Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced plans to unilaterally issue a 60-game schedule for its shortest season since 1878. The return comes months after the MLB had to postpone the start of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Several Twins players are now posting to social media to celebrate their exciting return to the field.
