 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Twins have postponed Thursday's game against Kansas City following a bridge collapse near the Metrodome and team president Dave St. Peter said their weekend series with Cleveland also could be affected.
The Twins also postponed Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony for the team's new stadium, which will be located downtown.
Twins officials decided to play Wednesday night's game after conferring with department of public safety officials. It was decided that sending 20,000-25,000 people back into traffic could hinder rescue efforts.
``It is a difficult situation, but it was the right to do to play tonight,'' St. Peter said. ``Tomorrow is a different story. Not playing tomorrow is also a matter of traffic control. We are respectful of the situation and for the lives lost.''
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig was scheduled to be in town for Thursday's groundbreaking. St. Peter said Major League Baseball is aware of the situation and the postponements.
He also said that, to the best of his knowledge, all Twins front office personnel and player's families are safe.
There was no immediate word on the number of injuries in the collapse, but aerial footage on a local television station showed dozens of rescue vehicles.
