Twins President and CEO Dave St. Peter called into The Morning News with Dave Lee this morning to talk about what Major League Baseball is discussing during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

St. Peter says that while the Twins fans want baseball, they understand why there isn't baseball being played. 

"I think there's still a lot of questions on where baseball fits if it fits and at the right time we continue to hope it will come back, " St. Peter said. "Twins baseball will be at the forefront. We'll obviously have a really good team. We're trying to really stay connected to the fans, stay connected with the community, try to do things to really help people, a lot of our part-time staff that has been displaced we're trying to reach out to them. At the end of the day, it's about overcommunicating this timeframe."

St. Peter continued to say that baseball is in a holding pattern while other sports are trying to figure out how to finish their seasons. The Twins President said that all scenarios are on the table, including playing at neutral sites and playing in home ballparks with no fans, along with playing the sport as it normally is. He said that a silver lining did come out of all of this:

"One of the silver linings to all of this is it has brought some people together to talk about common challenges and issues" St. Peter said about coming together with other sports teams and the University of Minnesota. 

The Twins will be announcing credit and refund procedures for games lost soon. If you have any questions, you can get answers here.
