La Velle E. Neal III has covered baseball for the Star Tribune since 1998 (the post-Knoblauch era). Born and raised in Chicago, he grew up following the White Sox and hating the Cubs. He attended both the University of Illinois and Illinois-Chicago and began his baseball writing career at the Kansas City Star. He can be heard occasionally on KFAN radio, lending his great baseball mind to Paul Allen and other hosts. Mark Rosen borrows him occasionally for WCCO-TV.

Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins-Dodgers game postponed; doubleheader Thursday

Posted by: La Velle E. Neal III Updated: April 29, 2014 - 1:16 PM

Mother Nature wins again.

The Twins-Dodgers game scheduled for tonight has been postponed. The game will be made up on Thursday as part of a Day-Night doubleheader at Target Field. Game one will be the regularly-scheduled matchup at 12:10 p.m., then the makeup game at 6:10 p.m.

Twins players are working out at the park today, anyway.

The starting rotation remains unchanged. Everyone will be pushed back a day. Kyle Gibson starts Wednesday, with Mike Pelfrey and Ricky Nolasco pitching in the doubleheader.

Below are the Twins' instructions on what to do with tickets purchased for tonight's game:

Fans holding tickets to tonight’s (April 29) postponed game have two options:

2.) Exchange their unused tickets for a future Twins regular season game in 2014 (subject to pricing tier (additional details below) and ticket availability). Unused tickets may be exchanged only at the Target Field Ticket Office located on Target Plaza off 7th Street.

Tickets for the postponed game are not subject to refunds.
