The Twins have called off tonight's game against the Detroit Tigers but are still planning to play Saturday and Sunday afternoon, when temperatures are expected to be in the 40 to 45 degree range with minimal chance of precipitation.
"We will play tomorrow and Saturday," Twins president Dave St. Peter said.

Tonight's game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader with Detroit on Saturday, May 11. The teams have a regularly scheduled 1:10 p.m. game that day, and the makeup game will be at 7:10 p.m.
Here's the team's ticket exchange policy, which includes a couple of factors unique to Friday's postponement.
