The start time for the D-backs game against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon has been pushed back to 4:45 p.m. due to pregame activities honoring former Twin Joe Mauer’s addition to the team’s Hall of Fame, according to MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert.
IMPORTANT note about today’s @Dbacks game…
I know that the schedule lists the start as 4:10 pm MST but the actual 1st pitch is 4:45 pm MST. Pregame coverage on TV will start at 4:30 pm MST.
