Many downtown Minneapolis businesses have been looking forward to baseball returning to Target Field — but many fear a potential MLB lockout and what it could mean for their business.

“It’s definitely a huge driving force of us here in the summertime for sure,” Jolene Rood, general manager at B.A.D. Wingz said. “That makes me sad. I want to see the fans. I want to see people going to the baseball games. I want to fill this building up again.”

Rood says if the lockout happens it could impact sales at the restaurant by 30%.
