Please give us more details. This could be any number of issues. Shift lever bent, to something broken inside the transmission.

Get a can of PBlaster. Look down under the mower at the place where the shifter actually enters the top of the transmission case. Spray that area and work the shifter back and forth. Do this a few times until the shifter moves freely. This is generally caused by rust. Water trickles down the shifter into the bearing in the case and rusts it up.
