IT WAS SO GOOD WE’LL DO IT AGAIN AS SAINTS RETURN TO CHS FIELD JUNE 5-10
ST. PAUL, MN (June 3, 2015) – Opening night at CHS Field was one of those magical moments that 10 years from now more than the 8,500 plus in attendance will say they were there. The four day homestand produced more fans, nearly 32,000, than any other four game stretch in franchise history. The St. Paul Saints have always believed every night is opening night and fans can expect the entertainment and fun to be at its usual absurd level during the second homestand of the season.
Following the longest roadtrip of the season the Saints return home from June 5-10. The homestand begins with a three game series against their division foes, the Sioux Falls Canaries. On June 5 at 7:05 p.m. under the Dark Star the Ripple of the night sky won’t lead to a Touch of Grey, but to the beautiful colors that will remind fans of Sugar Magnolia’s during Xcel Energy Friday Night Fireworks with the music of the Grateful Dead. Oh the colors! The Saints will honor The Dead by wearing special tie dyed jersey’s that night. What a trip that should be.
Summer is just around the corner and that means more time at the lakes and cabin. While you’re lounging near the water the Saints will provide you with the perfect giveaway for those moments when you’re trying to catch some rays. On Saturday, June 6 at 7:05 p.m. the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a free towel presented by Treasure Island Resort and Casino. Fans won’t have to waste any time using their towel as the 262 fans purchasing tickets on the Treasure Island Berm can use it at the ballpark on the grass in left field. Not only that, but we’ll get you in the mood to sunbathe on Treasure Island Saturday where fans are encouraged to wear their best Hawaiian shirt, leis and big floppy hats.
In case you haven’t noticed the 17,000 square foot dog park just behind the home plate concourse at CHS Field, it will be hard to miss the canines inside the ballpark on Sunday, June 7 during the 5:05 p.m. game. Dogs big and small are welcome, but they must be on a leash, as we find out which owner looks most like their pet, which canine can do the best trick and which breed will win Best in Show (wait that’s a different competition). Not only is this day for the dogs, but it’s for families as well because it’s Savers Family Sunday. Following the game kids run the bases and get team autographs following the game.
The Saints will take on the newest member of the American Association, the Joplin Blasters, in a three game series on June 8-10 with all games at 7:05 p.m. On Monday, June 8 we flex our muscles with Show Us Your Pipes presented by District Energy. Everything ranging from copper, PVC and ABS to those monstrous python pipes you’ve worked so hard to show off for the summer. We will show a use for all of them. Our friends down the road, Metropolitan State University, present Munchie Monday’s with diverse food options from around the globe.
Remember when Saturday morning cartoons used to be a big deal? Those classics like the Smurfs, Fat Albert, Garfield and Friends, Transformers and Muppet Babies. The list goes on and on. The Saints honor those Saturday mornings when kids looked forward to getting up early, racing to the TV and watching hours of classic cartoons as we memorialize Saturday Morning Cartoons. Check out the Mystery Machine in front of the 4th Street entrance. We’ll test your knowledge of some of these cartoons with such questions as, “What was the name of the van in Scooby-Doo?” or “What is the name of Gargamel’s cat in the Smurfs?” on Mississippi Market Trivia Tuesday featuring Trivia Mafia.
The final day of the homestand provides two games at CHS Field with an exhibition game at noon followed by the finale of the three game series against the Blasters at 7:05 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10. The Japan American Society of Minnesota invites you to an exhibition game between the Saints and Shikoku Island League Plus, a Japanese Independent Professional Baseball Team. The game is free and is a warm up for the Shikoku Island League Plus before they head to the east coast and play regular season games against the Can-Am League. That evening learn how to prevent yourself from falling into a pyramid scheme, learn what ransomware is and what makes up a great social media scam during our Good Eggs and Scams presented by the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota. We promise there is no scam with the craziest tailgate party of the year on Walser Wednesday.
The first homestand was memorable, but we’re coming full force in the second homestand at CHS Field. There won’t be any scams with our cartoonish promotions. Our entertainment has more bark than bite that will leave you sweating from so much laughter that you will need to towel off. When the six days are up you’ll be Grateful you’re not Dead because the third homestand is right around the corner.
