After two of the most successful years in St. Paul Saints franchise history: the opening of CHS Field, record attendance, countless awards, the hosting of the league’s All-Star Game and universal praise, the organization is rewarding many of its employees who helped make it possible with promotions.
Last season the St. Paul Saints carried five rookies. When those rookies contribute it’s like found money. If a rookie is an integral part of the team, especially in a playoff race, it’s like buying a penny stock and watching it take off.
It was important for right-handed pitcher John Straka to pitch in front of friends and family last season. The St. Paul Saints made a move prior to the 2016 season to work out a trade with the Sioux City Explorers to make that happen.
