BILL MURRAY SIGHTINGS DURING THE NEXT SAINTS HOMESTAND
ST. PAUL, MN (June 4, 2014) – The Dog Days of Summer haven’t quite arrived, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of barking at Midway Stadium during the next homestand. Don’t be afraid, though, because you can Come On Down to the ballpark and see our Team Psychologist’s face all over the ballpark. Don’t worry the camouflage won’t hide him. He will be in plain sight.
Friday, June 6 vs. Sioux City (7:05 p.m.) – There is no better way to celebrate the team returning from their longest roadtrip of the season than with a dash of nostalgia, a little patriotism and a lot of fireworks. The Saints go back in time to 1998’s M*A*S*H Night with the first 500 fans receiving a camouflage baseball giveaway courtesy of US Army Recruiting Battalion. The Saints will wear special camouflage jerseys and each player will sign their uniform as fans will have a chance to bid on them. Following the game the patriotic evening concludes with Xcel Energy Friday Night Fireworks.
Saturday, June 7 vs. Sioux City (7:05 p.m.) – Tonight there will be “human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria.” Just another typical night at a Saints game. Look out beyond center field and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man may come crashing through the wall, so Who You Gonna Call on the 30th Anniversary of Ghostbusters. We celebrate with a Bill Murray T-Shirt Giveaway presented by Walser Automotive. Only the first 1,000 people through the gates will get this instant classic, so make sure to get in line early as gates open at 6:00 p.m. If you aren’t one of the first 1,000 fans, don’t worry, you will have a chance to win up to $77,777 on St. Croix Casino Big Money $aturday.
Sunday, June 8 vs. Sioux City (1:05 p.m.) – Did you know the Beatles song “A Day In The Life” has an extra high-pitched whistle, audible only to dogs? Paul McCartney recorded it for the enjoyment of his Shetland sheepdog. Chances are we won’t play any high pitched sounds, but you and your shaggy friend can enjoy a day at the ballpark with the annual Dog Day at Midway presented by the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center. Contests will take place all game long as we look for dogs that resemble their owner or a famous celebrity, a dog treat eating contest and the always entertaining dog trick competition. Following the game kids run the bases and get autographs from the entire team on Savers Family Sunday.
Monday, June 9 vs. Sioux Falls (7:05 p.m.) – Do you have trouble climbing a ladder because you’re afraid of heights? Can’t get the courage to ask that special someone out. Or maybe you are just afraid of the unknown. Then this is the perfect night for you, even if you deal with agoraphobia, as it’s Face Your Fears Night. We help you get the courage to battle your deepest, darkest fears, which may include your ex-spouse. We’ll help you get over limnophobia as fans will have a chance to win a boat on Hannay’s Marine Mondays.
Tuesday, June 10 vs. Sioux Falls (7:05 p.m.) - The history of Larry Doby is not only important to Major League Baseball, but it is especially important to St. Paul Saints owner and President, Mike Veeck. His father, Bill, signed Doby as the first African American to play in the American League with the Cleveland Indians. The Saints have honored Doby for many years and will do so again on Larry Doby Night presented by Central Bank. Saints and Canaries will wear special Negro League jerseys to commemorate the occasion. The Saints will be clad in the uniforms of the Newark Eagles, the same team that Doby guided to the 1946 Negro League Championship. The Canaries will wear uniforms of the Homestead Grays, the team Josh Gibson played for during his storied career. Doby will be honored throughout the night with games, facts and a historical perspective of African American’s in the National Pastime. The Saints partnered with Central Bank, who will donate 2,000 tickets to local non-profits such as Boys & Girls Club, Youth Services Bureau, BBBS, Youth Investments and many others in the area. You will learn a lot on this night and that’s the way we like it on Metropolitan State Tuesdays. Fans can also enjoy craft beer specials throughout the game.
Wednesday, June 11 vs. Sioux Falls (7:05 p.m.) – Pat, I’d like to solve the puzzle, but you will have to answer in the form of a question because, if not, the whammies are sure to get you. We bring back 1999s Game Show Night. If you want to use a life line then Let’s Make A Deal because it can all be yours if The Price is Right. The fun begins before the game with the craziest tailgate party around with Walser Wednesday.
The Saints have been on the road for 11-days, but don’t worry they are back for six fun-filled nights. What better way to get reacquainted with the team, your friends and family than enjoying some good old fashioned fun at the ballpark.
