It's Duck, Duck...Twister During Saints August 18-24 Homestand

ST. PAUL, MN August 17, 2017

Whether it’s Gray Duck or Goose, our promotions will leave you seeing plenty of colors with a Twister of a night.  We won’t ask you to Beat It when we celebrate two of the most iconic players to don the Saints uniform.  It’s the penultimate homestand as the Cleburne Railroaders and Wichita Wingnuts roll into town from August 18-24. 

 

          The homestand kicks off on Friday, August 18 at 7:05 p.m. You Are Not Alone if you want a Thriller of a fireworks show because we Wanna Be Startin Something with our Xcel Energy Friday Night Fireworks featuring the music of Michael Jackson.

 

          On Saturday, August 19 at 7:05 p.m. we try to answer the age old question: Is it Goose or Gray Duck? The Saints will be the ‘Duck Duck Gray Ducks’ and the visiting Cleburne Railroaders will be donning the competing ‘Cleburne Duck Duck Goose’ jerseys as part of True North Part II presented by Valleyfair.  What started as an April Fools’ joke when the Saints promised to change their name during all 50 games in 2017, turned into a vote by fans for a name change during one game this season.  In a landslide the St. Paul Duck Duck Gray Ducks were born.  A fan suggested the opposing team get the moniker Duck Duck Goose, and so the Cleburne Duck Duck Goose came to life.  Fans can bid on the game worn jerseys as part of the jersey auction during the game.  Make it a tropical evening with Treasure Island Saturday.

 

We honor the first African American to play in the American Association, and for the St. Paul Saints, Roy Campanella, on Sunday, August 20 at 5:05 p.m. presented by FOX. Campanella played for the Saints when they were the Triple-A affiliate of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1948. During his time with the Saints, Campanella hit 13 home runs with a .325 batting average and .715 slugging percentage in just 35 games. These impressive numbers caught the eye of the struggling Dodgers and he was called up to the Major Leagues that same season. Throughout his 10-year Major League career, he hit 242 home runs with 856 RBI. Behind the plate, Campanella’s caught stealing percentage of 57.4% is one of the best in the baseball history. He was always in the top five in the league in putouts and caught stealing. The first 1,500 fans will receive a special Roy Campanella Print to commemorate the occasion. During the game fans can purchase numbered tennis balls for an opportunity to win prizes from FOX.  Following the game three kiddie pools, each representing the three new FOX shows: The Orville, Ghosted and The Gifted, will be placed on the field.  A helicopter with all the purchased tennis balls will be flown above CHS Field and the tennis balls will be dropped towards the kiddie pools.  The kiddie pool with the most tennis balls will be declared the winner and each fans tennis ball in that kiddie pool will receive a grand prize courtesy of FOX.  The tennis balls that land in the other two kiddie pools will also receive prizes.  Following the game kids can run the bases and get autographs from the entire team.

 

          We add some variety, to the homestand, as the Wichita Wingnuts come to town, with our Monday Night Variety Show presented by Metropolitan State University, on Monday, August 21 at 7:05 p.m. featuring guest emcees Tom Barnard and Kathryn Brandt of the Tom Barnard podcast.  Barnard is also the host of the Tom Barnard Show on KQRS-FM and has been named to this year’s class of inductees into the National Radio Hall of Fame.  The guest musician of the night will be Aby Wolf, a local Minneapolis musician. She won City Pages’ best female vocalist award in 2009 and has since been on a world tour promoting her new album “Call the Rocks.”

 

          Things will get weird on Awkward Tuesday presented by Mississippi Market on August 22 at 7:05 p.m.  There is nothing more awkward than bodies contorted with a stranger.  Following the game on August 21 the entire outfield will be painted in a Twister board.  More than 50,000 red, yellow, green and blue dots will engulf the outfield as the Saints and Wingnuts actually play a game on the Twister board on Tuesday.  Not awkward enough for you?  Following that night’s game all fans will be invited down on the field for the largest game of Twister presented by Twin Cities Orthopedics.  The game was created by Reyen Guyer Sr. and his son, Reyn Jr., with the help of Charles F. Foley of Lakeside Industries in Minneapolis.  He hired Neil Rabens, an accomplished product design artist with an art degree from the Minneapolis School of Art Design. 

 

We conclude our Silver Season Celebration on Wednesday, August 23 at 7:05 p.m. with a Darryl Strawberry Commemorative Bobblehead giveaway to the first 1,500 fans. Strawberry was the first overall pick in the 1980 Major League Draft by the New York Mets. He spent 17-years in the Major Leagues and was an eight-time All-Star, from 1984-1991, and helped lead the Mets to a World Series Championship in 1986. After he was granted free agency in 1990, he bounced around to different teams before signing with the St. Paul Saints as a chance to rehabilitate in 1996. In just 29 games with the Saints, he hit .435 with 18 homers and 39 RBI. The Yankees liked what they saw from Strawberry and signed him to their roster. He then went on to win a World Series Championship three months later. Strawberry played with the Yankees through 1999 and collected two more World Series rings in that time. Also enjoy the craziest tailgate of the year on Walser Wednesday.

 

And now for something completely different. On Thursday, August 24 at 7:05 p.m., the Saints will be celebrating Monty Python’s Flying Circus. We can’t promise we won’t interrupt the game to annoy you and make things generally irritating, but we will highlight all the great moments the Flying Circus gave us. You can expect a Spanish Inquisition because it is also Thirsty Thursday with $1 beers presented by Sprint.

 

          Time is running out this summer to catch the Saints in action, but over the final 10 home games our promotions will continue to be a Circus.  Bring family, friends and well-wishers to ballpark because You Are Not Alone.  There will be Ducks on the pond, and on our jersey’s, but the biggest night of the year might leave you tied in knots from our Twister night.

 

Saints tickets continue to be a tremendous value. Tickets begin at $5 for the Treasure Island berm seating (available only on day of game in person at the box office), $6 for bleacher seats, $14 for outfield reserved, $16 for the drink rail and $18 for infield reserved and home plate reserved. Friday Home Games with Post-Game Fireworks are an additional $2 per ticket. Post-Game Fireworks Supershows (August 31) are an additional $3 per ticket. Tickets purchased on the day of the game are an additional $2 per ticket.
