Fans have poured into CHS Field during the first two seasons in Lowertown, playing to a minor league record 117% capacity in 2017.

The St. Paul Saints have produced back-to-back North Division Championships and the best record in the American Association over the last two seasons, 135-65. The only way to top it all is a blowout 25th, Silver Anniversary Celebration and fans can get their tickets for the season long festivities when single-game tickets go on sale, Saturday, March 18.
