Knot Your Average Homestand: Saints Mix Politics, Day Baseball and Music During Three Game HomestandST. PAUL, MN August 19, 2016
Day dreaming of an early answer to this years election the St. Paul Saints return to CHS Field for a variety of entertainment that will anchor the early part of the week. Whether you shake your head yes or no at political conversation, there is no reason Y you shouldn’t be In The Know on the Saints playoffs chances as they host the Wichita Wingnuts from August 22-24 in the second to last homestand of the season.
Kicking off the series on Monday, August 22 at 7:05 p.m. it’s another Metropolitan State Monday with guest emcee Don Shelby and guest musician P.O.S. An environmentalist at heart, Shelby will no doubt enjoy a night in charge of the entertainment at the Greenest Ballpark in America. A longtime anchor for WCCO-TV, Emmy winner and two-time Peabody Award recipient, Shelby should knot have to investigate the Saints very much to understand our unique brand of fun that he’ll be a part of on Monday night. Providing the soundtrack for the night is hip-hop artist P.O.S., whose mix of instruments and sampled sounds will be one of the more unique Monday musical guests.
It’s fun to stay at CHS Field on Tuesday, August 23 at 12:05 p.m. for our YMCA Day. During the Saints third day game this year, kids from the YMCA should have plenty of reasons to get out of their seats in celebration. No cowboys or construction workers will be present, but the game is open to anyone who wants to see the Saints take on one of the best teams in the American Association. Fans will be able to do whatever they feel and get a good meal on Mississippi Market Tasty Tuesday.
The series comes to a quick conclusion on Wednesday, August 24 at 7:05 p.m. with a presidential poll that puts Gallop to shame- Bobblection 2016. Making its triumphant return for a fourth presidential election, the Bobblection has been an accurate predictor of the next occupant of the Oval Office in two of its three incarnations. Transforming the ballpark into a voting booth, St. Paul will become a political battleground as fans choose to “Make America Great Again” or be “Stronger Together.” The first 1,500 fans will vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and receive a bobblehead in the likeness of their choice for Commander in Chief. With an even number of bobbleheads and a foolproof “First one to run out wins” approach, there is no way this election is rigged. The results from CHS Field will be added to similar Bobblections in seven different states that will determine the early winner of the 2016 election. If politics aren’t your taste, don’t panic, we’ve got paw-litics when the Paw Patrol stops off at CHS Field. From 4-8 p.m. Broadway will become a pawsome area with kids’ rides, a meet and greet with the mascots and other interactive activities. Fans can also come early for the craziest tailgate party of the year that will make the debates look like afternoon tea on Walser Wednesday.
It doesn’t matter your political or musical preference, fans will find many ways to have a good time during the Saints penultimate homestand of the season. Though it’s only three games, don’t bobble one of the final chances to see the Saints and the variety of ways we make a trip to the ballpark fun for fans of all ages.
