Live From St. Paul, It's A Weekend Filled With Pro's And PrincessesST. PAUL, MN August 10, 2016
Roll out the red carpet and get your best monologue ready during a weekend that fans shouldn’t trade for anything. Living legends and Disney Divas will parade through the pixels of CHS Field when the Sioux Falls Canaries come to town for a weekend series from August 11- 14.
Start your weekend early on Thursday, August 11at 7:05 p.m. when the Saints salute a pair of St. Paul originals. Though they’ve been honored in Cooperstown, Paul Molitor and Dave Winfield will be immortalized in their hometown when they are recognized for their Hall of Fame careers at CHS Field. Separated by just a few years, both Molitor and Winfield grew up playing at Oxford Park before they became standout players at the University of Minnesota. In the Major Leagues they were never teammates, but the two share a few similar accomplishments. Both won a World Series with the Toronto Blue Jays and both were back with their hometown team, the Minnesota Twins, when they joined the 3,000 hit club. It is for these accomplishments and all that they have done for the City of Saint Paul that the Saints are saluting the Hall of Famers, presented by Killebrew Root Beer. There will be plenty of brews available with $1 beers on Thirsty Thursday presented by North Lake Beer.
For the second straight night, there will be an acknowledgment of the baseball immortal on Saturday, August 12 at 7:05 p.m. as the Saints induct Steve Williams into the Killebrew Root Beer Scouts Hall of Fame. Working as a professional scout since 1988, Williams was a part of the Twins, Blue Jays, Tigers and Royals scouting departments before joining the Pirates in 2009. During his time with the Royals, Williams served as the Assistant Director of Scouting and oversaw the signing of key pieces to the Royals World Series team, including Mike Moustakes, Eric Hosmer and Danny Duffy. Williams has also served as the President of the Buck O’Neil Scouting and Coaches Association for the past 16 years. He will be honored when his plaque is unveiled on the Killebrew Scouts Hall of Fame just outside the Broadway gate. Pac-ing into CHS Field like Tetris blocks, fans will also enjoy The Show on an Xcel Energy Friday Night Fireworks set to video game music, which will glisten like rupees on the Lowertown sky. Pitching fireballs and running the bases faster than Sonic, the Saints will try and use their best finishing move on the Canaries.
Stay up late and laugh with us on Saturday, August 13 at 7:05 p.m. when Saints baseball is Live from St. Paul! Motivate yourself to get out of your van down by the river and come Party On with the Saints. Just because they have the best record in the American Association doesn’t mean they don’t put their pants on one leg at a time, so grab your cheerleader outfits and get ready for some more cowbell. We make no promises whether the bullpen will be in Chippendale’s attire, but there will be a tropical theme throughout the ballpark on Treasure Island Saturday.
From a ballpark to a ballroom, CHS Field will be transformed into a fairy tale world on Sunday, August 14 at 5:05 p.m. when we celebrate Princesses and Players. Tiaras and towering fly balls will be paired together in the season finale between the Saints and Canaries. Whether the slipper fits for a series sweep or not, be our guest on a magic carpet ride through an exciting Sunday at the ballpark. Additionally, fans will be able to take home the likeness of their favorite Saints players with our Saints Team Card Set Giveaway to the first 1,500 fans. Kids run the bases and fans can get their recently acquired cards autographed by the players on the field after the game on Family Sunday.
Hall of Famers, humor and hero’s are all part of a four game series at CHS Field. Whether the moon is made of barbeque spare ribs or not, it will be shining on a magical weekend filled with ball gowns and baseball cards during one of the final homestands for the Saints as they barrel towards the playoffs.
