Midway MemoriesST. PAUL, MN June 25, 2014
The Saint Paul Saints have no shortage of traditions. In fact, it’s those very traditions that connect fans and American Association baseball in a way the big leagues never can. Sure, if the Baseball Gods answer your prayers you might see Clayton Kershaw pitch a no hitter and if you do, frame the ticket. But for a guaranteed memory, an experience unlike any sporting event, and a slice of tradition rich in Minnesota pride you need to make a trip to Midway before season’s end.
This is the last season of baseball at the historic Midway Stadium. The Saints are moving next year to a new ballpark in Lowertown. The new facility will seat a crowd of approximately 7,000. In addition to being the Saints’ new home, it will host youth and amateur baseball teams from across the region as well as over 100 non-baseball events a year.
The Saints move into their new digs for the 2015 season. The ballpark is designed to provide the best fan experience, while maintaining the Saints’ tradition of providing affordable family fun. Lowertown is an exciting new chapter for the Saints. Before they move, the Saints are honoring Midway’s history by encouraging fans to Take the Last Train to Midway. It is a season packed with promotional excitement.
We will be using this space to commemorate Midway traditions and memories. So stay tuned for more on the alums, the entertainers, and ball-pigs, and characters that have made Midway special.
