Saints To Honor Jacob Wetterling Saturday With #11 PatchST. PAUL, MN September 9, 2016
The state of Minnesota is a tight knit community and the sports landscape is a part of that. Following the lead of the Minnesota Twins, University of Minnesota Football team and Minnesota Vikings the St. Paul Saints will honor Jacob Wetterling during Game 3 of the Division Series on Saturday, September 10 at CHS Field.
The Saints will wear a #11 patch on their home white uniforms in memory of Jacob Wetterling. Jacob was a fan of the #11 as a child and his family has asked people to use the number 11 as a symbol of hope to honor their son and show commitment to making the world a better place.
There will be a moment of silence prior to their 7:05 p.m. Division Series game against the Winnipeg Goldeyes in memory of Jacob.
A portion of the proceeds from Saturday night’s game will be donated to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center. The center was founded to educate and assist families and communities with the goal of addressing and preventing exploitation of children.
