Saints Next Homestand, May 26-29, Highlighted By Purple GameST. PAUL, MN May 25, 2016
Get as much of the St. Paul Saints as possible over the next four days because the team embarks on its longest roadtrip in franchise history, 14 games. Before the roadtrip we promise not to get too Angry that we won’t be back until mid-June as we’ll throw a party like it’s 1999 and light up the night sky in Purple. It’s four days that no fan will soon forget from May 26-29.
The Kansas City T-Bones make their first visit to CHS Field for a four game homestand that begins on Thursday night, May 26 at 7:05 p.m. The men and women who protect our country, helping provide us freedom, are honored on this special day. This is just the first of many days we honor our military members on Military Appreciation Night presented by James Bellentine VFW Post 246. Military members will receive up to six free admissions when they bring their military I.D. to the ticket office.
The Best Part of Waking Up is going to a Saints Friday Night Fireworks game presented by Xcel Energy at 7:05 p.m. Like A Good Neighbor We’d Like to Teach The World To Sing as the fireworks show will be set to commercial jingles. We Don’t Want To Grow Up, So Give Me A Break while we have a little fun with these songs.
There is no reason to get upset as we try to help our fine feathered friends. We will strap on a football helmet for our Angry Bird giveaway, presented by Walser, as the first 1,500 fans on May 28 at 7:05 p.m. will receive these stress ball style giveaways. We promote the safety of birds just in case they should run into any unforeseen clear, hard stadiums.
On Sunday, May 29 the Saints will bring back a promotion they have done two others times, in 2008 and again in 2014, as a way to pay tribute to the legendary artist Prince. The Saints will recreate those two magical nights as players will don special Purple jersey’s that evening. Along with the color change the numbers on the back of the uniforms will be replaced by the corresponding symbol one would find on a keyboard. The uniforms will be auctioned off at the end of the night and all proceeds will be donated to the Elevate Hope Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing abused and abandoned children an alternative method of therapy through music and the arts. The program was started by Sheila E. and Prince was one of the early supporters of the program.
Along with the special uniforms, the entire night will feature Prince songs, including an already scheduled Post Game SPIREworks Super Show which will be accompanied by Prince songs. Also, all the fireworks will be the color Purple.
Following the game, and before the fireworks, CHS Field will be overrun with food trucks. Fans can fill their appetites with some of the best food trucks from the Twin Cities. Those scheduled to appear are Sandy’s Grill & Italian Ice, Tiki Tim’s, R.A. MacSammy’s, O Cheeze, Bacon Me Crazy, Nine Yum Yum, Global Street Eats, Z’s Smokin’ Bones BBQ and Tasty Twins Truck.
