Saints Show Their Pride During Longest Homestand of the Season June 24-30ST. PAUL, MN June 23, 2016
More than a month into the season and the St. Paul Saints will finally spend a full week at home. We will show our true colors with a lot of pride and variety during the week. Whether you come dressed in a toga or as your favorite superhero, bring your entire family because we’re here to stay…at least for a week .
The homestand begins with a rare four-game wraparound series with the Winnipeg Goldeyes beginning on Friday, June 24 at 7:05 p.m. There is only one way to start the week as we kick off Twin Cities Pride with Xcel Energy Energy Friday Night fireworks to the music of Queen. The Saints and Twin Cities Pride have had a relationship for many years, dating back to Midway Stadium. Prior to this season the two organizations planned another significant event at CHS Field that has now taken on more meaning with the tragedy in Orlando. The weeklong celebration for the LGBT community will hold one of its major events at CHS Field with a night of celebration, honoring the victims in Orlando and educating the public is wrapped around a baseball game. Twin Cities Pride will hand out rainbow colored flags and Saints players will don rainbow-themed uniforms. The jerseys will be auctioned off with portions of the proceeds going to help the Orlando victims. The Saints hope they will be singing We Are The Champions at the end of the season, but for one night We Will Rock You as the post-game fireworks will have all your favorite Queen songs.
The Saints are fourth in the league in stolen bases and will Feel the Need for Speed on Saturday, June 25 at 7:05 p.m. as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Top Gun presented by Discount Tire. We will Talk To You Goose with airplane flying contests and other entertaining games throughout the night, so come on out and be our wingman.
Lurch forward in your seats on this night as we give our salute to the Addams Family on Sunday evening at 5:05 p.m. We may reside at 360 Broadway St., but for one night we’ll be closer to 0001 Cemetery Lane. Don’t be alarmed if a disembodied hand grabs a few of your peanuts because even Wednesday Friday will love Sunday. Following the game kids run the bases and get team autographs during our (Addams) Family Sunday.
If you can wrap your head around this four game series it concludes with an entire night of variety with our Metropolitan State University Monday Variety Show featuring guest emcee Erik Stolhanske with musical guest Gramma’s Boyfriend. Stolhanske, who is known for his work in Super Troopers, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Six Feet Under, will take part in on field promotions, banter with our nightly Masters of Ceremony and provide some humor for the evening. Gramma’s Boyfriend will entertain the crowd with a couple of songs throughout the night that promises to be a rockin good time.
The Sioux Falls Canaries come to CHS Field for the first time this season for a three game series beginning Tuesday, June 28 at 7:05 p.m. with the most hilarious toga party this side of Animal House presented by Weidner Apartment Homes. No need to steal the answers to this test because the answer is simple: fun. So if you’re like Bluto and enjoy an adult beverage or two then this is the party for you. It won’t be over until we say it’s over. Enjoy the amazing food specials on Mississippi Market Tasty Tuesday.
A movie, the theatre or the orchestra all have a matinee show, but none of them can compete with the first afternoon game of the season at CHS Field on Wednesday, June 29 at 1:05 p.m. Take off of work and we’ll write you a note saying you were sick or at least doing something better than sitting at a desk. Enjoy the craziest tailgate party around with Walser Wednesday.
The final day of the homestand is on Thursday, June 30 at 7:05 p.m. as we celebrate Batman’s 50th Birthday on Superhero Night. Whether you are a fan of Wonder Woman, Superman, Wolverine, Spider-Man or Black Widow then this is the perfect party for everyone. Enjoy some of the tastiest beers in the world on $1 Thisrty Thursday.
There is no excuse not to make it out to a Saints game as the month of June comes to a close. Seven days of pride as we come together as a Family to celebrate hero’s, both super and mortal. This party will Top all others with Toga, Toga, Toga’s and a variety of other entertaining events from June 24-30.
