AN UNFORGETTABLE INDEPENDENCE CELEBRATION HIGHLIGHTS SAINTS JULY 1-3 HOMESTAND
ST. PAUL, MN (June 30, 2014) – It’s the shortest homestand of the season, but it’s like a box of chocolates you never know what you’re gonna get. Whether it’s an appearance by Kris Kringle or the most spectacular fireworks show in the Twin Cities the St. Paul Saints know how to pack it all in before you head off to the cabin for a long holiday weekend.
Tuesday, July 1 vs. Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (7:05 p.m.) Christmas in July – It’s six months until Christmas rolls around again, but you don’t even need to get a present for our Christmas in July night at the ballpark. This is a day for all our fans as we give you the gift of fun. Twas Six Months Before Christmas and all through the ballpark not a creature was stirring, not even Evan Bigley’s Bat. Follow Rudolph’s nose to your seat, grab a gift from under the tree where there may be cookies waiting for you. Learn a little more about Christmas on Metropolitan State Tuesday and while it might not be eggnog there will be craft beer specials throughout the night.
Wednesday, July 2 vs. Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (7:05 p.m.) 20th Anniversary of Forrest Gump – Grab your best running shoes and find a ping pong paddle as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Forrest Gump. While our own Team Psychologist, Bill Murray, may have turned down the role of Forrest, we can all agree Tom Hanks gave an award winning performance. Come hang out with Bubba, Jenny and the whole gang and enjoy some shrimp. We will barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. It won’t quite be shrimp, but enjoy free hot dogs during the craziest tailgate party of the year on Walser Wednesday.
Thursday, July 3 vs. Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (7:05 p.m.) Independence Day Celebration with Post-Game Fireworks – One of the most special nights of the season as we honor the military and their family all in celebration our countries birthday. The Saints team up with Defending the Base Line to help bring baseball to the children of military families. Defending the Baseline is a non-profit organization that ensures children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of baseball. They provide free baseball equipment for military children, special events and financial assistance for registration fees and costs associated with baseball. In addition, they provide unique experiences for these families. The game will be preceded by a pregame presentation featuring a swearing-in ceremony for the Minneapolis Recruiting Battalion. Also in attendance will be future soldiers from the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Recruiting Companies. Most of the future soldiers will be leaving this summer to attend training at various locations in the U.S. The Saints and their partners will give away 1,500 tickets to military members and their families. The national anthem will be sung by KFAN’s own Chris Hawkey. Following the game is a Fireworks SuerShow presented by Xcel Energy. Celebrate the evening with $1 beer specials on Thirsty Thursday.
