Welcome to the Neighborhood, Saints 2013 Promotions Highlighted With Twinkie Territory

ST. PAUL, MN May 2, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (May 2, 2013) – It’s a beautiful day in our neighborhood as the 21st season of St. Paul Saints baseball officially kicks off Thursday, May 16.  Twinkies, food trucks and donuts will satiate the hunger pains from a long off-season.  Don’t worry we will have TP for the BM after all that gorging.  Fans will get the Hall of Fame treatment with dollar bills handed out at the gate, but for those wanting their own personal seat license you may have to find it on Craigslist. 

 

            The last remaining Twinkies and CupCakes in existence are at Midway Stadium and the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive one during “This Is Twinkie Territory” at the ballpark on Friday, May 17 at 7:05 p.m.  The Saints managed to get their hands on these delectable treats and our fans will reap the benefits.  The golden snack cake or chocolate goodness with filling in the middle brings back memories of our childhood.  Bring the kids and watch as the Saints do their own Twinkie experiment and decipher between truth and myth when it comes to this guilty pleasure including if it can survive an entire season in our ballpark.

 

            The women on the Minnesota sports scene are making a lot of noise these days and that’s why the Saints will hold a day to “Celebrate Women in Sports” on Saturday, May 18 at 7:05 p.m.  The Saints have invited women championship teams from around the state and the National Champion University of Minnesota women’s Gopher hockey team will also be in attendance.

 

            From one scrumptious treat to another during Law Enforcement Appreciation Night on Friday, June 7 at 7:05 p.m.  How are these two related?  It’s National Donut Day, of course, or as Homer Simpson would say, “MMMMM Donuts.”  Whether you like your donut glazed, with sprinkles, shaped like a bear claw, jelly-filled, cream-filled or hole-shaped the Saints will have a little something for everyone.   Salute the men and women of the law enforcement who help keep our cities safe, so that we can walk to our local donut shop and scarf down as many donuts as we desire.

 

            The Saints are known for their hilarious gags during each baseball game, but the greatest baseball skit of all-time comes to Midway Stadium on Sunday, June 9 at 1:05 p.m.  In honor of the 75th Anniversary of Abbott and Costello’s, “Who’s On First” the Saints will wear special jerseys to honor the classic routine.  The uniforms will come complete with a different name for each player, “Who, What and I Don’t Know, etc.” on the back.  The first 500 fans 14 and under will receive a special replica Saints jersey with one of the three names on the back along with the number “75” to signify the 75th Anniversary.

 

            All this eating will leave plenty of fans backed up which is why we are having our Toilet Paper Drive, benefitting Second Harvest Heartland, presented by Innovative Office Solutions on Monday, June 17 at 7:05 p.m.  We should all be thankful for the invention of toilet paper because prior to that Greeks used stones and pieces of clay while Ancient Romans used a sponge on the end of a stick that was used by everyone in the community.  While there will be plenty of 2-ply and 3-ply to go around, the Saints are asking fans to bring a roll that can be donated to those in need.

 

             On Tuesday, June 25 at 7:05 p.m. we are giving away free Craigslist items to the first 1,000 fans that enter the ballpark.  The excitement will build as you enter the gates as fans find out if they will receive electronics, DVD’s, toys, furniture or even clothes.  The sky is the limit with the numerous items Craigslist offers.  If a deal is too good to be true on Craigslist it probably is, but when the Saints say they are giving away free items it’s the truth. 

 

            Dolla Dolla Bill Y’all!  That’s right the Saints are giving the first 1,500 fans that enter the ballpark on Thursday, August 22 at 7:05 p.m. $1 presented by TopLine Federal Credit Union.  There is one caveat, however, as that dollar must be donated to one of the non-profit organizations at the ballpark that night.  Choose your favorite cause, take the dollar the Saints and TopLine Federal Credit Union are giving you and hand it over to those that need it more.  If you’re so inclined feel free to give a little extra.

 

            Obvious baseball talent is easy to spot, but during a 50 round draft it’s those diamonds in the rough that help make a Major League team a World Series contender.  It’s the job of scouts to find those players in big cities and small towns and we salute them during our Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame Night presented by Killebrew Root Beer on Saturday, August 24 at 7:05 p.m.  The Saints will honor John Mirabelli, Senior Director, Scouting Operations for the Cleveland Indians. 

 

            Another Hall of Fame tribute will take place on Sunday, July 28 at 1:05 p.m.  The Saints have confirmed that the entire 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame induction class will be at Midway Stadium.  They will be honored before the game and will sign autographs for every fan in attendance.  There will also be a photo booth set up so each fan can have their picture taken with this esteemed class.

 

            Ballparks and stadiums from coast-to-coast require their fans to purchase personal seat licenses for the right to sit in their own seat.  We thought we’d give it a shot, Saints-style, with our own Personal Seat License Giveaway to the first 1,000 fans on Saturday, August 31 at 7:05 p.m. 

 

            Along with these unique promotions the Saints are bringing back Friday Night Fireworks presented by Xcel Energy.  These seven incredible shows will be coupled with three additional Super Shows on Sunday, May 26, Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, September 1.

 

            Additional weekly promotions will bring back some favorites coupled with brand new experiences.  Each Monday will be $1 beer all night long on Buck Beer Night.  Tuesday fans can sample the area’s best street food on Food Truck Tuesdays.  Make sure to come early on Wednesday for the craziest tailgate party of the year on Walser Wednesday.  Enjoy small-batch beer at special prices on Brew Pub Pizza Craft Beer Thursday.  St. Croix Casino Big Money $aturdays gives fans a chance to win up to $77,777.  Every Sunday kids run the bases and get autographs from the entire team after the game on Savers Family Sunday.  Each Savers Family Sunday begins with the Reading Tree Program, which has local authors or illustrator, along with a Saints player, reading to kids on the field approximately 45 minutes before game time.
