We're Gonna Make It After All: Saints Kick-Off 25th Anniversary Season With Mary Tyler Moore Tribute, Give Away 6,000 Tams On Opening Night

ST. PAUL, MN March 14, 2017

Last season the St. Paul Saints honored one of Minnesota’s iconic entertainers, Prince, with One Last Purple Game.  This season the team will once again honor an iconic entertainer, Mary Tyler Moore, whose impactful TV Show used Minnesota as her home.  On Opening Day the Saints, who celebrate their 25th season, will highlight the actress with “We’re Gonna Make It After All” Night.

 

          On Thursday, May 18, the first game of their Silver Anniversary Season, the Saints will hand out tams, the hat Moore threw in the air at the end of the opening sequence of the show, to the first 6,000 fans in attendance.  The tams will have blue and white stripes on the majority of the cap, with the bottom of the cap solid blue with two black stripes, similar to the color of Moore’s tam.  In addition, at the end of the second inning the Saints will play the opening sequence on the video board and fans will be asked to spin around and throw their tams in the air at the same time as Moore. 

 

          As part of the pomp and circumstance of the Opening Night team introductions the Saints will pay tribute to Moore’s character as a news producer by inviting out local Minnesota newscasters.  Each newscaster will be paired up with a Saints player and will take the field with the team prior to the game.

 

          In the show Moore plays Mary Richards, who moves to Minneapolis and gets the position of Associate Producer for WJM’s Six O’Clock News.  She becomes friends with her boss, Lou Grant (Ed Asner), newswriter Murray Slaughter (Gavin MacLeod) and anchorman Tex Baxter (Ted Knight). 

 

          Mary rents a third-floor studio apartment in a 19th-century home from Phyllis Lindstrom (Cloris Leachman) and becomes best friends with her upstairs neighbor Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper).  The exterior shot of the house, featured in the opening credits, is located at 2104 Kenwood Parkway between Cedar Lake and Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis.

 

Saints tickets continue to be a tremendous value.  Tickets begin at $5 for the Treasure Island berm seating (available only on day of game in person at the box office), $6 for bleacher seats, $14 for outfield reserved, $16 for the drink rail and $18 for infield reserved and home plate reserved.  Friday Home Games with Post-Game Fireworks are an additional $2 per ticket.  Post-Game Fireworks Supershows (May 28, July 2 and August 31) are an additional $3 per ticket.  Tickets purchased on the day of the game are an additional $2 per ticket.  Children under the age of 12 and seniors 65 and older receive $1 off the admission price.  Children under 2 that don't require a seat are free. 

 

Beginning March 18, Saints Box Office hours on non-game days are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  On game days, the Box Office will open at 9 a.m., Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. Saturday and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday and will remain open until 15 minutes following each game.  Tickets are always available at saintsbaseball.com.

 

The Saints open the 2017 season on Thursday, May 18 with a 7:05 p.m. game against the Gary SouthShore Railcats.  For more information contact the Saints at 651-644-6659 or visit saintsbaseball.com.
