August 22, 2019 - American Association (AA) - St. Paul Saints News Release

ST. PAUL, MN - Yes, the final homestand of the Saints' season is upon us. Cue the aggressive moaning.

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of "The Cat's" game-winning stop against Iceland....with your dog. Don't forget to treat yourself by celebrating your own one-year anniversary. Let us show our appreciation for another great season from August 24-30.

Saturday, August 24 vs. Chicago Dogs, 7:05pm - Zombie Night presented by ValleySCARE

Are you one of those people who already bought your Halloween costume and candy? If you are, you're pretty smart because we're celebrating the holiday two months early with Zombie Night presented by ValleySCARE. You never know what frightening creatures you might see at the ballpark on this scary Saturday. It won't be too eerie though. After all, you can fend off any zombie apocalypse with your Hawaiian pitchfork on a Treasure Island Resort and Casino Saturday.

Sunday, August 25 vs. Chicago Dogs, 5:05pm - City of Baseball Museum Series (First 1,500 fans receive Lexington Park pennant)

It's the fourth and final installment of our City of Baseball Museum Series. This time, we're honoring Lexington Park, longtime home of the Saints from 1897 to 1956. The stadium was commissioned by Charles Comiskey to serve as the home for his Western League franchise. In late 1899, that league changed its name to the American League in an attempt to gain Major League status. Comiskey would end up moving his team to Chicago in 1900, where they became the Chicago White Sox. Thus, Lexington Park technically served as the Southsiders' original home. The first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive a pennant commemorating the Saints' association with the historic ballpark. Remember that kids run the bases and get team autographs after the game on this Cub Family Sunday.

Monday, August 26 vs. Chicago Dogs, 7:05pm - Dog Day and 25th Anniversary of Mighty Ducks 2

Why have a night revolving around one animal? This isn't a baseball game. It's a circus. When the wind blows hard and the sky is black, dogs and ducks fly together as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Mighty Ducks 2 and a special addition of our second Dog Day this season. Have your puppies tag along with you to celebrate as one of the all-time classic sports movies turns a quarter of a century. We'll even teach them how to quack in a way that will make Gordon Bombay and the Bash Brothers proud. It's a jam packed night on this Metropolitan State University Gotta Go Monday.
