Saints Close out 20th Season with a Bounty We Can All Cash in On

August 31, 2012 - American Association (AA) - St. Paul Saints News Release

ST. PAUL, MN (August 31, 2012) - A night of big hits highlights a season that has had many big promotional hits for the St. Paul Saints. One of the biggest fireworks nights of the season honors a fan that got in on the ground floor, but as always, the Saints will honor all their fans as the curtain comes down on the 20th season of Saints baseball.

The homestand begins on Saturday, September 1 at 7:05 p.m. as the Saints open up their final three-game series of the season against the Central Division champion Wichita Wingnuts. The St. Paul Saints will be gunning for the opposition and plan to PAY a TON of money for a worthy cause on Bounty Night. For each bone crunching hit the Saints will collect a bounty and the bigger the hit, the larger the sum: a single is worth $100, a double $200, a triple $300 and a home run is worth $400. For every pitcher the Saints "knock-out" another $50 will be collected. Each time a Saints pitcher "punches out" an opposing hitter, $10 will be donated. At the end of the night all the money collected from the bounty system will be placed in a LOOMIS armored truck and taken to Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and donated to their new concussion research program. The first 500 fans will receive a piggy bank, so they can fill it up with their own bounties and donate the money to a worthy cause. Summer is coming to an end, so study up for Success Saturdays with University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

On Sunday, September 2 at 7:05 p.m. it's Jackie Lee's Night! Who's Jackie Lee? Was she a former Saints employee? Is she a famous actress? Neither that we're aware of, but we do know she purchased tickets to a Saints game on the very first day they were available. Because of that she was entered into a drawing for some fabulous prizes, one of which was having a night named after her and thus Jackie Lee Night. Come celebrate her good fortune and yours because Jackie Lee is putting on a celebration you won't forget. We're pulling out all the stops with our Final Fireworks Super Show following the game. They are longer, louder and more colorful than anything you've seen in the Twin Cities.

Let us do all the laboring while you sit back and enjoy the final regular season home game on Monday, September 3 at 1:05 p.m. with the annual Labor Day Celebration. The kids are ready to return to school and, with football season just days away, the Saints need to say thank you one last time. The atmosphere of the parking lot with a fun live band and all those hooting tailgaters just sets the tone for a fun day at the ballpark. Mondays are always BUZ'N Buck Beer Days, so cool off with dollar beers all day long.

The St. Paul Saints would like to thank all of our wonderful fans for another memorable season and for making our 20th anniversary very special. Here's to 20 more years together, because the future looks bright. Regardless of why you came here, thanks for sharing our home and making it a special place to be. It feels like the season just began, but this is often how these things go. Nonetheless, you know where to find us and we'll see you very soon.
