St Paul Saints All You Need to Know About Your First Game at CHS Field

In Minneapolis, if you want to see a Baseball Game go to a Twins Game. But in Saint Paul, the only team you need to see is the Saint Paul Saints. The Saints are not affiliated with Major League Baseball.

They are part of the North Division of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. I dare you to say that 10x fast. Going to a St Paul Saints Game is an example of baseball at its finest. Here is all you need to know about your first game at CHS Field.

All About the Saint Paul Saints

What is CHS Field?

CHS Field is the home of the St. Paul Saints Baseball Club. It is a ballpark located in the Lowertown neighborhood of St. Paul, Minnesota, and was opened in 2015.

What are the features of CHS Field?

CHS Field’s features include a grass surface, a unique LED video display system, a beautiful venue, and the left-field picnic lawn. It also includes the Securian Club, a regional ballpark favorite, and a memory lane that honors iconic moments and individuals throughout the history of Saints baseball.

When was CHS Field built?

CHS Field was built in 2015.

What the Heck is the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball?

The league started out as a minor league for larger cities in 1902. They included the St. Paul Apostles and the Minneapolis Millers, along with other Midwest teams.

They introduced players like Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. Over the years, teams left to join up with the Major League.

In 2005, they re-grouped and formed the new association with other Midwestern teams, TX and Winnipeg.

Of all the different teams in the league, the St. Paul Saints have doubled, if not triple, the crowds of all the other teams in the league. Going to the game, you’ll know why.

Is Bill Murray really an owner?

The Saint Paul Saints have a few different owners in the mix, but the most recognized name is Bill Murray. He has been with the team since its inception in 1993.

His official title is Team Psychologist, but to my knowledge, he doesn’t have a Ph.D. Mr. Murray is a jack of all trades, doing things like coaching the bases, boosting morale, and train spotting.

Of course, Bill’s a busy man and won’t be at all the games. But you can bet when he’s in town, he most defiantly swings by a game and helps.

Saint Paul Saints: Game Day

With so much going on on game day, it is hard to know where to start. If you get there early, I recommend starting off with a little tailgating. If you aren’t prepared, don’t worry, there is always a party happening in front of the field.

Can you Tailgate at CHS Field?

The Saints have a designated tailgating lot at Lafayette St, and Prince St just off Kellogg Blvd. Parking is $8 and fans can bring in grills, food, and drinks. Even better, you can reserve a parking spot ahead of time on the Saints website.

Not sure where to tailgate? Take a brewery tour before the game! Bitter Minnesota Brewery Tours has some great adventures to check out and take out all the stress.

City Of Baseball Museum

If you have some time to kill before the game starts, stop in to see the City of Baseball Museum located inside CHS Field along the Third Base side. It’s free and air-conditioned! Those are really just small perks compared to what’s inside.

Any fan of baseball will love getting to see the memorabilia from the past leagues. It shocked me to see how much baseball has been part of Minnesota’s History.

Love museums? You gotta check out the Over 28 other Free Museums in the Twin Cities.

Who are some of the team’s most famous players?

The St Paul Saints have seen a large number of big name players come through their ranks, either before or after their careers. here are some of the most notable names:

  1. Darryl Strawberry – former New York Mets and Yankees star who played for the Saints in 1996 and 1997.
  2. Kevin Millar – former Boston Red Sox first baseman who played for the Saints in 2010.
  3. Ila Borders – the first woman to play in a men’s professional baseball league, played for the Saints in 1997 and 1998.
  4. Jack Morris – former Minnesota Twins pitcher and Hall of Famer, played for the Saints in 1996.
  5. Mark Hamburger – former Major League pitcher who played for the Saints from 2013 to 2016 and set several team records.
  6. J.D. Drew – former Major League outfielder who played for the Saints in 1998 before being called up to the St. Louis Cardinals.

In Game Entertainment

The St. Paul Saints Games have a reputation for being a lot of fun… With games and other activities to keep the game going in-between innings.

The Saints have changed the way Minnesotans enjoy baseball. They have a team of people dedicated to entertaining the crowds. This goes beyond the normal furry mascot. Don’t worry, they have a pig named Mudonna to fill that role.

These amazing group of entertainers break out during the game and in-between innings to keep you engaged. Think of what the Twins do with and times it by nine. These entertainers are out in the stands with you acting like cheerleaders.

If you get a chance, visit on a special event night. We attended the Disco Premonition Night. They were celebrating disco all night long and paying homage to a time 40 years ago when one owner ran a death to disco promotion for a Chicago White Sox game. Fans were supposed to bring their disco records to be blown up in between a doubleheader.

Well, things got a little out of control and they had to forfeit the second game because a group of peace-loving hippies stormed the field. For the Saints, they show their love of disco and hosted a post-game dance party on the field for everyone in attendance. Keep an eye out for events like this throughout the season!

CHS Field offers a wide range of food and beverages, including the infamous “Shatter Dome” concrete custard, ham-wrapped cheese curds, and a regional favorite, Juicy Lucy.

The St Paul Saints have a bunch of different food choices that will make your mouth water. Each concession stand has its own theme, but they also all have classic favorites, like chicken fingers and hot dogs.

We even found Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and Chicago Dogs. Everything tasted as good as it smelled. The Saints do not allow outside food or beverages. The only exception is a sealed bottle of water.

One thing you have to take advantage of while you are at the game is having your food delivered to your seat. On their app, they have the option of buying things like beers, sodas, and light snacks like candies.

Just put in your seat number and wait for a friendly face to run it down to you. Now you don’t have an excuse to run out of beer.

It was $10 a spot and right next to the field.
