The St. Paul Saints are a professional baseball team based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, in the United States. The Saints are a member of the North Division of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. Since the 1993 season to the present, the Saints have played their home games at Midway Stadium. Founded in 1993, today’s Saints were a Northern League team through 2005. In 2006 the team was a founding member of the modern American Association. The majority owner is Marvin Goldklang who also owns a stake in five other minor league baseball teams throughout the country (Fort Myers Miracle, Sioux Falls Canaries, Hudson Valley Renegades, Charleston RiverDogs and Brockton Rox).
The current inception of the St. Paul Saints were formed in 1993 in the Northern League, one of several independent leagues not affiliated with Major League Baseball. The Saints are known for promotions that are over-the-top even by the standards of minor league baseball. The principal owner, Mike Veeck, is the son of legendary Major League owner Bill Veeck, who was best-known for outrageous promotions as owner of the St. Louis Browns, Cleveland Indians, and Chicago White Sox. Comedian and actor Bill Murray is also a part owner.
Despite the considerable naysaying at their inception, the Saints have been one of the most successful teams in the Northern League and all of independent baseball. In 2002-2004, the Saints saw severely reduced attendance, owing partially to renewed interest in the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball, who won the 2002, 2003, and 2004 American League Central Division championships. In spite of an initially cool, if not outright hostile reception, the Saints and their Major League neighbor (less than 10 miles away) have worked together for several years in hopes of increasing support for the sport of baseball.
The Saints have figured prominently in the creation of modern independent baseball. They were featured in a couple books (“Rebel Baseball” by Steve Perlstein, 1993; “Slouching Toward Fargo” by Neal Karlen, 1998) and a cable network series (“Baseball, Minnesota,” FX Network, 1996-97). Mike Veeck wrote a book that covered the mantra “Fun is Good” (2005) and describes the business approach he has used for many years.

In a tradition started in the team’s first year, the Saints pig brings out game balls and receives a snack between innings.
A major factor in the continued success of the Saints in the face of the Twins’ presence is the fact that Midway Stadium, the Saints’ home field, is an open-air facility; many Twins fans have bemoaned the unfairness of being forced to go indoors to watch a baseball game on a warm Minnesota summer evening. Another is the love of tailgating by fans in the Twin Cities metropolitan area – the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, situated in the middle of downtown Minneapolis, has little space available for tailgating.
On September 29, 2005, the Saints left the Northern League, along with the Lincoln Saltdogs, Sioux City Explorers, and the Sioux Falls Canaries to start the American Association for the 2006 season.
St. Paul Saints (1884-1899)
As described in Lee Allen’s book, The American League Story (Putnam, 1962), the team began as the Sioux City franchise in a minor league called the Western League. The WL had reorganized itself in November, 1893, with Ban Johnson as President. Johnson, a Cincinnati-based reporter, had been recommended by his friend Charles Comiskey, former major league star with the St. Louis Browns in the 1880s, who was then managing the Cincinnati Reds. After the 1894 season, when Comiskey’s contract with the Reds was up, he decided to take his chances at ownership. He bought the Sioux City team and transferred it to St. Paul, where it enjoyed some success over the next 5…(and so on) To get More information , you can visit some products about professional nail art, led curtain, .
