Actor and compedian Bill Murray, a part-owner of the St. Paul Saints, attended the game while we were there. I got a few shots including one during batting practice. Apparently he and now Sen.-elect Al Franken were there the next day.
More to come from the Saints game.
Also I’m going up North today for a few days over the Fourth of July, so I’ll try to work on some stuff up there to get ready to go online.
St. Paul Saints pitcher Mitch Wylie during a game against the Sioux Falls Canaries on June 23, 2009. Wylie pitched six innings, giving up just three runs, all in the first two innings, while striking out six batters. Wylie improved his record to 5–2 with the win.
St. Paul Saints outfielder Jacob Butler celebrates with first-base coach Charlie Ruud after Butler hit his second of two home runs of the inning as part of an 11-run bottom-of-the-sixth for the Saints. The Saints beat the Sioux Falls Canaries 12–3, in part due to Butlers 5 RBI, on June 23 at Midway Stadium in Saint Paul. In celebration of Minnesota’s history in the Negro Leagues, both teams donned uniforms of past Negro League teams. The Saints wore the uniform of the Homestead (Penn.) Grays while the Canaries donned the uniform of the Newark (N.J.) Eagles.
