CHS Field, St. Paul Saints

While attending youth and amateur baseball games has been no problem for Minnesotans hoping to hear the crack of the bat in person, fans are not allowed at Twins games and the St. Paul Saints have been playing their "home" games in Sioux Falls to start the season. 

But that changes for the Saints as they have been cleared to return to St. Paul, where CHS Field will be allowed to accommodate limited attendance for home games starting August 4, the team announced Thursday

Eighteen home games remain on the Saints' schedule and CHS Field will be allowed to host a maximum of 1,500 fans in six areas around the ballpark with no more than 25% capacity in an area during each game – and no area can exceed 250 people. The six areas will include: 

  • Reserved and socially distanced seating within those areas
  • Each area will have an exclusive entrance
  • Each area will have exclusive restroom facilities
  • Each area will have exclusive concession facilities
  • Masks will be required for visitors throughout their time at CHS Field, but can be removed while seated and/or eating and drinking
  • Concourse will be stanchioned to provide exclusive space for fans in each distinct area

Ticket-buyers will be communicated with through email, text and phone before the game begins, with the Saints providing specific instructions on where to park and enter the ballpark based on where seats are located.

The team's full COVID-19 readiness plan can be found here.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. August 1. 

CHS Field's maximum capacity during normal times is 7,210.
