Fans line up for tickets at new St. Paul Saints stadium


The St. Paul Saints are ready to show off their new digs, and fans lined up early for a shot at game tickets in the new ballpark, called CHS Field.

Individual game tickets for the upcoming season went on sale Saturday. The new Lowertown ballpark seats about 7,000, according to the Pioneer Press.

Fans who showed up Saturday also got to tour the new stadium.

Opening Day seats are pretty much gone, but a team spokesperson tells MPR standing-room only seats and grass spots will be available closer to game day.

Tailgating might also be allowed, but the Saints are still working out the details.

Construction of the ballpark is 95 percent complete and should be ready for opening day on May 21. The Saints will play an exhibition game on May 18.
