St. Paul Saints to attempt world record pillow fight


It should come as no surprise that a baseball team with a pig mascot named Pablo Pigasso is throwing a huge pillow fight at an upcoming game.

The St. Paul Saints will attempt to break the world record for largest pillow fight during tonight's game at CHS Field in St. Paul. Eight-thousand pillows will be provided to fans and actor Stephen Baldwin will get the fight started at the end of the second inning.

The Guinness World Record pillow fight was set last year when 4,201 people ruffled each other's feathers at a South Dakota State University football game, according to Sports Illustrated.

The 8,000 pillows are being provided by My Pillow – a company based in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Per KARE 11, Baldwin, who will emcee the event, is friends with My Pillow founder Michael Lindell.

As for baseball, the Saints are really good this season. With a record of 43-13 they lead their division in the Independent League by 18.5 games.
