St. Paul Saints to share new ballpark with Hamline

July 31, 2014
Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Paul Saints will share a new regional ballpark with the Hamline University baseball team.

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Hamline President Linda Hanson on Wednesday announced a 25-year partnership agreement between the city of St. Paul and the university.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/WQb0mN) reports the deal gives the Pipers their own team clubhouse at the new Lowertown Ballpark.

The "preferred partnership" arrangement makes Hamline the second-most visible tenant at the $63 million, city-owned ballpark after the independent league Saints. The Pipers clubhouse will be the third on site, neighboring the Saints clubhouse and a second clubhouse for visiting teams.

The 7,000-seat ballpark is scheduled to open next year. Hamline is expected to play more than a dozen games each year at the ballpark.
