ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Paul Saints have chosen Anoka for a townball game this spring.
The Saints, in conjunction with Killebrew Root Beer and North Lake Brewing, will play an exhibition game May 10 to help promote and raise money for the northern Twin Cities suburb.
The Saints will take on the Anoka Bucs/Metro-Minny All-Stars at Castle Field in Anoka.
The All-Star team will be made up of the best players in the league from 10 teams — Blaine, Coon Rapids, East Bethel, Big Lake, Forest Lake, Champlin, St. Francis, Hamel, Isanti and Ramsey.
Gates open at noon with batting practice for the two teams going from 12:30-1:45 p.m. A home run-hitting contest between the two teams takes place at 1:50 p.m. The nine-inning game starts at 3 p.m.
