ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A time capsule will be placed in the St. Paul Saints’ new Lowertown ballpark.

Representatives from the city of St. Paul, the Saints and the amateur baseball community gather Wednesday to seal memorabilia in the time capsule, which will be placed at CHS Field.

Among the items are memorabilia signed by St. Paul baseball greats Paul Molitor, Dave Winfield, Jack Morris and Joe Mauer; a sampling of St. Paul Saints giveaways: and a ceremonial baseball bat sledgehammer used to kick off demolition of the former Gillette factory where the new ballpark is located.

The time capsule will be sealed until 2065, 50 years after CHS Field opens.

In addition to the Saints, CHS Field also will be home to amateur baseball. The new ballpark is scheduled to open in 2015.
