Saints head to new ballpark, bring along the old charm

Mike Veeck was standing in the nearly finished club level of the St. Paul Saints’ nearly finished new Lowertown ballpark, CHS Field, when he was asked his favorite feature. He pointed through the floor-to-ceiling windows toward the downtown Farmers Market just across the street.

“We wanted to make downtown, the Farmers Market, the star,” said Veeck, president and co-owner of the independent baseball team.

Well, that AND the urinals — there are more in just one of the ballpark’s five men’s restrooms than in all of Midway Stadium, the Saints’ old home near the State Fairgrounds.
