Take a look at a few photos from the Saints playing the amateur town team Owatonna Aces and the Southern Minny All Stars.
Saints won 4-0.
Killebrew Root Beer Sponsored the game, as this was our 5th year of setting this ‘barnstorming’ game as a fundraising opportunity for the local athletics in each town.
Owatonna did an excellent job with this game. Not only did the Owatonna / Southern Minny all-star team play solid baseball against the St. Paul Saints, but the community turned out in full force with over 1000 people buying tickets to be part of this event.
A Killebrew Root Beer ‘tip of the cap’ to Mayor Tom Kuntz, Tim Truelson, and over 100 volunteers to make this game fun and successful!
Killebrew Root Beer is proud to be a part of this event!
In 2012 the Killebrew Root Beer sponsored Professional Scouts Hall Of Fame in Ft. Myers – inducted Dan Jennings with a plaque at Hammond Stadium. He was very appreciative of the award and grateful to the sponsorship with The Ft. Myers Miracle and Killebrew Root Beer.
In 2013 Dan Jennings was named the General Manager of the Florida Marlins.
Fast-forward to 2015 – with the firing of former Minnesota Twins catcher, Mike Redmond as manager of the Marlins, Dan Jennings now has two high profile jobs with the Marlins. Dan is now the Field Manager and the General manager of the MLB team.
I think he will need a Killebrew Root Beer to enjoy the moment, as he will be a busy guy this summer.
Special Thanks to Angie Craven for sharing a photo of her 6th grade Communications & Language Arts at Century Middle School (Lakeville).
Ms. Craven presented a class project to the group, and when it was properly accomplished they enjoyed a prize of Killebrew Root Beer for a project well done.
ST. PAUL, MN (April 22, 2015) – The St. Paul Saints first game in the state of Minnesota for the 2015 season won’t be a final farewell at Midway Stadium. It won’t be in their beautiful new home, CHS Field. Nope, instead they will continue a tradition that began back in 2008, taking their show on the road. The Saints, in conjunction with Killebrew Root Beer, will play an exhibition game in Owatonna to help promote and raise money for the area.
For the eighth consecutive season the Saints will play an exhibition game in a neighboring Minnesota community on a field known for its townball teams. On Saturday, May 16 at 3:10 p.m. the Saints will take on the Owatonna Aces/Southern Minny All-Stars at Dartt’s Park in Owatonna, MN presented by Killebrew Root Beer. The field is located at 429 Mineral Springs Rd & 600 Cherry St in Owatonna. The All-Star team will consist of the best players in the league from 14 different teams (Austin, Hayfield, Kasson, Mound, Northfield, Pine Island, Plainview-Elgin-Millville, Rochester, Stewartville-Racine, Tri-County, Wanamingo, Waseca, Winona, Zumbrota).
“Killebrew Root Beer is excited to be hosting the game in Owatonna on May 16th,” said Jim Lundeen – President of Killebrew Beverages and RJM Distributing. “It will feature amateur all-stars taking on the independent pro ballplayers representing the St. Paul Saints. This is our fifth year celebrating town ball and we enjoy doing so in partnership with the Saints. We are proud to help highlight the great baseball traditions in communities around the state of Minnesota and help raise the much needed funds to keep their fields and programs going strong.”
Gates open at noon with batting practice for the two teams going from 12:30 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. Kids in attendance will be allowed to stretch on the field with the Saints players. A home run hitting contest between the two teams will take place at 2:00 p.m. and the nine inning contest begins promptly at 3:10 p.m.
The game against the Owatonna Aces/Southern Minny All-Stars will help raise money for their field, concessions and restroom facilities. During the game there will be a raffle, prizes given away, a silent auction and activities for the kids.
Tickets for this special exhibition game are $7 in advance and $10 at the gate and can be purchased by calling 507-444-4321, on line at http://ci.owatonna.mn.us/parksrecreation or at Owatonna Parks and Recreation Center, 540 West Hills Circle in Owatonna.
Killebrew Root Beer is very pleased to assist the Robbinsdale Little League, and we wish to compliment the dedicated parents and volunteers for building the youth baseball program.
Killebrew Root Beer territory has many programs similar to Robbinsdale – where the parents and volunteers are working to educate, promote, and create positive competition for our young people.
A tip of the hat to the Robbinsdale Little League and all of the other towns and communities working toward continuous improvements!
Killebrew Root Beer was invited to tour the almost completed CHS stadium with the St. Paul Saints General Manager Derek Sharrer. Derek is very happy to have the opportunity to work for a great Saints organization, and work at such an excellent facility.
The Saints fans will be pleased with the amazing sight lines and comfortable amenities.
Take a look below at the beautiful new locker room where the Saints players will prepare for home games at CHS Stadium

These young folks are enjoying the warm(er) weather during the 2015 Arctic Plunge along with the Killebrew Root Beer.
Another good turnout and solid results for the Arctic Plunge fundraising effort. The funds raised will be used to assist multiple Isanti area non-profit organizations. These local non-profit groups work tirelessly, and their efforts are most always helping folks needing a boost.
The 2015 Arctic Plunge was hosted by Killebrew Root Beer and KQRS. Our appreciation goes out to all of the jumpers who jumped into Long Lake and also to the many levels of sponsors sharing their VIP tent area with family, friends, and clients.
Here a couple photos of the St. Paul Saints mascot Mudonna promoting the Killebrew Root Beer sponsored baseball game between the Saints and the Owatonna Aces.
Mudonna was a ‘hit’ with the young people attending the spring sports registration day in Owatonna.
As a result of Mudonna’s appearance at this event, tickets sales are now moving forward for the May 16th game.
Tickets available at Owatonna Parks & Recreation Office

We are hoping for an early spring and getting back to watching Local baseball again. Killebrew Root beer is again sponsoring a St. Paul Saints barnstorming game. This years game will be held in Owatonna, with the local town team Owatonna Aces playing against the Saints on Saturday May 16.
We love to see the kids enjoying Killebrew Root Beer! The Radisson Blu Hotel in Bloomington is one of the many places you can find and enjoy Killebrew Root Beer
