Friday August 21 was Killebrew Root Beer night at CHS Field with the Saints playing the Sioux Falls Canaries, winning 5-2.
Killebrew Root Beer was proud to present this Professional Scouts Hall of Fame to 2015 inductee Mike Arbuckle, with the Kansas City Royals. Mr. Arbuckle has been a professional baseball scout for the Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, as well as the Kansas city Royals. Mike now has 5 World Series rings (Atlanta 2, Philadelphia 2, and Kansas City 1).
Mike has been involved with the signing of exceptional talent for his baseball organizations with the names like Cole Hamels, Jimmy Rollins, and Ryan Howard.
Killebrew Root Beer is very proud to be a sponsor for this select group of hard working professional baseball scouts.

This was taken during the annual Willow River Days festivities. You can find Killebrew Root Beer and Killebrew Cream Soda almost everywhere.
Try Dave’s Pro Shop in Willow River – next time you are at the 35W and Willow River exit.

Killebrew Photo – Rum river Bandits town team baseball with their Killebrew Root Beer night. Pictured is Tom Koplitz (manager of the Rum River Bandits) and he is enjoying the Killebrew Root Beer float with Stan Peterson (manager of the Quamba Cubs town team).
Over 115 FREE Killebrew Root Beer Floats were handed out to a great crowd at the Rum River Bandits (Cambridge, MN area team).
The home team Bandits came away with a 15-2 victory, re-claiming the Old Black Bat that has been housed in Quamba for over a year.
The Minnesota congressional delegation is lobbying for Harmon to be featured on an upcoming U.S. postage stamp. The delegation came together to send a letter urging the USPS Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee to honor the Hall of Famer not only for his storied career on the field, but most importantly for his selflessness and giving character off the field.
The delegation writes: “Mr. Killebrew’s legacy on and off the field exemplifies the best of Minnesota as well as the best of our nation. We are proud of such an exemplary role model for current and future generations, and see this stamp as an important way of preserving the legacy of Harmon Killebrew.”
Join the efforts in carrying on Harmon’s legacy by signing the petition! And just for signing, you could win a year’s worth of Killebrew Root Beer!
Kyle Gibson recently did a Twitter Tuesday segment with FSN’s Marney Gellner and he enjoyed Killebrew Root Beer during the segment. He even stated that because of Killebrew Root Beer, he’s got 99 problems, but thirst ain’t one. Thanks, Kyle!
Baseball is here!
Another Killebrew function with the Saints. The Killebrew Root Beer K-Man of the game.
Please note the large Killebrew Root Beer and Cream Soda sign just above the Killebrew Root Beer seat next to the bullpen areas, and right below the video / scoreboard.
If the selected Killebrew Root Beer K-Man of the game strikes out during the selected game, the fans in attendance will receive a coupon for a free Killebrew Root Beer or Killebrew Cream Soda at any Festival Foods grocery markets in the Twin Cities.
Festival Foods has partnered with Killebrew Root Beer and are hoping that the Saints pitchers strike out the K- Man of the game – allowing for many of these coupons to be handed out post game – as you exit the stadium to head home.
Killebrew Root Beer and Cream Soda would like to thank the excellent staff at Festival Foods for this partnership.
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.
