  • St. Paul Saints pay tribute to Senator Craig

    Yes, they even gave him his own bobblefoot.

    You've heard of the bobblehead doll that baseball teams love to hand out to fans. So how about a bobblefoot?
    The St. Paul Saints are putting their own twist on the popular promotion, in a nod to one of the most notorious Minnesota stories of last year.
    At Sunday's game, they'll give 2,500 fans a miniature bathroom stall with a pair of lower legs and feet - one of which is springloaded so that it taps. (image, right; full photo here)

          with a promotion like that, I'd be willing to bet they do

          Upon further review.....yes, they do own the team

          from wiki:

          The current inception of the St. Paul Saints were formed in 1993 in the Northern League, one of several independent leagues not affiliated with Major League Baseball. The Saints are known for promotions that are over-the-top even by the standards of minor league baseball. The principal owner, Mike Veeck, is the son of legendary Major League owner Bill Veeck, who was best-known for outrageous promotions as owner of the St. Louis Browns, Cleveland Indians, and Chicago White Sox. Comedian and actor Bill Murray is also a part owner.
