While Minneapolis will be hosting the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, St. Paul will be hosting the more affordable—and probably more fun—2014 MN Atheists/FFRF Atheist Game across the river!
For the 3rd year in a row the Minnesota Atheists organization is taking over Midway Stadium and secularizing the St. Paul Saints to the Mr. Paul Aints. There will again be atheist-themed shenanigans between innings, including a “Doubting Thomas” who will likely be unconvinced of the umpire’s calls. The players will wear specialized jerseys with the Mr. Paul Aints logo, and these jerseys will be auctioned off during the game.
The Aints are hoping to get their first win this year, which will be a little bit more special since this is the last year that the team will play at Midway Stadium. The game against Kansas City will begin at 7pm on Friday, July 11 which is when the weekend-long All-Star Fest begins in Minneapolis (the All-Star game is on the following Tuesday). Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, this game will be unbelievably fun—as will the pre-game tailgating which begins at 4:30 at Midway Stadium’s parking lot.
Stick around the beautiful, secularized city of Mr. Paul on Saturday because we’ll be holding an All-Star Conference.
The Ticket Portal is now Open! Go to SaintsGroups.com and enter the passsword: "Atheists" to sit with your fellow atheists! There are two ticket options:
• $22 for an infield reserved ticket with a Mr. Paul Aints Hat.
• $12 for a general admission ticket with a free Hot Dog & Soda.
(a RSVP on Meetup only does not get you into the game, but you're welcome to participate in the tailgating outside the stadium regardless of whether you have a ticket or not)
