St. Paul Saints Baseball Club
Our take: The St. Paul Saints minor league baseball team has regularly held sponsor nights for faith groups and has changed up its brand to recognize the event. For Jewish Heritage Night, it printed up T-shirts that had the word, Saints, spelled in Hebrew. This season the ball club reached out to atheists set to hold a convention there in August and some faith groups find the game nights theme offensive.
A Minnesota minor league baseball team will be changing its name as part of an atheist-themed event set to take place in August.
The St. Paul Saints will change their name to "Mr. Paul Aints" as part of "A Night of Unbelievable Fun," which will be sponsored by the American Atheists and Minnesota Atheists organizations.
For the baseball game featured, the Saints will wear different jerseys with the alternate name and the S in Saints will be covered up across the Midway Stadium ballpark.
