Crispin Iceball: Saturday, January 30 at 11:00 a.m.

Filed under: Authors, Event, MHS press, Nonprofit, Sports — pennefesm @ 11:36 am

Bundle up! It’s a spirited game of “iceball”–or outdoor baseball in the middle of winter, all for a good cause–with the folks at Crispin Natural Hard Cider and the St. Paul Saints. This chilly good time features the St. Paul Saints in a benefit game for Second Harvest Heartland. Admission is free; however, donations are encouraged: for each $1 donated, Second Harvest Heartland will distribute more than $9 worth of grocery products for those in need. Along with money and nonperishable food, fans are also encouraged to bring warm jackets and clothing that will be collected by Joseph’s Coats. Last year’s event raised $20,000, and the game-time temperature was in the single digits. At 11 am, a tailgating party will ensue, and around noon fans will be invited to sample recipes which will be judged by the culinary experts of theheavytable.com. Also during the tailgate, stay warm by dancing about to the stellar sounds of Romantica and the Spectaculars. Family fun, baseball, Crispin Hard Cider, and do-goodery all in one shot! Tailgating starts on Saturday at 11 a.m., and the first pitch is at 1:30 p.m. For more info visit http://www.saintsbaseball.com/. (via secretsofthecity.com)
