Twins, Saints offer 2-for-1 deal
Minneapolis Star Tribune, MN - Apr 9, 2003
Relations between the Minnesota Twins and the St. Paul Saints have come a long way since 1993.

For you do-it-yourself types out there, the first chance to see major and minor league baseball in Kansas City on the same day is June 29th. The Royals will be hosting the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:05 PM, while the T-Bones take on the Gary Southshore RailCats at 5:05 PM.
