Community Blog Post
Go "Behind the Voice" with Sean Aronson “Babies for everyone!” was one of St. Paul Saints broadcaster Sean Aronson’s more memorable calls during the 2016 season.

A Glimpse Into the Life of an Official Scorer

Community Blog Post
A Glimpse Into the Life of an Official Scorer “How is that a hit?” Most baseball fans have said this after the scoreboard flashes the result on a sharp grounder or botched fly ball.

Arizona is nice because all of the teams are within about 20 minutes of Phoenix and if you fly out of MSP you have a few options on airlines. The main thing I didn’t like about the Phoenix area is that you wil...
