Sports teams have been holding faith and family nights for many years, but in 2012 the St. Paul Saints became the first ever professional sports team to feature atheists night in what was billed “A Night of Unbelievable Fun” (sponsored by Minnesota Atheists and American Atheists). Even though the morning show hosts at Fox & Friends told their viewers to pray for a rainout it turned out to be a beautiful, sunny evening.
Never afraid to embrace controversy, the St. Paul Saints partnered with Minnesota Atheists for another unbelievable night in 2013 and then again last year. The fourth consecutive year of atheist-sponsored baseball continues on August 8 when the secularized Mr. Paul Aints play at the brand new CHS Field in downtown St. Paul. The Saints’ assistant general manager, Scott Bush will join us May 17 at the Roseville Library to talk about how the experience has been from his perspective and he will share updates about what to look forward to this year.
Scott first joined the Saints organization as an intern while attending the University of Minnesota in 2004. Following his graduation in 2005, Scott’s career began with the Fresno Grizzlies of the Pacific Coast League and the Stockton Ports of the California League. While in Stockton, Scott oversaw the California League – Carolina League All-Star Game and once forgot to inform the rest of the front office staff of a C-130 flyover.
Scott returned to the Saints in 2008 as the Director of Corporate Sales. In 2010, he left the organization for other opportunities, something now referred to as a “hiatus.” He began his third stint in his current role as Assistant General Manager in 2012 and oversees the organization’s marketing and corporate sales departments.
