Atheist Night at New CHS Field – Leave Your Soles at the Gate

Published by MNA on

Minnesota Atheists is teaming up with Foundation Beyond Belief this year for the 4th annual “Atheist Night” minor league baseball game in St. Paul, MN on Saturday, August 8. This year’s game will be played in the St. Paul Saints’ brand new downtown stadium, CHS Field! It’s billed as Leave Your Soles at the Gate because we’re asking fans to bring new or gently used shoes for donation to those in need.

Just like previous years, the home team players will wear secularized “Mr. Paul Aints” jerseys featuring the scarlet atheist “A”. Our banners will hang throughout the stadium and the “S” in “Saints” signs will be covered. There will also be new atheist-themed antics between innings added to the unbelievably fun evening.

The shoes we collect will be delivered by volunteers from Minnesota Atheists to Soles4Souls which is a secular 501c3 nonprofit “dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.”

There are two group sections available for ticket purchase at (password: soles)

  • $10 – General Admission + St. Paul Saints hat (SOLD OUT)
  • $20 – Infidel Section (Infield Reserved) + St. Paul Saints hat (SOLD OUT)
  • UPDATE: Standing Room Only tickets are available now, and Berm Seating (on the grassy patch behind left-center field) will be available the day of the game beginning at 10am. 

Game time is 7pm but we’ll be partying by 4pm in the tailgate parking lot on Prince Street two blocks southeast of CHS Field, and six short blocks from the Union Depot station on the Green Line. Be sure to check out the good deals we’re offering on Mr. Paul Aints t-shirts and hats! All proceeds benefit Minnesota Atheists.
