The St. Paul Saints entered Minnesota in 1992 and played their first game in 1993. Many thought this plucky little organization wouldn’t last past that first year. The “little engine that could,” however, has brought millions of people joy, laughter, and long-lasting memories. Take a journey through the past 25 years of the St. Paul Saints and see how they became one of the most successful minor league baseball teams of all time.

"For the Fun of the Game captures perfectly the essence, history and heartbeat of the St. Paul Saints. Season ticket holders and casual fans alike will love the inside story of a tradition that started 25 years ago at Midway and will continue for a long time in Lowertown."

"For the fan in me that has been around since 1993, I felt like the movie was a video yearbook of my last quarter of the century following the St. Paul Saints. It reminded me of the last episode of The Office when the staff was so impressed with how good the film makers were with capturing the key moments of their lives. Lynn, during the Q&A session, said that this was a project he came up with in 2016. In a span of one year, he produced a gem. For anyone that's a Saints fan, either from the start in 1993 or joined in at some point of the team's existence, this will be a very informative and enjoyable documentary."

"Do you love baseball? Do you know what it takes to build a team from the ground up? These questions are answered in this spellbinding documentary that shows how the passion and love of baseball takes founder Mike Veeck from starting a minor league franchise to league championships. From an old sold out stadium to a new downtown sold out stadium filled with adoring fans having fun watching baseball in its purest form. The Saints story unfolds through interviews with the team’s founders, the players, and those that said it would never work. It has now worked for 25 years. This is a fascinating story about building a franchise and winning games and having fun. For the fans going to a Saints game is more than watching good baseball. It is an experience the Saints create through colorful characters, fan interaction and an atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else. This is a unique blend of storytelling, baseball and fun."
