St. Paul Saints consider hurricane relief fundraiser for Charleston, South Carolina

Updated: September 02, 2019 10:43 PM

In South Carolina, Hurricane Dorian forced the Charleston RiverDogs to cancel their last game of the season Monday after a mandatory evacuation order.

The minor league baseball team has a close connection to the Saint Paul Saints because they're both owned by actor Bill Murray.

The Saints are considering holding a fundraiser at their playoff game on Saturday to show support for their sister team and the people of Charleston.

"We'll wait and watch and see how things go in Charleston, and certainly, if we can do something with our home game on Saturday, we will do so to try to help raise awareness and maybe even some funds to send down towards the American Red Cross and help the Charleston area," St. Paul Saints General Manager Derek Sharrer said. 

The Saints will decide later later this week if they will hold a fundraiser during Saturday night's playoff game.
