The Minnesota Cricket Assoc: http://www.minnesotacricket.com/ has seen the Gillette building re-use concept. They like it!  Their schedule could accommodate the Saints and other regularly scheduled activities in a Lowertown ballpark.  Fort Lauderdale, FL is the only city with a major stadium for its regional Cricket league.  Minnesota's Cricket league is now 30 teams strong.

Below the Gillette building re-use site plan concept, and the FL Cricket field. Conversion of the Saints ballfield into a Cricket field (150x130 yard oval) can be done in a short amount of time.

We continue to encourage Mayor Coleman to expand the City's vision for what could occur on the Lowertown ballpark site: a unique multiple-use, year-round attraction for Minnesota's Capital City.
