After $64.7 million spent, 7,000 seats installed and a crap-load of soil pollution clean up, the St. Paul Saints are playing in their new home. We hear the views are great, the Summit is flowing and fans are enjoying the fruits of their tax dollars and nearly two years of labor.
It felt like a long wait. But thanks to a cool time-lapse video put together by Ryan Companies and Work Zone Cam, you can watch CHS Field being built in about a minute, set to a soothing instrumental track.
The video documents the Lowertown ballpark's erection from August 2013 to May 2015 -- from foundation to first pitch. Watch it and think about how you didn't have to lift a finger the next time you're sipping beer in the bleacher seats.Work Zone Cam
