ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The St. Paul Saints have said their last goodbye to venerable Midway Stadium, their home since their inception in 1993.

The Saints lost their independent league game in the American Association to the Winnipeg Goldeyes on Thursday night, but they set a franchise record with an attendance figure of 9,455. Actor, comedian and minority owner Bill Murray was part of the crowd.

The Saints finished with a 573-426 record at the stadium, which will be torn down soon so the site can be redeveloped for industrial use. The Saints will move to a new downtown ballpark, opening for the 2015 season.
