ST. PAUL - The Saint Paul City Council gave the green light to the Saint Paul Saints new Lowertown ballpark.
Members voted unanimously to approve an extra 9-million dollars for the project.
The extra funds were needed after tests revealed contaminated soil.
First pitch in the new park is expected in 2015.
