The St. Paul Saints knew how important year number five was in their beautiful Lowertown ballpark, CHS Field.  With even more competition in the Twin Cities than ever before, the Saints knew they needed to step their game up to the next level.  They did that with attendance that continues to be well over capacity, a highly successful All-Star Game, a state-of-the-art City of Baseball Museum and brand new SPIRE Sun Deck, promotions that were talked about from coast-to-coast, and a ballpark that continues to be a destination for everything from the Saints to a Cat Video Festival.  One man has overseen it all and because of all that continued success Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Derek Sharrer, along with Cleburne Railroaders Director of Operations Josh Robertson, was named American Association Executive of the Year for the fifth straight season.

During Sharrer’s tenure with the Saints they have consistently finished at, or near, the top of the league in attendance.  In 2006 the Saints were named the inaugural Baseball America Independent League Organization of the Year, for their history of excellence and role as trailblazers in the industry.  Additionally, Sharrer was named to the 2007 Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Top 40 under Forty.  In 2018 Sharrer was included in Minnesota Magazine’s 500 Most Powerful Business Leaders and earlier this year he was named as one of Twin Cities Business Magazine’s “100 People You Should Know.”
