Our Story...

In 2010, a small group of loyal Twins fans and cigar-lovers, had an idea…
“Let’s have a Twins tailgate party and smoke some cigars with a bunch of friends!”
What started as a tailgate party, grew exponentially and five separate “Cigar Herfs” were held, each welcoming over 100 cigar aficionados.

Nearby restaurants, the liquor industry, and local breweries offered to donate. With their kindness, our cigar party became a major fundraiser for the Minnesota Miracle Leagues. We now had a new purpose, and a new reason to expand.

In 2013, we went public. The First Annual Cigars & Baseball hosted over 300 attendees. Now, instead of just one cigar, ticket holders received SEVEN premium cigars. We welcomed food samples from metro area restaurants, plenty of drink options, live music, and an opportunity to bid on some cigar-lover’s favorite items at our silent auction. 

And for 2023, we’re excited to be back at CHS Field!

So, Why "Baseball"?

Cigars & Baseball started out 13 years ago as a tailgate party for a Twins game. 

When you purchase a ticket to Cigars & Baseball, you’re not just gaining entry to Minnesota’s largest cigar party! You’re also helping to ensure that children with disabilities have the same opportunities as their peers, to enjoy the game of baseball. 

All of the proceeds from this event will be used to maintain Minnesota’s Miracle League fields, which are made of custom-designed, rubberized turf that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices, while helping to prevent injuries. These special fields eliminate the barriers that keep kids off the baseball field and allow them to experience the joy of America’s favorite past time—baseball!

Live Entertainment


A native of Minneapolis, Nate Amor has been plying his trade since 2001. As a singer-songwriter he released three albums beginning with Long Five Days in 2001. Since then he has been featured on NBC’s The Voice, , has shared the stage with Train, Mat Kearney, and Marc Cohn. He is also a vocalist and member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Nate grew up obsessed with Elvis and the Beach Boys, and his first time on stage he performed “In the Ghetto” by Elvis at his high school talent show. Since then Nate has been obsessed with the songwriting and storytelling of Rock and Americana, and the power of lyrics as a positive and transformative force.

In 2022 Nate relocated to Los Angeles, and began writing an album under the moniker Nate Amor. This fresh perspective is what drives his new album. He wrote and recorded it in Nashville, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles, working with legendarymixers Joe Zook and Drew Middleton. What came from this new start as Nate Amor is his very own unique sound with odes to some of his favorite artists such as Kings of Leon, Ray Lamontagne, and Chris Stapleton. His debut album as Nate Amor Keep Dreaming is OUT NOW.


The Dang Ol’ Tri’ole is a 5-person bohemian folk group from the Twin Cities. They exhibit a multi genre, highly entertaining stage presence. The Tri’ole will pull in tunes from Amy Winehouse, Fleetwood Mac, the Allman Brothers, Waylon Jennings, John Denver, the Doobie Brothers, and Michael Jackson to name a few. They maintain the integrity of the original, while adding a bit of Dang Ol’ charm.


Sasha’s powerful voice turns heads, as she beats on her guitar, brow furrowed and snarling! Mercedes has released five Americana solo albums, and though there will always be a soft spot in her heart for singer-songwriter stylings, Mercedes hasn’t been tethered to any genre.

Jon "Chico" Schneider

Jon plays all varieties of jazz, including swing jazz, bebop and jazz standards.

John is a local musician who wows listeners with his smooth and unique interpretations. His sax playing is one of a kind.
