If you were willing to pay $40 in advance and wait in line for multiple hours to secure the autograph of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, you had your opportunity at Winter Warm-Up several weekends ago. Of course, you had to be in St. Louis to take advantage.
In just three weeks from now, for roughly the same amount, $45, you can get a lot more for your money. Score the manager’s signature plus that of several Cardinals players, then enjoy dinner, during which Matheny and his Miami Marlins counterpart Mike Redmond will discuss the upcoming season.
The only downside for most is that the event, Baseball Bash, will be held at Jupiter, Florida’s Roger Dean Stadium on Friday, February 21st. It is three days after the first full-squad workout and exactly one week before the first official spring training game.
If you are heading down to Florida early, it should be worth your while to attend Baseball Bash. Tickets are available now from the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches.
