If you are looking for a good weekend to treat the family to St. Louis Cardinals baseball before school starts up again, I recommend August 15-16. The opponent at Busch Stadium will be the San Diego Padres, but what is happening off the field will also be a major attraction.
On Saturday, August 16, the Cardinals Hall of Fame Class of 2014 will be inducted – Jim Edmonds, Willie McGee, Mike Shannon and Marty Marion. To commemorate the event, the first 25,000 fans 16 or over will receive a collectible 2014 Cardinals Hall of Fame Inductees Plaque.
With a special ticket offer for Chris Carpenter bobblehead night on Friday, you can make it a big weekend without killing the bank account.
Friday, August 15 is also United Way Night at the Ballpark. Special game tickets range from $17 for Pavilion level seats to $22 for Left Field Loge seating and include a voucher for a free hot dog and soda. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit United Way’s 2014 fundraising campaign.
The United Way of Greater St. Louis’ contributors, volunteers and partner agencies provide a variety of health and human services to children, adults and families throughout 16 counties in Missouri and Illinois.
