Cardinals Make Hall of Fame Induction a Pay Event

While voting for the inaugural class of modern era players to be inducted into the new St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame was free, the actual ceremony will not be.

$18 per person tickets are now on sale for the 2014 Cardinals Hall of Fame induction ceremony as Jim Edmonds, Marty Marion, Willie McGee and Mike Shannon formally enter the Hall on August 16.

The festivities will take place inside FOX Sports Midwest Live! at Ballpark Village on Saturday, August 16 at 10:30 a.m. All tickets are general admission-standing room only.

Each ticket holder will receive a special Hall of Fame Induction Day issue of the Cardinals Gameday Magazine and a limited edition print of the 2014 inductees. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cardinals.com/hof.

    Don’t stand between me and the ticket window.

    Seriously, I think they should consider making the yearly induction a featured event at the winter warm-up. It could use a featured event or two.

    Somebody help me understand………………Cards do the trades to bolster the pitching staff to make a serious run .I Then why in the hell do you bring up a bench guy (shane Robinson) for your bench.Why why why……………..I am sure Robinson is a nice guy and a team guy but he has done nothing this year that shows he can be a help off the bench.This bench of T.Cruz,Descalso,Ellis,Robinson is probably the weakest in baseball.Hellfire I am not a Tomm,y Pham fan but I would rather see Pham added to the 40-man instead of wasting time with Robinson.Myself I would rather see Grtichuk come on but if it means sitting on the bench and pinch-hitting or playing 1 game a week I would Grichuk get regular time in AAA until September roster expansion.

      We only had 4 OFs, after trading Craig. We must want a 5th OF. Its a limited role, spot starts against LHPs and pinch-hitting. Given the few at bats, we did not want to bring up Grichuk, who should play everyday at Memphis.
      Shane hit a HR against a lefty, helping us beat the Dodgers last October. He is a good match for what we currently need.

      • Brian Walton says:

        As a pinch-hitter this season, Shane Robinson is 2-for-18, .111. I guess you are suggesting he is due, not done.

        • JumboShrimp says:

          Robinson hit fine for average at Memphis, playing steadily. 18 at bats are small n.

          • Brian Walton says:

            No. Robinson had one huge month with Memphis, but it was back in May. Otherwise, he has been the fourth-best outfielder on the Redbirds. Most recently, he was batting .237 in his last 10 games prior to this most recent promotion.

            Don’t get me wrong. Based on the manager’s use of his roster, Robinson was the only addition Mozeliak could make that would not push Taveras to the bench too often. Sad it has to come to this, but apparently that is the way it is.

            • JumboShrimp says:

              At Memphis, Robinson has a higher on base percentage than Osar!
              Be of good cheer, nothing is sad. Oscar is a nub, so it makes sense to give him offdays versus lefties. Sensible decision by Mo.

      Welcome to the Pham bandwagon :)

    Bourjos is making his third start in a row after only two previous in July. I wonder if Jay is dinged up, or in the doghouse.

  4. Bw52 says:

    So far offense taking the night off.Wainwright needed to be extra sharp and he hasn`t been tonite.3 runs might be to big a hill for this banjo offense to make up.

  5. Bw52 says:

    Wainwright stunk tonite.7 runs for the 2nd time this season.Offense still sleepwalking.Taveras with a 2B.Bourjos a 2B.Holliday HR.everybody else pretty much non-factors.Someoe tell Adams its okay to hit HRS and knock in runs .Ditto for Peralta.Bad night by big pitcher.Need next 2 to stay close.

  6. Bw52 says:

    Didn`t want people to think I was knocking Wainwright.Disappointed he had such a poor start in a big game.The thing that worries me a bit is the fact that in 2 or his last 3 starts he has been knocked around quite a bit.On 7-22 vs Tampa he only went 4.2 innings and gave up 4 runs and last nite 5.1 innings 7 runs.He has had only 4 bad blowout games this year Cubs may 2nd 6 runs,SF May 30th 7 runs and the 2 forementioned games.
    Otherwise he has been very good.10 starts he has held the other team scoreless.3 Times he allowed ONE run. 4 times TWO runs.So that`s 17 starts allowing 2 runs or less.That`s pretty good.Thats pitching in Chicago,Cincy and Milwaukee hitters ballparks on a regular basis.Just shows what a damn fine pitcher Wainwright is a maybe he will get a serious look for a award.Every ace lays a egg once in a while even posterboy from the Dodgers.
