Partial Unofficial Look at 2015 Cardinals Spring Schedule

A very early look at Spring Training 2015 for the St. Louis Cardinals.

With the 2014 World Series just getting underway, it may seem too early to be thinking about 2015 Spring Training. Then again, with the St. Louis Cardinals having been eliminated in the National League Championship Series, perhaps thoughts of Florida in March are appropriate, after all.

While full spring game schedules for the major league club may not be announced until after the post-season concludes, bits and pieces of the Cardinals’ March plans are becoming known. With the help of springtrainingonline.com, here is the first cut at the schedule.

St. Louis Cardinals tentative 2015 spring training schedule, as of October 21, 2014

Though the Cardinals and Baltimore Orioles both missed out on their chance to recreate the 1944 World Series 70 years later, the two will be meeting in a spring home-and-away set. First, the O’s will be at Jupiter’s Roger Dean Stadium on Thursday, March 12, before the Cards make the trek to Sarasota on Sunday, March 22.

Speaking of Sundays, note that the Cardinals will be several hours west of Jupiter for three consecutive Sundays against American League clubs. It starts with a trip to Ft. Myers to face the Minnesota Twins on March 15 and concludes with a match against the Detroit Tigers at Lakeland on March 29.

The corresponding three Saturday games have not yet been disclosed, but given the distance traveled, I would not be surprised if some, if not all, of the March 14, 21 and 28 were also away contests for the Cardinals.

As had been previously announced, the Cardinals will close camp in Florida by Thursday, April 2, as they conclude their spring exhibition campaign with a single game at AutoZone Park against the Memphis Redbirds on Friday, April 3. The Cardinals will open the 2015 regular season at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on Monday, April 6.

As more information is known about the Cardinals spring training plans, including when tickets will go on sale, as well as television and radio schedules, you know where to find it. Of course, everything to date is unofficial and is subject to change.

    Some news about Nationals and Astros looking to build a ST facility near Jupiter.

      Local politics at its best. The county makes a deal for a new baseball facility that requires land controlled by the city. The city then makes a deal with housing developers for that land to effectively block the baseball complex. Gotta love the cooperation.

    Brian-when will your Rule V article be posted? Always enjoy that article and the questions involving who might stay and who gets unprotected.

    • Brian Walton says:

      Probably not soon. I am still wrapping up instructs odds and ends plus awards and my big StL season recaps while preparing to head to Arizona Fall League next week. Post World Series, the first priority would be minor league free agents. Rule 5 (not V, pet peeve of mine) protection lists are not due until just before Thanksgiving with the draft in early December. So there is more time for that. Good thing because we are already working on this year’s top 40 prospect list, which always starts the Monday after Thanksgiving.

      • JumboShrimp says:

        The Rule 5 protection lists are good information, because they are one of the few times where the Cards have to disclose priorities about minor leaguers.

    Brian-always enjoy the minor league free agents also.Just wondering.Thanks.
