4-H Upcoming Events

Fourteenth annual 4-H day with the St. Louis Cardinals

Missouri and Illinois 4-H members, parents, volunteers and alumni will gather at Busch Stadium on Saturday, May 16, 2015 for the 14th annual 4-H Day with the Cardinals.  The National League Central Champion Cardinals will be playing the Detroit Tigers in a 1:15 p.m. game.  Tickets for the game will be $25 each and includes a specially designed T-shirt featuring the 4-H Clover on the back and the Cardinals emblem on the front.

4-H members, leaders, alumni and their families who purchase 4-H Day with the Cardinals tickets will have the opportunity to participate in a parade around the Busch Stadium outfield.  Pre-game ceremonies will include a recitation of the 4-H pledge and ceremonial first pitches by an Illinois and Missouri 4-H member.

Tickets for the event must be ordered on the 4-H Day with the Cardinals order form.  Ticket order forms are available at the University of Missouri Extension office, or on the web at http://4h.missouri.edu/events/cardinals/.  Ticket orders must be postmarked by April 6, 2015.  Tickets usually sell out before the order deadline so families are encouraged to order early.  4-H Clubs, counties or groups of families who would like to be seated together must send their orders in the same envelope.  All questions about tickets should be addressed to Rhonda Shafer, shaferr@missouri.edu or by phone 636-528-4613.  All questions about the parade, opening ceremonies and raffle should be directed to Dave Hileman, hilemand@missouri.edu or by phone 636-583-5141.  Tickets and T-shirts will be mailed out on May 4.

Families can also participate in the 4-H Day with the Cardinals raffle to win prizes such as throwing out the first pitch, autographed baseballs and tickets to other Cardinal baseball games.  Funds raised through the raffle support Missouri and Illinois 4-H programs.  Complete information about the 4-H Day with the Cardinals raffle is on the ticket order form.  First pitch raffle winners will be notified by phone before the game.  All other prizes will be mailed out after the game.
