14th 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 are $25.00 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 (PDF).   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.

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.
