With the 2020 season arriving in less than 100 days, Dugout Dish thought it would be a grand idea to have a run down of what St. Louis Cardinals fans can expect in the coming weeks and into next month.
Cardinals Care Winter Warm-Up
You can expect Rachael and myself to both be at Winter Warm-Up, covering the event for Dugout and having a little fun with our favorite team.
Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way to team up with their favorite Cardinals players to help children in the St. Louis community. It is worth noting, Cardinals Care has invested over $26 million to support area children. Established in 1997, the proceeds have provided over $14 million in grants to non-profit youth organizations and has built 24 ball fields in under privileged communities.
Hosted at Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch, Winter Warm-Up will be taking place from January 18 – 20. Tickets are available for admission for $40 (Adult) and $10 (Child). Each admittance ticket is good for all three days of the event.
Paid Autograph tickets went on sale during lunch today. Tickets range from $5 – $150. As of December 09, 2019 at 9:00 pm CST., the following Cardinals have sold out: Lou Brock, Dylan Carlson, Tommy Edman, Junior Fernandez, Jack Flaherty, Bob Gibson, Nolan Gorman, Yadier Molina, Angel Rondon, and Jake Woodford.
Unfortunately, the Free Autographs tickets are sold out. This included: Rick Horton, Al Hrabosky, Bengie Molina, Jason Motte, and John Mozeliak.
