Due to the severe winter weather forecast and anticipated icy road conditions on Saturday, the Cardinals Caravan stop planned for Saturday, Jan. 14 has been CANCELLED.
Above, St. Louis Cardinals players visit Westminster during the 2016 St. Louis Cardinals Caravan.
The St. Louis Cardinals Caravan will make a stop for Redbird players to visit with local mid-Missouri fans at Westminster College next month.
The event is free and open to the public and will be held Saturday, Jan. 14, at 5 p.m. in Mueller Leadership Hall on campus.
Those in attendance will have the opportunity to talk Cardinals baseball with some of the current players, Cardinals alumni and broadcasters. The Cardinals will talk about the upcoming season and host a question and answer session following their presentation.
The first 400 children ages 15 and under through the door on the day of the event will receive a free autograph ticket, which guarantees one autograph from each current and former Cardinals player in attendance. Eligible children should bring an item to be autographed such as a baseball or baseball glove.
Unfortunately, due to high demand, autographs will only be available for the eligible group of children age 15 and under at the event.
The Cardinals will also bring several silent auction items to be sold with the proceeds to benefit Westminster’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee sponsoring educational and promotional programing and the Westminster College intramural program.
Following the Caravan session, a ballpark-style meal will be available for attendees in the Mueller Student Center from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. The cost for faculty, staff, students not on a meal plan and visitors is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children 12 and under. Those planning on eating the ballpark meal should rsvp by Tuesday, Jan. 10 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A table will be on hand where attendees can buy tickets for $12 to attend Westminster College Night at Busch Stadium when the Cardinals play the Milwaukee Brewers June 15.
This will mark the sixth year for WC Night at Busch Stadium. Last year 1,200 Westminster trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends attended the event.
Attendees can also plan to spend the whole afternoon before the Caravan watching sports by attending the men and women Blue Jay basketball games against Eureka College at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the Historic Gym.
Cardinals Caravan is sponsored by Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance.
