The St. Louis Cardinals Caravan is heading to Westminster College again this year to visit with local Mid-Missouri fans on Saturday, Jan. 13, in the Backer Dining Hall of the Mueller Leadership Hall on campus.
This popular event, which allows the current Redbirds players, Cardinals alumni and broadcasters to talk baseball and visit with their fans, is open to the public and free of charge. Doors will open at 5 p.m.
The first 400 children ages 15 and under through the door that day will receive a free autograph ticket. This ticket guarantees one autograph from each current and former 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.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to enter a 50/50 raffle for Cardinals tickets and other prizes. The proceeds will go to Westminster’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which sponsors educational and promotional programming.
A table will be on hand where attendees can buy tickets for $15 to attend Westminster College Night at Busch Stadium when the Cardinals play the Philadelphia Phillies at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 17.
This will mark the sixth year for WC Night at Busch Stadium. Last year, 900 Westminster trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends attended the event.
Westminster alumni are requested to rsvp for the event at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, Jan. 9.
Cardinals Caravan is sponsored by Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance. The Redbirds are scheduled to make 20 stops in six different states.
