8th Annual 4-H Day with the St. Louis Cardinals

Illinois and Missouri 4-H members, parents, volunteers and alumni will gather at Busch Stadium on Saturday, May 11, 2019 for the 18th annual 4-H Day with the Cardinals. The Cardinals will be playing the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 1:15 p.m. game. Tickets for the game will be $25.00 each and this price includes a specially designed t-shirt featuring the 4-H Clover and the Cardinals logos to commemorate the day.

Prior to the game, 4-H members and their parents/leaders can take part in a parade around the ball field – thatís right, participants will actually get to go down on the field and march around the stadium behind their state or county 4-H banner.

Tickets for the event must be ordered on the 4-H Day with the Cardinals order form. Ticket order forms are available at the Extension office. For more information, contact Rhonda Shafer at (636) 528-7038 or at: http://www.4h.missouri.edu/4h-day-with/4h-day-with-cardinals.

Ticket orders must be postmarked by April 1, 2019. 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 sit 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 other great prizes.
