4-H Day with the Cardinals

16th 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 20, 2017 for the 16th annual 4-H Day with the Cardinals.  The St. Louis Cardinals will be playing the San Francisco Giants in a 6:15 p.m. game.  Tickets for the game will be $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.

                If you would like to sit with other 4-H members and families from Jasper County, please return 4-H Day with the Cardinals order form to the Jasper County Extension Office, 1401 Clayton Ave., Newton, IL 62448 by Thursday, March 9. Payment for tickets can be made to the University of Illinois Extension.

                If you would prefer to send your order form in sooner or separately, please follow directions listed on the form. Ticket order forms are available at the Jasper County Extension office, or on the web at www.mo4h.missouri.edu.  Ticket orders must be postmarked by April 10, 2017.  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.
