17th Annual 4-H Day with the St. Louis Cardinals


February 7, 2018

Illinois and Missouri 4-H members, parents, volunteers and alumni will gather at Busch Stadium on Saturday, May 19, 2018 for the 17th annual 4-H Day with the Cardinals.  The Cardinals will be playing the Philadelphia Phillies in a 1:15 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.  As an added bonus the Cardinals give-away item for the game is a replica 1968 National League Championship ring.  The first 30,000 fans age 16 and older will receive this one-of-a-kind item.

Tickets for the event must be ordered on the 4-H Day with the Cardinals order form.  Ticket order forms are available at the University of Missouri Extension office, or on the web at www.mo4h.missouri.edu.  Ticket orders must be postmarked by April 9, 2018.  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 tickets to other Cardinal baseball games.  Funds raised through the raffle support Illinois and MIssouri 4-H programs.  Complete information about the 4-H Day with the Cardinals raffle is on the ticket order form.  4-H Day with the Cardinals has raised $77,000.00 to support Illinois and Missouri 4-H and Extension programming.
