Saturday Signings and Flashback Fridays at Cardinals Museum
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 5, 2018 - The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its 2018 Programming Schedule, which includes 13 Saturday Signings at the Museum and a new Flashback Fridays series.
Ray Lankford, Willie McGee and John Tudor highlight this year's Saturday Signings attendees. Former Cardinals players will be signing autographs inside the Cardinals Museum before each Saturday home game throughout the season. Saturday Signings at the Museum is sponsored by Heartland Coca-Cola, the Official Sponsor of the Cardinals Alumni.
"Coca-Cola and the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization have been partners for more than 50 years. We have valued our long-standing partnership with the Cardinals and the great fans of Cardinals Nation," said Chuck Wyant, Heartland Coca-Cola Vice President. "Our joint commitment to the community goes beyond just our sports partnership, making it an easy decision for Heartland Coca-Cola to become the Official Sponsor of the Cardinals Alumni. The partnership doesn't just connect us with the great history of Cardinals Baseball, but also allows us to give back to the community through youth sports and the Cardinals Care Redbird Rookies program. As a recently established locally-owned bottler, we are thrilled to establish our linkage to the local community through affiliations such as this one."
In addition to Saturday Signings, the Museum is hosting a new series this year called Flashback Fridays. Before every Friday home game at 4:00 p.m., the Museum will host a presentation about Cardinals history or a museum-related topic from one of the Museum's staff members, a former player or a visiting author. These presentations will follow the popular Artifact Spotlight presentations, which will continue at 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on home Fridays.
The Museum will continue to host Author Series and the one-of-a-kind Reliving Historyevents, which are exclusive evenings with former players. Guests will get to meet the player, have their photo taken with the athlete and experience a presentation about the player's career. Each attendee will take home their photograph with the player that has been personally signed by the player. The first Relieving History event occurs this Friday, April 6, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. with Ray Lankford. Tickets are $35 ($30 for Museum members) and can be purchased at cardinals.com/museum.
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Opening Day for 2016 was particularly special as the Cardinals celebrated the 10th anniversary in Busch Stadium and the 2006 World Championship squad.
Located in the heart of the downtown business district, the facility features classic arched openings similar the nearby Cupples Station warehouses, west of the site. The stadium features a creative use of old and new materials, from red brick and concrete to exposed steel and glass.
The majority of spectators have dramatic views of the Gateway Arch and the downtown St. Louis skyline. The ballpark has expanded bleacher sections, a state-of-the-art video board and entertainment system.
The facility has increased access for fans with disabilities, new escalators and more elevators. Disabled drop-off locations are: Gate 2, at Poplar and Eighth Streets; Gate 4 (Plaza of Champions), at Clark and Eighth Streets; and, Gate 6 on Broadway.
A main-level concourse circles the entire ballpark, providing a 360 degree view of the playing field. Home plate is located in the southwest corner of the site. The stadium features lowered seating and scoreboard heights in center field. A public plaza provides a perfect gathering spot for fans before and after games.
Ballpark Village will again be the place to be before, during and after the game. Since opening in March of 2014, Ballpark Village has hosted more than 5 million visitors of all ages from across the country and brought hundreds of great events to downtown.
Ballpark Village entered its second year in 2015 with the opening of the new Crown Room second-floor lounge in Budweiser Brew House, the addition of two 15-foot television screens in Fox Sports Midwest Live!, a two-sided permanent outdoor stage next to the Busch II infield and greatly improved sightlines into left center field in Busch Stadium.
