January 25, 2013

12th Annual 4-H Day With the St. Louis Cardinals

Illinois and Missouri 4-H members, parents, volunteers, and alumni are gathering at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Saturday, May 18, 2013 for the 12th annual 4-H Day With the Cardinals event. The Cardinals are playing the Milwaukee Brewers in a 6:15 p.m. game. Tickets for the game are $24.00 each which includes a specially designed t-shirt featuring the 4-H Clover on the back and the Cardinals emblem on the front.

4-H members, parents, leaders, alumni, and their families who purchase 4-H Day With the Cardinals tickets have the opportunity to participate in a parade around the Busch Stadium outfield. Families can also take part in a raffle held by Missouri 4-H for great prizes including the chance to throw out the first pitch, autographed baseballs, and tickets to Cardinals baseball games provided by the St. Louis Cardinals Organization. Pre-game ceremonies include a recitation of the 4-H pledge and ceremonial first pitches by an Illinois and Missouri 4-H member.

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 Illinois Extension office or on the web at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/state4h/events/cardinals.cfm. Orders must be postmarked by April 5, 2013, and tickets usually sell out before the order deadline so families are encouraged to order early. 4-H clubs, counties, or groups of families who want 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 sponsored by University of Missouri 4-H support Missouri and Illinois 4-H programs. Complete information about the 4-H Day With the Cardinals raffle is on the ticket order form.
