St. Louis, MO (KTRS) It’s going to be a sea of red in downtown St. Louis today for the Cardinals’ home opener.
This opening day is particularly special as the Cardinals celebrate the 10th anniversary in Busch Stadium and the 2006 World Championship squad. The festivities will get underway with an 11 a.m. pep rally.
New this year, Cardinals Nation will host the Official Pre-Game Party of the St. Louis Cardinals from 12:45 p.m. until 3:15 p.m. This ticketed pep-rally style party will be located on the second floor of Cardinals Nation in the Hall of Fame Club. This event will happen two and a half hours prior to every Cardinals home game during the 2016 season. The exclusive pre-game event includes a full buffet menu, all-inclusive bar, and a DJ or live music all the way until first pitch.
The Cards will take on the Brewers at 3:15 p.m. with baseball legend Lou Brock throwing out the first pitch.
Meanwhile, Metro officials are advising fans to use Metrolink to avoid traffic congestion and the cost of parking on opening day.
