(And, of course, the new alternate jerseys will be widely available starting Friday too.)
The Winter Warm-Up is Saturday, Jan. 19, through Monday, Jan. 21, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch. The event times are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday.
Past popular attractions will return for 2013. Fans can interact with their favorite players through autograph sessions, play interactive games, share memories with Hall-of-Famers, meet Fredbird, find collectable memorabilia, bid on one-of-a-kind items at live and silent auctions, experience live presentations, and ask questions of players, owners, scouts, broadcasters and officials at Q&A sessions.
The prices for admission passes, which are valid for all three days of the Warm-Up, will remain the same as the last few years – $40 for fans age 16 and over, $10 for children age 5 to 15. Kids under 5 are admitted free of charge. Members of the military, police and fire departments with an active ID will receive one free adult pass, which must be obtained in person at the Busch Stadium administrative offices. Autograph tickets will be sold online beginning Wednesday, Dec. 19, through Monday, Jan. 14.
Tickets can be purchased online at cardinals.com/winterwarmup, in the official Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium and at Cardinals Clubhouse stores located around St. Louis.
