Tickets Include Pre-Game Graduation Parade on Field Prior to Game


ST. LOUIS, MO. (May 16, 2012) – The St. Louis Cardinals are inviting graduates of all ages to attend the first annual Graduation Day at Busch Stadium on Sunday, July 1. The event will allow recent graduates to celebrate their diligence with a day at the ballpark.

Graduates of elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, college, or any other type of graduation are welcome to walk in a pre-game parade around the field sporting their cap and/or gown. The parade will begin at 12:10 p.m. culminating with a 1:15 p.m. game in which students and former students may stay and watch the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“We are excited to offer this new event honoring recent graduates for their achievement,” said Joe Strohm, Vice President of Ticket Sales. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the Cardinals to congratulate each graduate as we join them in celebrating this important academic milestone.”

Tickets for the day are on sale now for $15 and include Pavilion level seating as well as a voucher for a free hot dog and soda. All ticketed fans ages 15 and under will also receive a Yadier Molina Rawlings Bat.

To purchase tickets, visit, or groups of 25 or more can call 314-345-9500. Tickets will be available through July 1. Help celebrate your graduate’s special day by reserving a spot today.

Cardinals fan since I could hold a fishing pole steady. Accidental blogger. Opinionated. I could care less about what you think of me. Constantly confounded, bemused, and confuzzled (ie I'm a pc and a mac). I'm an IT infrastructure analyst with a penchant for breaking tech toys. I ate a sabermetric primer for breakfast. I love playing "All-powerful GM of MLB". The 2010 Cardinals represented a good, practical definition "cognitive dissonance". The 2011 version got by on duct tape and a prayer, and I'm fine with that. They just need new tape for #12 in 12.
