Cardinals to host an evening with Whitey Herzog

Exclusive event with the Hall of Fame manager scheduled for May 16th at Busch Stadium

The St. Louis Cardinals are hosting a unique event for fans to get up close with Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Whitey Herzog on Monday, May 16, at Busch Stadium.

As part of the event Herzog will tell stories and share insight into his 18-year managerial career during a 90 minute Q&A session with broadcaster Dan McLaughlin. In his 11 seasons as Cardinals skipper, "The White Rat" compiled an 822-728 record while leading the Redbirds to three National League Pennants, including the 1982 World Series Championship, and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010.

In addition to the program, fans that purchase a ticket will receive a baseball autographed by Herzog, enjoy a cocktail party on the warning track, a photo opportunity with the 1982 World Series trophy and dinner and drinks in the Redbird Club.

Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime event are $225 and can be purchased at cardinals.com/whitey.
