Cards' Winter Warm-Up tickets on sale now

Annual event will take place Jan. 14-16 at Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch

ST. LOUIS -- Tickets for the Cardinals' 21st annual Winter Warm-Up, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch from Jan. 14-16, are now available for purchase for $40 for fans 16 and older. Each ticket grants admission for all three days of the event.

Winter Warm-Up passes can be purchased at cardinals.com/winterwarmup, inside the Busch Stadium team store or at the Cardinals Clubhouse locations in the area. There are reduced-price tickets available for children ages 5 to 15 ($10). Children under the age of 5 may attend at no cost. Members of the military, police and fire department are also eligible to receive one free adult pass by presenting an active ID.

Winter Warm-Up has become the largest fundraising effort organized by Cardinals Care, which serves children in the local community. At the three-day event, fans have a chance to garner autographs, play interactive games, shop for memorabilia, attend live presentations and participate in question-and-answer sessions with players, owners, scouts and broadcasters.

Autographs for several players will require a separate autograph ticket. Those will go on sale on Jan. 4 at 10 a.m. CT. Autograph dates, times and prices are expected to be released in mid-December and will be listed at cardinals.com/winterwarmup at that time. There will be a limited number of player autograph tickets available. Any unsold tickets will be available on site at Winter Warm-Up.
