Cardinls announce 2012 Promotional Schedule

The St. Louis Cardinals have released their much anticipated 2012 promotional schedule, consisting of at least 34 giveaways and highlighted by a variety of 2011 World Championship memorabilia and items commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the 1982 World Championship.

The highlights of the schedule include a replica wearable Championship ring presented by Edward Jones (April 14th) and Replica Championship Pennant (April 15th) as part of the Cardinals opening weekend festivities, as well as a replica World Championship Trophy sponsored by on Sunday, April 29th, an Ameren Missouri Tony La Russa Retirement Figurine on Friday May 11, and a David Freese Bobblehead presented by Scotts on Sunday, May 13th.  The 30th Anniversary – 1982 Championship weekend against the Brewers (Aug.3-5) presented by Majestic Athletics is expected to be very popular and reminiscent with appearances by some of the 1982 World Championship team and the current Cardinals team wearing throwback 1982 uniforms all weekend long. Giveaways include a Coca-Cola and Dierbergs Bruce Sutter Bobblehead (Friday, August 3rd); a 1982 Replica World Series Game 7 Ticket (Saturday, August 4th) and a Build-A-Bear Workshop 1982 Anniversary Bear (Sunday August 5th). 

The Cardinals are offering two promotional packages tailored around several of the must have items.  Like the team’s other ticket packages, these special adult and kid promotional packs offer a great value to some of the season’s most popular giveaway games.

Kids Promo Packs - These five-game packs feature dates where fans ages 15 and under, with paid admission, receive many kid-favorite items such as a PowerAde and Shop ‘n Save Kids Lunch Cooler Bag, a Kids T-Shirt sponsored by Ice Mountain, a Build-A-Bear Workshop 1982 Anniversary Bear and free Six Flags Ticket.  Included in the packs, kids will also receive a Hunter hot dog and Coca-Cola at each game.

Adult Promo Packs - These five-game packs include the most popular promotional items for adults paired with the best games this season. Collectors and fans alike will not want to miss out on this offer as the packs are designed around a Lumiere Adult T-Shirt, an Ameren Missouri Tony La Russa Retirement Figurine, an AT&T Carlos Beltran Replica Cardinals Jersey and Bruce Sutter Bobblehead compliments of Coca Cola and Dierbergs.

Again this season all Friday night home games are Busch Bash Fridays with music, fun and prizes in the Ford Plaza starting two hours prior to the game. And all Sunday games are North Star Ice Cream Sundays where fans can enjoy fun, games and North Star frozen treats in the Ford Plaza starting two hours prior to the game.
