Cards Step Up to 9-11 Plate For First Responders
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The St. Louis Cardinals want to honor those who put their lives on the line to help fellow citizens. The team in conjunction with Major League Baseball announced Wednesday they’re offering all emergency first responders free tickets to the Sunday, September 11th game vs. Atlanta to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001.
Emergency first responders may go to cardinals.com/911 to obtain four tickets to the game with the print-at-home option. The offer extends to any individual who works directly as a first responder (police, firefighter or emergency service personnel), any individual who works for an emergency first responder agency or any individual who has an immediate family member who serves as an emergency first responder.
“We want to recognize the selfless service of all of our police, fire and emergency response workers” said Bill DeWitt III, the President of the St. Louis Cardinals. “Every day these men and women put their lives on the line to protect our community. We want to thank them for their service, as well as the sacrifice each of their families make on our behalf.”
Major League Baseball and all thirty teams will join in observing September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. The Cardinals will pay tribute to all first responders in a special pre-game ceremony before the game on September 11th.
