“We are so excited to be celebrating the 22nd year of Winter Warm-Up and helping kids in the St. Louis community,” said Michael Hall, Executive Director of Cardinals Care and Vice President of Community Relations. “The autograph sessions are a great opportunity for fans to meet their favorite past, present and future Cardinals players and gear up for the 2018 season.”
Player autograph sessions are one of the most popular attractions of the Warm-Up. While some autographs tickets are available to obtain for free, others autograph tickets require a specific additional donation. Every dollar donated for autograph tickets—as well as all proceeds from the Winter Warm-Up weekend—will benefit Redbird Rookies and charitable grants to other non-profit organization that help kids.
For players signing free autographs at the Winter Warm-Up, a limited supply of autograph tickets will be available online and at the Busch Stadium Box Office on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans can obtain up to two free autograph tickets per player and up to five free player autograph tickets per transaction. A full list and schedule of free player autograph signing dates can be found at cardinals.com/WWU.
All autograph tickets will be sold online through Thursday, January 11 at 12:00 p.m. CT. Remaining autograph tickets not sold online will be available at the Winter Warm-Up. Those who order their autograph tickets online by noon on January 4 will receive their tickets in the mail. Fans who order after January 4 can pick up their autograph tickets at the Busch Stadium Box Office during regular box office hours or at the Ticket Booth and autograph ticket kiosks at the Winter Warm-Up.
