The St. Louis Cardinals have designated Aug. 15 as “Sports Crusaders Day” at the ballpark, and good seats are still available.
Sports Crusaders executive director Randy Curless said the tickets are for a 6:15 p.m. start pitting the Cardinals against the San Diego Padres.
He describes Sports Crusaders Day as a win-win for supporters and his organization. Tickets are available for $25 each for outfield terrace box seats and $30 for outfield loge box seating, a reduction from the normal prices of $32 and $39 respectively.
Sports Crusaders will receive $15 per ticket to assist the sports evangelism organization with camp expenses, a radio ministry and/or other expenses of the non-profit.
The largest group to purchase tickets will receive two free passes to watch pregame batting practice on the field.
Sports Crusaders will figure prominently in throwing out the first pitch of the game. That honor will go to former Sports Crusaders board member James Smith, president of the Missouri Baptist Foundation.
