2015 WINTER WARM-UP AUTOGRAPH TICKETS ON SALE TOMORROW

Event is first opportunity to meet newcomer Heyward alongside current players like Molina and Wainwright 

 ST. LOUIS, January 05, 2015 – Cardinals Care, the charitable foundation of the St. Louis Cardinals, announced today that fans may begin purchasing autograph tickets for the 19th annual Winter Warm-Up at cardinals.com/winterwarmup, at 9 a.m. CT on Tuesday, January 6th.

The 2015 Winter Warm-Up event (#CardsWarmUp) – happening January 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch – is the first opportunity for Cardinals fans to meet offseason acquisitions Jason Heyward, Mark Reynolds, Matt Belisle, and Jordan Walden. Returning members of the 2014 NL Central Division Champion St. Louis Cardinals including Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, Matt Carpenter, Matt Holliday, Kolten Wong, and Matt Adams are scheduled to appear at the event along with Hall of Famers Red Schoendienst, Whitey Herzog and Tony La Russa. In total, more than 60 current and former players will be on hand for the event.

Player autograph sessions are one of the most popular attractions of the Warm-Up. While some players’ autographs are free with the admission pass, others require an autograph ticket available through a specific additional donation. Every dollar donated for autograph tickets – as well as all proceeds from the Winter Warm-Up weekend – benefit Cardinals Care, the team’s community foundation that cares for kids.

“Winter Warm-Up is the perfect opportunity for fans to meet all of the newest Cardinals and all of their returning favorites while helping kids in the St. Louis community,” said Michael Hall, Executive Director of Cardinals Care and Vice President of Community Relations. “We hope fans will join us as we kick off the 2015 season with the reigning NL Central Champs.”

Fans are encouraged to visit cardinals.com/winterwarmup for the most up-to-date details about player autograph dates, times and, if required, additional donation amounts. All autograph tickets will be sold online through Sunday, January 11th at 11:59 p.m. CT.  Remaining autograph tickets not sold online will be available at the event. For complete details, schedule, frequently asked questions, and to purchase admission passes, visit cardinals.com/winterwarmup. A Winter Warm-Up admission pass is required to enter the Warm-Up and obtain autographs.

Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community – both on and off the baseball field. Since it was established in 1997, Cardinals Care has distributed nearly $20 million to support St. Louis area non-profit youth organizations and built 21 youth ball fields in local disadvantaged neighborhoods. 2015 marks the 12th year of Cardinals Care’s innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play. In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 4,500 kids who participate in the program each year.

The 2015 autograph schedule follows:

*Dates, times and players may change; some players may be added. Limit 3 tickets per player; except Heyward, Molina—Limit 1.*
