I’m counting down the days until spring training and the start of the season, aren’t you? Winter is so long and dreary without baseball. We know that baseball will be coming soon with the announcement that theme tickets are now available for purchase for the 2015 Cardinals season. There are over 20 theme nights this season, and more will be added over the course of the season. Keep in mind that the difference between promotion nights and theme nights is that you don’t get the promotional item unless you purchase the special theme night tickets. Hubby and I had non-theme tickets to the Christmas in July night last year. It was a fun atmosphere: the organist played Christmas music; Fredbird dressed up in Santa gear; and when each Cardinal came up to bat, his photo appeared on the scoreboard with a holiday background. Here are all the details on the theme night events:
