ST. LOUIS, May 21, 2015 – In honor of Memorial Day weekend, veterans and active duty military personnel are invited to a free visit at the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum.

The Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum is open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily.

During Memorial Day weekend, and all season long, active, reserve and retired career military personnel are eligible to receive free tickets to every Cardinals home game. To redeem the free tickets, eligible fans must show a valid ID at Busch Stadium ticket windows 17-18 no earlier than one hour prior to game time. Tickets are based on availability.
