Both teams announced Wednesday in Joplin that they are going to host a variety of events for fans to help the victims of the tornado. Team officials, players and Governor Jay Nixon announced that during the upcoming three game series (Friday, June 17-Sunda, June 19) between the two clubs at Busch Stadium, fans will be able to purchase special commemorative “Teams Unite for Joplin” jersey patch that players will be wearing on their uniforms.
Each teams website will also hold an auction, for fans to bid on game-used and autographed items that include commemorative “Teams Unite for Joplin” baseballs, game-used bases and line up cards.
The Cardinals will also conduct an auction for a VIP fan experience on the team’s television and radio broadcasts. Fans at Sunday’s game may purchase a scratch off ticket for a chance to win an autographed game-used jersey from the weekend series autographed by the Cardinals player.
