For those who want to read the words that go with the music…
The Angels series at Busch, June 21-23, will be the highlight of the home season for many.
In addition, the April 13-14 games against the Reds will be played in Monterrey, Mexico.
St. Louis Cardinals press release

The Cardinals 20-game interleague schedule will feature a pair of two-game home-and-home series with in-state rival Kansas City (May 21-22 at Busch Stadium & August 13-14 at Kansas City) and with the Oakland Athletics (June 25-26 at Busch Stadium & August 3-4 at Oakland).

I’m glad to see they moved the games up. Makes it much easier on us in the Eastern time zone and it’s not like 4 on a Sunday is crazy for a West coast game.December 10, 2018 at 11:59 am #76839Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I love the SNG move to 6 cst. And I’m glad only 1 cards game is selected do far.December 10, 2018 at 12:43 pm #76847
stlcard25, are you close enough to Williamsport to get to the LL Classic game? State College will be playing at home from Aug. 13th thru the 19th, and its close by. I might make a weekend trip out of it.December 22, 2018 at 9:52 am #78258
The Card’s game vs.AAA Memphis was wiped out due to the weather and not made up because of the scheduling.
This season the game will be played in Memphis on Mon. March 25th with a rain date on Tues. And then Wed. Mar. 27th will be an off day before the start of the regular season on Thur. March 28th in Milwaukee. No rain date for the Cards vs. Brewers Thu-Sun 4-game series.
PS. the schedule provided by TCN at the top of this page on Aug 22th makes a great copy for the season.December 22, 2018 at 10:15 am #78264
There is almost always a rain date for Opening Day, as they keep the next day open for that possibility. However, since Miller Park has a roof, it is unneeded.December 22, 2018 at 11:07 am #78267
Oh, and here I thought they were playing at the Lloyd Street Grounds.December 22, 2018 at 11:28 am #78273
From what I have heard, the players don’t like the gap between playing the afternoon of opening day, then waiting until two nights later for game 2. Seems like better scheduling could put the opening games in warm climates or domes.December 22, 2018 at 12:06 pm #78280gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
I have always thought the first 2 to 3 weeks of the season should be played only in warmer climates or domes too. I know it would be a little weird but teams in Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, etc….should not have home games before April 15. Last year was a disaster with early season weather.January 23, 2019 at 8:30 am #80510

The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that single-game tickets for the 2019 season will go on sale this Friday, February 8, at 10 AM CT.
Fans who wish to purchase tickets to three or more games can take part in a special online-only multi-game ticket sale beginning tomorrow, February 6, at 10 AM CT.
The multi-game and single-game on-sales will be available at cardinals.com. In addition, tickets for Friday’s single-game on-sale will be available via phone at 314.345.9000 and at the Busch Stadium Box Office on 8th Street.February 8, 2019 at 3:33 pm #81547February 11, 2019 at 2:23 pm #81720
This is really an aggressive deal, especially this early. They are essentially giving away mid-week tickets for the entire season in this sale (likely except for fees).
Remember that when 3.4 million in attendance is celebrated in October, these freebies count the same as $100 seats sold.
From the Cardinals:
In celebration of pitchers and catchers reporting for Spring Training, the St. Louis Cardinals have announced a special 12-hour flash ticket sale beginning tomorrow at 10 AM CT.
Fans can purchase tickets for any Monday—Thursday games in 2019 (excluding Opening Day) for just $5. Additionally, each $5 ticket purchased will be pre-loaded with $5 in Cards Cash for fans to use towards concessions or merchandise inside Busch Stadium.
Fans can purchase up to eight of the special $5 tickets per person, per game. Games available in this special sale include matchups with the Cubs, Dodgers, Brewers, Athletics, Royals and more.
Tickets will be available at cardinals.com or via phone at 314.345.9000. Again, this special ticket flash sale will only be available until 10 PM CT on Tuesday, February 12.

That’s a pretty good deal! If I didn’t have so much uncertainty in my life right now I’d pick up a couple tickets. Still may for my nephew when the dodgers come to town so he can go.February 11, 2019 at 5:41 pm #81725858booyahParticipantFree
Also the tickets to the Angels series a stupid expensive. Was sort of expected.February 12, 2019 at 1:37 pm #81787
I not-so-boldly predict we will be reading a story within the next two weeks about ticket sales being ahead of last season.March 7, 2019 at 2:22 pm #83473
Here I already thought the regular season TV schedule had been announced. Anyway, it is good to be reassured all games will be televised again this season.
Every game will be televised, with 150 on FOX Sports Midwest and #FOXSportsGO. It starts three weeks from today.#STLCards | @DannyMacTV @Mad_Hungarian39 @bthompson48 @RickyH49@TheCatOnFox @SWarmann@EricaLWeston pic.twitter.com/Bwq9WGuSR5

I have such mixed feelings about our opening series here in the great State of Wisconsin. We have, at last count, 14 Coloradoidians steaming into town during that 4 game series with the Crew, for a Saturday matrimony. It’s going to be a madhouse with 3 couples staying with us from Wednesday-Sunday. As a result, I may only be able to catch one of the four games at Miller…..wild black stallions couldn’t keep me away from the opener. But!…….with this comes a gold lining for all of you game thread PBP fans. Usually, yours truly calls no games when the Cards visit Milwaukee. But due to the unusual circumstances, both Friday night’s and Sunday’s afternoon’s games are on the docket for some rousing PBP. How’s that for a little Christmas come early action!

Pugs… you are a man without any influence. You should have had the wedding moved up a week. 🙁March 10, 2019 at 12:59 pm #83664PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
But I’ve been under the “influence” my fair share of times, if that counts for anything, Nyquist. Hard to believe that I’m entering my 8th year in the PBP booth here. As most of you know, Brian has been running me out to the booth on one year contracts only. I’m please to announce that this year I’m starting a new 4 year deal that will be netting me double digit figures per annum…..and I would be terribly remiss not to thank Brian for what amounts to a 4 year vote of confidence…..thanks Bri!!! Another super huge bit of news. We have been in talks with none other than our very own Bobby Reed to hop on to that roller coaster PBP saddle and join your’s truly in the booth. With me calling the action and Bobby lending the color, along with a healthy dose of baseball intelligence, we’d be packing more punch than a Muhammad Ali-George Foreman fisticuffs. Right now Bobby is balking at the financial terms and the number of games he has to be in the booth. If I had to guess, I would say that Mr. Reed will be onboard here in 2019, but possibly only on a cameo basis. Stay tuned!March 11, 2019 at 6:23 am #83682
Just as I predicted here… some fans are getting anxious for the real thing to start up.
Reminder: in three days it will be two weeks until post time. Full season affiliates only one week after that.
