Exhibition tickets for minor-league game will go on sale Saturday

Friday, February 24, 2006

ST. LOUIS -- Tickets for the first game at the new Busch Stadium are on sale as of 10 a.m. Saturday.

The Cardinals officially move into their new ballpark this season with the home opener on April 10 against Milwaukee. But before that, the team's top minor-league affiliates square off in an April 4 exhibition game.

The game is something of a dress rehearsal for the new stadium, which is just south of the old ballpark that was demolished late last year.

The game between the Class AA Springfield Cardinals and Class AAA Memphis Redbirds begins at 6:10 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling (314) 345-9000 or online at www.stlcardinals.com.

Prices range from $10 to $20.
