Ray Lankford Kicks Off Saturday Signings Series presented by Heartland Coca-Cola
ST. LOUIS,Mo., April 4, 2018– The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum announced its 2018 Programming Schedule, which includes 13 Saturday Signings at the Museum and a new Flashback Fridays series.
Ray Lankford, Willie McGee and John Tudor highlight this year’s Saturday Signings attendees. Former Cardinals players will be signing autographs inside the Cardinals Museum before each Saturday home game throughout the season. Saturday Signings at the Museum is sponsored by Heartland Coca-Cola, the Official Sponsor of the Cardinals Alumni.
“Coca-Cola and the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization have been partners for more than 50 years. We have valued our long-standing partnership with the Cardinals and the great fans of Cardinals Nation,” said Chuck Wyant, Heartland Coca-Cola Vice President. “Our joint commitment to the community goes beyond just our sports partnership, making it an easy decision for Heartland Coca-Cola to become the Official Sponsor of the Cardinals Alumni. The partnership doesn’t just connect us with the great history of Cardinals Baseball, but also allows us to give back to the community through youth sports and the Cardinals Care Redbird Rookies program. As a recently established locally-owned bottler, we are thrilled to establish our linkage to the local community through affiliations such as this one.”
In addition to Saturday Signings, the Museum is hosting a new series this year called Flashback Fridays. Before every Friday home game at 4:00 p.m., the Museum will host a presentation about Cardinals history or a museum-related topic from one of the Museum’s staff members, a former player or a visiting author. These presentations will follow the popular Artifact Spotlight presentations, which will continue at 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on home Fridays.
The Museum will continue to host Author Series and the one-of-a-kind Reliving History events, which are exclusive evenings with former players. Guests will get to meet the player, have their photo taken with the athlete and experience a presentation about the player’s career. Each attendee will take home their photograph with the player that has been personally signed by the player. The first Relieving History event occurs this Friday, April 6, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. with Ray Lankford. Tickets are $35 ($30 for Museum members) and can be purchased at cardinals.com/museum.
