Ultimate Fan Winner to Enjoy Opening Day from President’s Box

ST. LOUIS, Mo., February 6, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals have launched the Third Annual Cardinals Ultimate Fan Video Contest to encourage fans to create videos demonstrating their excitement for the 2017 season.  The fan who establishes him or herself as the ultimate Cardinals fan will win an Ultimate Opening Day VIP experience—four tickets in the President’s private box.

The Third Annual Cardinals Ultimate Fan Video Contest, which runs through March 24, is another in a series of #CardsFanFlix promotions the team has deployed to inspire fans to create and share videos that celebrate the St. Louis Cardinals.  Over one hundred fans have submitted videos as part of the Ultimate Fan promotion.  Robbie Sondag, a minister from Fort Wayne, Indiana, won the 2016 Ultimate Fan contest with a music video he composed, produced and set to a catchy, original song.  Sondag won the first annual contest in 2015 as well with a different original music video.  Given the number of highly creative videos submitted by Cardinals’ fans over the last two seasons as part of the team’s various #CardsFanFlix fan engagement promotions, Sondag will likely face quite a bit of competition if he decides to defend his title in 2017.

“Given how excited our fans are about the start of baseball, we are expecting to see a lot of imaginative videos for what has become one of our most successful annual fan engagement promotions,” said Ron Watermon, Cardinals Vice President of Communications.  “The creativity bar has been set high by the hundreds of fans who have participated in our various #CardsFanFlix challenges over the last two seasons.  We are all looking forward to seeing who will be crowned the Cardinals’ Ultimate Fan in 2017.”

Fans interested in participating in the Third Annual Cardinals Ultimate Fan Video Contest are asked to create a video up to two minutes in length that proves they are the ultimate Cardinals fan.  While fans must respect copyright laws and keep things in good taste, they are encouraged to be creative, show off their talent and convey their enthusiasm for the St. Louis Cardinals.  Fans can submit a video via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo or any other public platform, but in order to be eligible for the contest they must provide the Cardinals a link to the video and complete a short submission form on the contest web page at cardinals.com/ultimatefan.

The Third Annual Ultimate Fan Video Contest is one of several #CardsFanFlix fan engagement initiatives the St. Louis Cardinals have undertaken to encourage fans to create videos that celebrate the team.  Over the last three seasons, hundreds of fans have collectively participated in a number of #CardsFanFlix video engagement promotions including two High School Student Video Challenges, the Cardinals Treasure Hunt Fan Contest, the Molina

#Made4TheBest Fan Video Contest, the #PlayBallLikeACardinal video initiative, the Take Me Out to the Ballgame Music Video contest, the Ultimate Fan Broadcaster Contest, Greatest Postseason Moments Contest, the team’s 2015 season-long #LoveRed2 campaign celebrating Red Schoendienst’s incredible 70+ years in major league baseball and the team’s 2016 season-long #STLisLou campaign celebrating Lou Brock and the St. Louis community.

Fans can join the conversation with #CardsUltimateFan and #CardsFanFlix.   For more information about the Ultimate Fan Video Contest, visit cardinals.com/ultimatefan.

About #CardsFanFlix

Through the #CardsFanFlix fan engagement initiative, the St. Louis Cardinals hope to tap into the increasing trend of user-generated video content made possible by advances with mobile technology and social media.  In light of the growing importance that digital content, online video, social media and mobile based entertainment play in growing the St. Louis Cardinals’ digital community, the team routinely recognizes fans for their extraordinary achievement in digitally promoting the team by awarding the Cardinals’ For Really Entertaining Digital Award (#CardsFREDaward).  Fans can check out FRED award winners and nominate themselves or others at cardinals.com/FREDawards and can learn more about#CardsFanFlix and view fan created videos at cardinals.com/fanflix.

First Ever Solo Stadium Appearance in St. Louis; Only Show in the State of Missouri in 2017

Public On-Sale Friday, February 10 at 10:00AM at cardinals.com/billyjoel

ST. LOUIS, Mo., February 2, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals and Live Nation are proud to announce legendary musician Billy Joel will perform at Busch Stadium on Thursday, September 21, at 8:00 p.m. This performance will be Billy Joel’s first ever solo stadium appearance in St. Louis.  Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale to the general public Friday, February 10, at 10:00 a.m. CT.

“We are thrilled to welcome the ‘Piano Man’ to Busch Stadium,” said Vicki Bryant, Cardinals Vice President of Event Services & Merchandising.  “As one of most revered musicians in the entertainment industry, this promises to be an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime concert that music lovers won’t want to miss.”

In December 2013, Billy Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises—the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty.  Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series.  This unprecedented and wildly successful residency has led to 36 sold-out shows through December 2016.

Billy Joel is one of the biggest concert draws in the world and continues this achievement with an impressive run of sold-out consecutive stadium shows and concert arenas.  Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, scoring 33 consecutive Top 40 hits, Billy Joel ranks as one of the most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history.  The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.  In 2016, the Library of Congress selected “Piano Man” for preservation in the National Recording Registry for its “cultural, historic, and artistic significance.”

In 2014, Billy Joel received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding; entertaining and informing audiences; and inspiring new generations, and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.

In 2013, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States’ top cultural awards.  He is also the recipient of six Grammy® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy® Legend Award.  Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has received numerous industry awards including a TONY AWARD for “Movin’ Out,” a Broadway musical based on Joel’s music.  For his accomplishments as a musician and as a humanitarian, Joel was honored as the 2002 MusiCares Person of the Year by the MusiCares Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Joel has also performed alongside other music greats at two of Madison Square Garden’s most extraordinary benefit concerts – “12-12-12, The Concert For Sandy Relief,” which raised awareness and money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and “The Concert for New York City,” which was hosted to help aid 9/11 victims and heroes.  Joel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, adding another milestone to his extraordinary career.

Tickets will be available at cardinals.com/billyjoel.  American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, February 6, at 10:00 a.m. through Thursday, February 9, at 10:00 p.m.  Cardinals season ticket holders can purchase tickets through a special presale opportunity on Wednesday, February 8, at noon.  General public tickets will go on sale beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, February 10.

ALL-STAR PITCHER SIGNED THRU 2021 WITH OPTIONS FOR 2022 & 2023

ST. LOUIS, Mo., February 2, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have signed All-Star pitcher Carlos Martinez to a five-year contract (2017-21) that also includes club options for 2022 and 2023.   Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.  With today’s signing, the team and Martinez avoid salary arbitration.

“Carlos has demonstrated that he is ready to take his position among the game’s top pitchers for many years to come, and we are pleased to announce that he will be anchoring our starting rotation into the foreseeable future,” stated Cardinals Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak.

Martinez, 25, paced the Cardinals pitching staff in wins (16) and strikeouts (174) last season while making a career-high 31 starts with 195.1 innings pitched.  The hard-throwing right-hander, a National League All-Star in 2015, has delivered 30 wins over the past two seasons (2015-16), ranking 5th among Senior Circuit pitchers.

Martinez’ .618 (34-21) career winning pct. ranks 3rd all-time (min. 50 decisions) among Cardinals pitchers age 25 years or younger, trailing only Howie Pollet (.661) and Dizzy Dean (.651).

The Dominican native, who was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted free-agent in April of 2010, ranked among N.L. leaders in wins (5th), ERA (3.04, 9th), innings pitched (10th), quality starts (20, 6th) and opponent’s batting average (.233, 12th) in 2016.

Against right-handed batters, Martinez limited the opposition to a league-low .269 slugging mark and a .207 batting average, historical marks in Cardinals single-season history.  He allowed a total of just 15 home runs last season (only four against righties) and ranked 4th among N.L. pitchers in HR/9 IP ratio (0.69).

Martinez induced 33 double plays in 2016, ranking 2nd in the majors, while finishing one shy of John Denny’s club single-season record (34 in 1978).  In the field, he led Major League pitchers with 25 putouts and at the plate he had a career-high 14 hits (5th among MLB pitchers) and ranked 4th in pitcher’s batting (.237).

The flamboyant Martinez, popular among Cardinals fans both in the States and in his native Dominican Republic, has developed a strong bond with Cardinals Nation through his Tsunami Waves charitable foundation by giving back to those in need both in St. Louis and his home of Puerto Plata.

Team Reacts to Today’s Release of the Results of the MLB Investigation into the Breach of the Astros Database

ST. LOUIS, MO, January 30, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals Chairman and CEO William O. DeWitt Jr., and Cardinals Senior Vice President and General Manager John Mozeliak, shared their thoughts regarding the results of the Office of Commissioner’s investigation into the breach of the Houston Astros’ database by a former Cardinals employee.

“We respect the Commissioner’s decision and appreciate that there is now a final resolution to this matter,” said DeWitt. “Commissioner Manfred’s findings are fully consistent with our own investigation’s conclusion that this activity was isolated to a single individual.”

When the Cardinals first became aware of the allegations, the team hired former US Attorney Jim Martin and the law firm of Dowd Bennett to conduct an internal investigation of the matter and to assist the United States Justice Department with its investigation.  The Government’s investigation, the team’s investigation and the Commissioner’s investigation all revealed that the breach of the Astros’ database was isolated to the actions of a single individual.

“This has been a long and challenging process for all of us, especially those within our baseball operations department,” said Mozeliak. “We have learned a great deal along the way and we have taken additional steps to ensure that something like this doesn’t ever happen again.”

Saturday’s Winter Warm-Up Schedule Canceled Due to Winter Ice Storm Jupiter

ST. LOUIS, MO, January 13, 2017 –Due to severe winter weather, flight cancelations and treacherous conditions on area roads, the St. Louis Cardinals have announced that they have cancelled the first day (Saturday, January 14th) of the 2017 Winter Warm-Up event at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch.  

At this point, the balance of the Winter Warm-Up Weekend planned for Sunday and Monday remain as scheduled; however, the team will continue to closely monitor the situation to determine if anything should be adjusted due to the inclement weather impacting the region.

“We are very disappointed that we need to cancel the first day of the Warm-Up,” said Michael Hall, Executive Director of Cardinals Care and Vice President of Community Relations. “With a little help from Mother Nature, we look forward to welcoming fans to Sunday and Monday’s activities at the Warm-Up as we kick off the 2017 season by helping kids in our community.”

Fans that purchased autograph tickets for Saturday will be automatically refunded.  All fans that purchased passes for the weekend will also receive a voucher for two complimentary tickets to the 2017 baseball season for every pass purchased (adult and kids passes).  Fans who purchased vouchers on line will automatically receive their complimentary ticket vouchers, while fans that purchased by other means may claim their voucher at the Busch Stadium ticket windows starting on Tuesday, January 17th or by mailing their passes to the Cardinals ticket office (Cardinals Ticket Office/Attention Winter Warm Up/ 700 Clark Street, St. Louis, MO 63102).  Fans that seek to redeem their vouchers via the mail should be sure to include a return mailing address.  For complete schedule, details and other updates, fans should visit www.cardinals.com/winterwarmup
