Proceeds from Sale of Each Shirt Will Directly Benefit Big League Impact & Cardinals Care

ST. LOUIS, Mo., March 21, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals and pitcher Adam Wainwright, in cooperation with Wainwright’s charitable organization, Big League Impact, announced today that the Official Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium will be the exclusive brick and mortar retailer of Adam’s recently launched “Waino’s World” t-shirt.  The soft, stretchy, pre-shrunk shirt is being produced by St. Louis based baseball apparel company, 108 Stitches.

“We approached Adam with the idea to create something fun for the fans to wear on days he pitches,” said Eric Ross, Vice President of 108 Stitches.  “Adam loved the idea and decided that this would be a great way to give back to the St. Louis community and raise money for Big League Impact’s global efforts.”

Available for men and women, the comfortable, tri-blend (50% polyester, 25% cotton, 25% rayon) tee will retail for $36 at the Busch Stadium Team Store.  For every shirt sold, 108 Stitches will donate a portion of the proceeds to Big League Impact and Cardinals Care.  The club is encouraging fans to show their appreciation for Adam by wearing the “Waino’s World” shirt at Busch Stadium on days that he pitches.

“We have the best fans in baseball right here in St. Louis and it fires me up to know that when I pitch they will be wearing these shirts,” said Wainwright. “Not only will they be firing me up, they will be saving and improving lives in St. Louis and around the world.”

Wainwright has spent his entire 12-year major league career in St. Louis and ranks second among the Cardinals all-time strikeout leaders with 1487, trailing only Bob Gibson.  A three-time All-Star, Adam enters the season tied with Dizzy Dean for sixth place in career wins for Cardinals pitchers (134) and last year combined with Yadier Molina to surpass Gibson and Tim McCarver for most career starts as Cardinals battery mates (217).  Wainwright also ranks third among all active MLB pitchers in career ERA (3.17) behind only Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez.

Menu Includes 10 Entrée Selections with Ballpark Staples & New Recipes

Located at 8th & Walnut on Game Days and Available for Lunch Service around Metro Area

ST. LOUIS, Mo., March 21, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced the arrival of the Cardinals Nation Food Truck.  Serving a combination of ballpark fare and unique culinary creations, the #CardsFoodTruck will be located at 8th and Walnut St. on game days, available for corporate and social events and catering and be a part of the Cardinals outreach throughout the St. Louis community.

“The Cardinals Nation Food Truck gives us the opportunity to add to the game day experience around Busch Stadium,” said Bill DeWitt III, President of the St. Louis Cardinals.  “It also allows us to take Cardinals Nation Restaurant on the road and bring the ballpark atmosphere to our fans around the region.”

The food truck menu consists of 10 entrée offerings including fan favorites from the Cardinals Nation Restaurant like the Cardinals Nation Nachos and Four Cheese Mac & Cheese, along with fun new selections such as Bacon Ribs and the Twisted Cheddar Brat.  In addition to taking part in local fairs and festivals, Cardinals fans will even see the truck on streets around the city for lunch service.

“We are using a lot of local products to put together our menu,” said Nate Green, Cardinals Nation Director of Operations, who will oversee the Cardinals Nation Food Truck. “Products like G&W sausages and hot dogs, Companion Bread Co., and A Different Twist Pretzel Company really help make these fun menu choices a reality.”

The idea for the food truck began last year as a way of extending the Cardinals Nation Restaurant brand.  The food truck started as a 20-foot diesel truck from Degel Truck Center in Hazelwood, Mo. and then made its way to Schantz Manufacturing in Highland, Ill. for a custom box kitchen build.

“As a local company working with our local team, we are proud to have the opportunity to build the Cardinals Nation Food Truck for the St. Louis Cardinals organization and think it will be the best food truck in the industry,” said Mike Schantz, President of Schantz Manufacturing.

Fans can follow the #CardsFoodTruck on Twitter @CardsFoodTruck, on the Cardinals website at cardinals.com/foodtruck and on the Cardinals Nation Facebook page at facebook.com/cardinalsnation for weekly truck location announcements.  Booking opportunities are available by calling 314.345.9880 or emailing foodtruck@cardinals.com.

Initiatives Include 8 Spanish Language Audio Broadcasts & Launch of Spanish Language Facebook Page

Club to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage with Return of ‘Fiesta Cardenales’ Theme Day on June 11

ST. LOUIS, Mo., March 16, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced a number of new Spanish language initiatives in a continuing effort to better reach the team’s rapidly growing domestic and international fan base.

The Cardinals will stream eight Spanish language home audio broadcasts via cardinals.com and the MLB.com At Bat mobile app.  The club will produce the broadcasts in cooperation with La Ke Buena Spanish internet radio to provide game play-by-play from announcer Polo Ascencio and color commentary from former Cardinals Assistant Hitting Coach Bengie Molina on Opening Day (April 2), April 4 & 9, May 2-3 and May 29-31.

“We’re proud to once again partner with the St. Louis Cardinals to produce eight Spanish home audio broadcasts,” said Brenda Garcia, Owner of La Ke Buena.  “We received tremendous feedback after the Cardinals’ first-ever Spanish home radio broadcasts last September and we look forward to streaming more Spanish broadcast games this year on cardinals.com.”

In addition to the Spanish audio broadcasts, the Cardinals have added Fiesta Cardenales to the 2017 theme ticket schedule.  The team welcomes all members of the Latino and Hispanic community to Busch Stadium for a cultural celebration on Sunday, June 11 when the Redbirds take on the Philadelphia Phillies at 1:15 p.m.  Fans who purchase the special Fiesta Cardenales theme ticket will receive a one-of-a-kind Cardenales cap.  Guests will be able to enjoy a pregame event featuring current Cardinals players and music in Riverview Corner.  Additionally, a portion of each ticket sold will benefit the Hispanic Educational Cultural & Scholarship Fund.  Fans can visit cardinals.com/theme to purchase tickets for Fiesta Cardenales or for more information.

The team has also recently launched a Spanish language Facebook page at facebook.com/stlcardenales to continue providing Hispanic and Latino fans with social content in their native language.  2016 saw engagement on existing Spanish language accounts grow by 244% on Facebook alone.  Mexico accounts for over 4.5 million Facebook fans across all MLB and team accounts.

Last season, the Cardinals launched @cardenales, a Spanish language Twitter account.  The account has amassed over 3,300 followers.  In addition to the @cardenales Twitter account, the Cardinals also established Los Cardenales, a video topic page on cardinals.com to house Spanish-language video features the Cardinals are producing as part of their expanding video brand journalism efforts.  The Los Cardenales video page can be found at cardinals.com/loscardenales.
