ST. LOUIS, Mo., November 10, 2021 – The St. Louis Cardinals and Cardinals Care, the charitable foundation of the St. Louis Cardinals, announced today that the 26th Annual Winter Warm-Up, the foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year, will be held at Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village January 15-17, 2022.
Activations will be set up both at Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village enabling fans to spread out and enjoy the annual fan fest safely. In addition to the new venue, fans who purchase Winter Warm-Up tickets will also enjoy complimentary access to a tour of the Cardinals Clubhouse and admission to the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum. The Cardinals Clubhouse tour is an exclusive opportunity that only happens during the annual Winter Warm-Up weekend. Also new for 2022, fans will have the option to purchase single day tickets.
Over Winter Warm-Up weekend, fans will enjoy entertainment and live auctions from the Main Stage in Bally Sports Live!, autographs in the Budweiser Brewhouse, Crown Room and PBR, plus special presentations on the third floor of Cardinals Nation. Busch Stadium will serve as the site for the Cardinals Care Store, Silent Auction display, autograph stations, and a vendor hall where fans will find a wide variety of sports memorabilia treasures and more. Activities for kids will also be available throughout the footprint of the event.
“We’re thrilled to bring the annual Winter Warm-Up to Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village to kick off the 2022 baseball season,” said Michael Hall, Vice President of Community Relations & Executive Director of Cardinals Care. “We’re thankful to the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch for their partnership over the years, but with the completion of phase two of Ballpark Village, we now have the room to bring our fans the exciting event that they’ve come to know and love right here at home.”

About Cardinals Care
Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way to team up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community—both on and off the baseball field. Established in 1997, Cardinals Care has invested over $29 million to support St. Louis area children, built or renovated 25 youth ball fields in local under-resourced neighborhoods, and distributed over $15 million in grants to nonprofit organizations. Since 2004, Cardinals Care has also orchestrated the innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free co-ed baseball/softball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play. In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 2,500 kids who participate in the program each year.
