Anyone who lives in St. Louis knows that the Cardinals home opener is celebrated each year by thousands of fans filling up downtown and Busch Stadium in a sea of red! However, not everyone can get tickets to this must see game in St. Louis, we created a tradition to celebrate the hours leading up to game time – the Homers for Health Game Ball Relay, this year GBR18!
Join us for our 6th annual Game Ball Relay on Thursday, April 5 to help us celebrate the Cardinals home opener. The fun begins at 1:30 pm at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital for our kickoff ceremony at the entrance of the hospital. Our grateful patient relay teams will carry the official home opener ball on a journey through the streets of St. Louis to Ballpark Village.
From there, patient D.J. Adams will make the final leg into Busch Stadium and take final lap around the warning track with Cardinals legend Andy Van Slyke!
