April 4th, 2022

In anticipation of Opening Day, the St. Louis Cardinals and Major League Baseball are hosting a “Road To Opening Day” event at the Saint Louis Zoo on Wednesday.

As part of MLB’s league-wide “Enjoy The Show” campaign, which is all about celebrating the various ways fans can enjoy baseball, this event will award fans with free collectibles, ballpark-themed snacks, a chance to rub elbows with baseball greats and team mascots, and other surprises.

The Cardinals’ “Road To Opening Day” event is scheduled to take place from noon to 3 p.m. CT on Wednesday. It will be held at the zoo’s North Entrance inside Forest Park. If inclement weather is in the forecast, a decision to either move forward or postpone the event will come two hours before the scheduled start time.

The Cardinals will begin their 2022 regular season on Thursday vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates. First pitch from Busch Stadium is slated for 3:15 p.m.
