First Pitch

Here's how it works:

  • Every game day during the regular season, the first 275 customers at the Busch Stadium 8th Street Ticket Windows, located near Gate 3, will be able to purchase a voucher entitling them to two (2) tickets for that day's game for just $11.20. (Please note: all fans purchasing the First Pitch Tickets voucher will be asked to show a picture ID at the time of purchase.)
  • First Pitch Ticket sales begin at 10:00am on the day of the game. Sales will conclude when Gates open on Day Games and 4 hours prior to Game Time on evening games, or until all vouchers are sold (whichever comes first).
  • Limit one (1) voucher per game
  • The tickets - a virtual grab bag of locations returned to the ticket office by Cardinals players, the visiting club, sponsors, groups and others - may be anywhere within the ballpark, from Field to Terrace level or Standing Room Only.
  • Ten minutes before game time, (ie. 7:05 p.m. for a 7:15 p.m. game) fans will be asked to produce their picture ID along with their voucher at the "First Pitch Tickets" sign - located at Gate 1 on Broadway - to claim their tickets. Tickets will be in sealed envelopes and distributed on a completely random basis. Exchanges will not be permitted.
  • Fans must immediately enter the ballpark through Gate 1 once they have received their tickets.
  • Tickets will be distributed at the First Pitch Tickets entrance until 15 minutes after scheduled game time.
  • Only 275 ticket pairs - or 550 tickets total - will be available for each home game throughout the 2022 season.
  • Fans purchasing First Pitch Vouchers are not guaranteed to receive any promotional items given away at the gates.
