Cards to honor '82 champs all weekend vs. Brewers
DENVER -- The Cardinals are set to welcome more than 20 members of the franchise's 1982 world championship club back to St. Louis this weekend for a 30th anniversary celebration. Events honoring that club are planned for all three days of the Cardinals' series against Milwaukee.

Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter will sign autographs at the Busch Stadium Ford Plaza before the Cardinals' game on Friday, and the first 25,000 fans to enter the gate that night will receive a bobblehead in his likeness.

The focal point of the reunion will take place on Saturday, when members of that 1982 team will be paraded around the field and then honored in a pregame ceremony. The Brewers and Cardinals will wear replica jerseys from the '82 season that night.

After wearing their "home" white uniforms on Saturday, the Cardinals will don their "victory blue" road uniforms from 1982 in Sunday's series finale. That game time has been moved to 7:05 p.m. CT to accommodate an ESPN national telecast.

Players and other members of the '82 team who are expected to attend the weekend ceremonies include: Ozzie Smith, Whitey Herzog, Sutter, Red Schoendienst, Keith Hernandez, Ken Oberkfell, Dave LaPoint, Jim Kaat, John Stuper, Jeff Lahti, Steve Mura, John Martin, Doug Bair, Jeff Keener, Tito Landrum, David Green, Gene Roof, Dane Iorg, Mike Ramsey, Glenn Brummer, Joe McDonald and Gene Gieselmann.
