Tickets go on sale April 26 for Purina Pooches in the Ballpark


ST. LOUIS, Mo. (April 25, 2013) - It's time once again for St. Louis canines to "bark" on the Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Saturday, June 22 for the ninth annual Purina® Pooches in the Ballpark event, presented by Schnucks®.

More than 200 dogs, along with their owners, are invited to sit in a special "pooches" section of the ballpark. Tickets for this year's event go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. at cardinals.com/pooches. The cost is $115 per person (dogs get in the stadium for free) and tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets to last year's game sold out in under a week, so St. Louis dog owners are encouraged to act fast to secure their seats and enjoy a night at the ballpark with their four-legged friends. The first ever "pooches" night game, against the Texas Rangers, will be an evening of fun-filled events including:

  • Canine Cardinals Fan Costume Parade                          4:45 p.m.
    • All four-legged ticket holders (and their owners) will show off their favorite Cardinals gear in a pre-game costume parade on the Busch Stadium field.
  • Purina® Incredible Dog Team Performance                   5:00 p.m.
    • Watch as these incredibly talented, athletic canines will snatch flying discs out of the air while performing some amazing tricks. The Purina® Incredible Dog Team travels across the country performing at sporting events, on television shows and a variety of other public events.
  • Purina® Pooches in the Ballpark                                    6:15 p.m.
    • More than 200 canine Cardinals fans will join their owners in the designated "pooch" section of Busch Stadium to cheer on a victory against the Rangers.
