2014 Show-Me Bowl Will Not Be Moved

MSHSAA Website

Columbia, Mo.- The Missouri State High School Activities Association staff continues their planning for the 2014 Show-Me Bowl games at the Edward Jones Dome on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 28-29th.

"The Show-Me Bowl is not just hard-hitting, heart-pounding excitement. It is an opportunity for communities to come together," said Dr. Kerwin Urhahn, the Association's Executive Director. "It is a life-long memory for not just the players on the field, the members of the marching band or cheerleading squads, it is a memory for parents, administrators and coaches as well. MSHSAA is dedicated to the safety of the students on the field and off, as well as the supporters which follow the teams. Everyone attending the Show-Me Bowl deserves to enjoy their time attending the games."

The Association staff has been in touch with a number of state and local agencies in an effort to be as informed as possible when making decisions regarding this year's Show-Me Bowl.

"We have spoken with both local and state authorities, in addition to local schools and participating schools in the playoffs. We are excited about playing the Show-Me Bowl at the Edward Jones Dome. After visiting with the different entities, we feel the Dome as well as the City of St. Louis will be safe places for our schools and their fans to celebrate their teams accomplishments this year," said Urhahn.

This will mark the 47th year for the Show-Me Bowl games. The pinnacle of high school football in the state of Missouri has been played at the Jones Dome since 1996. In 2008, the 8-man championship game was moved to the Jones Dome as well. There will be a total of seven games played over the two-days, with four games on Friday and three games on Saturday.

Football: PHS Season Ends

The Hillsboro Hawks ran by the PHS Pirates 66-18 in the first round of Class 4 district play at Hillsboro Friday night.

Chris Walsh ran for 292 yards and 5 scores for the Hawks. The speedster put the Hawks up 14-0 in the first quarter on TD runs of 61 and 60 yards. He added an 85-yard kickoff return for his third TD in the second. His fourth and fifth scores came on runs of 52 and 94 yards in the third.

Walsh was not the only Hillsboro runner to burn the Pirate defense. Trey Terry ran for over 200 yards and two scores. He had TD runs of 50 and 99 yards in the third quarter.

All of the Pirate scoring came in the second quarter when PHS had TD pass plays of 5, 41, and 31-yards.

Brandon Renaud found Garrett Dix for the 5-yard TD and hit Trevor Green for the 31-yard TD. Green on a half-back pass connected with Austin Bachmann on the 41-yard TD.

"We were still in the game before the half but lost our momentum when we were flagged on a pass interference call," PHS coach Mike Wojtczuk said.

It was 30-18 at the half but the second half belonged to Hillsboro.

"They were big upfront and had a great backfield. We still ran for 170 yards and passed for 445 yards," Wojtczuk said.

The Pirates who were the sixth seed in the district ended their season at 2-8.

Hillsboro (8-2) the third seed will advance to play Festus. The Tigers defeated North County 38-29 Friday.

In the other district games Cape Central walloped DeSoto 49-14 and Sikeston blasted Farmington 55-14.

Football: Indians Advance; Valle Awaits

St. Vincent defeated Barat Acedemy 35-8 in the opening round of the Class 1 District 1 playoff.

The Indians have now won four straight after starting the season 0-5.

The fourth-seeded Indians forced five turnovers and allowed just 181 yards of total offense in handling the fifth-seeded Eagles.

"We know what the deal is," coach Nathan Rowland said. "Half the teams in the state aren't playing any more.....this was a high energy, physical game. We were just happy to come out with a win."

Defensively, the Indians were as sound as they had been all year. They forced turnovers on the Eagles' first two possessions. Cole Steinbecker opened the scoring with a 1 yard run, then hauled in an interception, then scored again a series later for a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Barat Academy Quarterback Luke Lampros scored from three yards out midway through the second quarter, and passed his way to the two point conversion.

The Eagles would score no more.

A short-handed Eagles team found the Indian offense and defense unrelenting.

"17, 18 players on the roster, not all of them suited up, that really will make a difference," Rowland said. "But...you can only play with 11, so if you have 12, it's still 11-on-11 football. We're trying to take care of the 11 on the field and not worry how many are over there (on the sideline)."

Nick Cissell intercepted a pass at the Eagles' 41, and St. Vincent acored on a Riley Riehn two yard run. The halftime score was 21-8.

St. Vincent scored with Riehn twice again in the second half; once on a 20 yard pass, and another on a 43 yard run.

There has been a lot of concern, though, for QB Joe Whistler. During a pileup, someone landed on his exposed ankle, causing Rowland to pull him halfway through the fourth quarter. He was seen sporting crutches after the game.

"Just being careful," Rowland said. We're not doctors."

A match up of the opening game is in the works. Valle will host St. Vincent Friday with a 7 p.m. kick.

Brad Palmer will have the game on KSGM, AM-980.

How they scored:

First Quarter

SV -- Cole Steinbecker 2 run (Steinbecker kick)

SV -- Steinbecker 39 run (Steinbecker kick)

Second Quarter

Eagles -- Luke Lampros 3 run (Lampros pass to Williams Burns)

SV -- Riley Riehn 2 yard run (Steinbecker kick)

Third Quarter

SV -- Riehn 20 pass from Joe Whistler (Steinbecker kick)

Fourth Quarter

SV -- Riehn 44 run (Steinbecker kick)

Football: Rams Spoil Pirates Homecoming 28-13

Despite generating over 300 yards total offense, the Perryville Pirates fell to the Scott City Rams 28-13 for homecoming.

"Just couldn't push it in," said coach Mike Woitczuk. "Every time we would put ourselves in a position to succeed, here come the mistakes."

The Pirates passing attack accounted for 215 yards, and they added 125 on the ground...but it wasn't enough.

Perryville (2-7) turned the ball over on downs on its opening possession, leading to a Rams 52-yard touchdown run. The Scott City QB appeared to be down twice, but his lower body never touched the field while he broke two tackles on the way to the end zone. The two-point conversion gave the Rams an 8-0 lead about halfway in the first quarter.

After another PHS punt, Scott City started on its own 13. After a couple plays, the defense gave up a 69-yard reception with 1:39 left in the first quarter. "Just blew the coverage," Woitczuk said.

PHS moved the ball well on the ensuing kickoff. They would pick apart the Rams defense and get the ball to the one-yard line on a 4th and goal, but would give up the ball on downs. Trevor Green would recover a fumble at the 14, though, and the Pirates cut into the lead. QB Brandon Renaud found Austin Mills for 28 yards and the TD. The Kameron Fears XP would make the score 14-7, Scott City.

It would be the closest the Pirates would get.

Scott City scored 2:32 remaining in the half, and a Ram interception gave the Rams a 28-7 lead at the half.

No one scored in the second half until Renaud found Green for a touchdown with under 1:40 left to play.

"Rough going today," Woitczuk said. "But, I tell you what, I liked a lot of what I saw out there. Brandon (Renaud) is really coming around; he really led the offense today. We just had missed opportunities at almost every turn."

The Pirates now travel to Hillsboro this Friday for a District contest. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

St. Vincent wins 27-14 at Jefferson

PERRYVILLE - The St. Vincent Indians surprised Jefferson R-7 27-14 Friday night in Festus.

The Indians earned the 4th seed in the Class 1, District 1 playoffs and will open hosting 5th seeded Barat Academy this Friday night.

The Indian's first score against Jefferson came on a 35-yard interception return by Cole Steinbecker.

The Lancers responded with 2 scores to lead 14-7 after the 1st quarter.

But St. Vincents answered with two TD passes by quarterback Joe Whistler to own a 20-14 at the half.

Whistler's second TD toss to Trevor Leible in the second half gave the Indians the 27-14 win.

Steinbecker, David Camarillo and Nick Cissel each had interceptions for the Indians.

A win over Barat this Friday would set up a rematch with Valle Catholic. The undefeated state ranked Warriors are the top seed in the district. They defeated the Indians 56-0 in the season opener at Valle.

Indians Win Homecoming!


Despite committing six penalties, the St. Vincent Indians held off Grandview 28-7 on homecoming Friday.

Coach Nathan Rowland did remind us afterward, though, that six penalties was their season low, and their offensive output was their season high.

"The holding penalties, for both teams really, were more the result of a sloppy field than anything," coach Nathan Rowland said later. "The tendency of someone falling is to grab on."

Grandview committed 12 penalties for 95 yards in the loss.

After being shut down for negative yardage in the first half, running back Riley Riehn would lead the tribe with three touchdowns and a total output of over 100 yards.

The only scoring in the first half was a Tyler Monier interception pick-six. He intercepted Grandview quarterback Sam Huskey on the Eagles' 35-yard line, got a block, and scored. Cole Steinbecker added the extra point for a 7-0 advantage.

St. Vincent scored in seven plays to start the second half. Tyson Whistler completed a 15-yard pass to Kaleb Schnurbusch on a critical fourth down play on the Grandview 37, then Schnurbusch caught a ball for 16 more. Riehn scored on a pass 2 plays later, and the Indians wouldn't look back.

Riehn scored again the next time the Indians had the ball, taking a Whistler pass in from 15 yards. The drive followed a fumble recovery by Luke Wibbenmeyer.

Riehn would score his third touchdown of the game on a 31-yard run in the fourth quarter to seal the deal.

"I have no doubt we're going in the right direction, in all things as part of the game, but...the challenge will be to stay on course in the coming week," Rowland said. "We did positive things on offense, but it all comes down to our defense this time of year...making big plays.

SV -- Tyler Monier 35 yard interception return (Cole Steinbecker kick) 7:31

Football: SVHS gets first win, beating Crystal City

PERRYVILLE -- The St. Vincent Indians honored their seniors, the state championship class of 2004, and got their first win of the season defeating Crystal City Friday night 34-14.

It was also the first win for new head coach Nathan Rowland who said it felt great to finally get the monkey off our backs.

"We had not been playing as well as we could," Rowland said.

The Indians (1-5) broke out to a 14-0 led in the first quarter and were up 20-7 at the half.

Following an interception at the Hornets ten yard line quarterback Joe Whistler ran for the first of his four TD's. The nine-yard run with 10:26 in the opening period gave the Indians a 7-0 lead.

With 6:43 in the first, sophomore defensive end, Luke Wibbenmeyer picked off a Crystal City pass and returned it 35 yards to give the Indians a 14-0 lead.

"That play was the big turning point in this game," Rowland said.

With the lead and a new found confidence, Whistler found David Camarillo on a 25-yard TD pass and with 2:15 to play in the half St. Vincent's went up 20-0.

The Hornets got their first score of the half on a fourth down play with 59 seconds before the break. Hornet quarterback Brent Hibbits 18-yard TD throw made it 20-8 at the half.

Rowland said Whistler rallied the team at the break and they wanted to win one for the seniors.

The Indian coach said, "We played a good first half and then we finally put a complete game together."

In the third Whistler scored again. This time on a two-yard run and with 2:59 to play in the period the Indians led 27-8.

With 11:12 in the fourth Whistler ran in from seven yards out and the Indians led 34-8.

Crystal City (2-4) added a one-yard TD run with 4:48 left to play to make the final 34-14.

Rowland said having players from the 2004 championship season at the game Friday night inspired his team.

"Our defense played really well. We were in their backfield all night causing them problems," Rowland said.

The Indian's defense had nine sacks and Zach Baudendistel blocked a punt which led to a score. They forced five turnovers.

"We had a lot of contributors," Rowland said.

Rowland said the punting of Cole Steinbecker forced the Hornets to start drives from their 10, five and one.

"His deep punts were a real weapon for us."

The Indian defense held the Crystal City ground game to only 46 yards and 38 of those were by Hibbits. The Hornets leading rusher was held to only nine yards on 10 carries.

Hibbits threw for 245 yards in the game but only one score and he suffered 4 interceptions.

Tyler Monier had two of the picks and Trevor Leible and Steinbecker also had interceptions.

The Hornets out gained the Indians 291-208 yards in the game.

While St. Vincents rushed for 112 yards Whistler was 7 of 15 in the air for 96 yards.

"Our offense produced in the red zone tonight," Rowland said.

The coach said there was a look of relief on his players faces after the win.

"We want to build on this and establish some momentum for the last few games and upcoming playoffs, " he said.

St. Vincents will travel to St. Pius this Friday night. Last year the Lancers spoiled the Indian homecoming winning 26-13.

St. Pius (2-4) is coming off a 31-8 loss to Fr. Tolton Catholic. They also lost to PHS 23-17. Their wins have been over Southern Boone (27-26), Grandview (41-12), Jefferson R-7 (63-13) and Herculaneum (28-20).

Cardinals announce pitching changes

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced changes to their pitching staff yesterday, recalling left-handed pitcher Sam Freeman and right-handed pitcher Jorge Rondon from Memphis (AAA). The team also announced that left-handed pitcher Tyler Lyons (left shoulder strain) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and that right-handed reliever Eric Fornataro was optioned to Memphis.

Freeman, 26, who has appeared in 37 combined games (1-2, 4.18 ERA) with the Cardinals over the 2012 and 2013 seasons, was 0-1 with a 3.78 ERA in 13 games (16.2 IP) for Memphis this season. The 6-1, 165-pound lefty has allowed just two earned runs (1.50 ERA) over his last 10 appearances dating to April 12, striking out 16 batters in 12.0 IP.

Rondon, 26, who has spent eight-plus seasons in the minors, will be making his Major League debut with his first game appearance. The Calabozo, Venezuela native is a product of the Cardinals former Venezuelan Summer League team where he began his professional career in 2006 after signing as a non-drafted international free-agent in July of that year.

The 6-1, 215-pound Rondon was 1-0 with a 2.51 ERA in 11 games (14.1 IP) at Memphis this season. He has not allowed an earned run in his past five games (8.0 IP) since April 25.

Freeman will wear uniform no. 71 and Rondon will wear no. 68. Both players were expected to be in uniform for last night’s game against the Chicago Cubs.

Jason Motte and Cardinals partner to strike out cancer

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – On Tuesday, September 2nd, the Cardinals and pitcher Jason Motte will join forces to fight cancer during the 2014 Strike Out Cancer Theme Night at Busch.

Fans who purchase the special Strike Out Cancer Theme Ticket will receive a ticket to that night’s game (7:15 p.m. vs. Pittsburgh Pirates) as well as a one-of-a-kind Jason Motte bobblehead featuring the Cardinals pitcher in his popular "K Cancer" t-shirt. Fans may also purchase a VIP ticket for Strike Out Cancer Night which includes a pre-game meet-and-greet with Jason Motte (one autograph per VIP ticket), in addition to the game ticket and bobblehead. A portion of each ticket sold will benefit childhood cancer research in St. Louis.

"Fan support for the Strike Out Cancer effort has been amazing," said Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte. "I’m really looking forward to our night at the ballpark as it promises to be a nice way to honor cancer survivors, support those still fighting their battle, and remember those we have lost."

What began in 2010 as a small idea to provide support for cancer patients has evolved into the mission of the Jason Motte Foundation led by Jason and his wife Caitlin. In addition to the Theme Night and hosting annual fundraisers in Memphis, Tennessee, the Foundation partnered with locally-based t-shirt company 108 Stitches last year to produce a "K Cancer" t-shirt which benefits the cause. Earlier this year, Jason and 108 Stitches rolled out t-shirts league-wide in every team’s colors. Each t-shirt is promoted by a different player who agreed to join Motte’s effort. For each shirt sold, $5 will go to the Jason Motte Foundation and $5 to a charity of that player's choice.

"At the end of the day, we’re just trying to get the word out and raise money to help," said Motte. "I’m fortunate to have this platform and to be able to do my part to give back."

Tickets for the Theme Night are on sale now at cardinals.com/theme.

Strike Out Cancer Night is just one of the many unique personalized Theme Ticket promotions planned for the 2014 season. Theme Tickets are customized promotions that allow a select number of fans to celebrate a common interest while enjoying access to a unique promotional item and/or exclusive pre-game event. Targeted around different occupations, organizations, communities, celebrities and more, Theme Tickets let fans enjoy the game in a whole new way. Fans can learn more about Cardinals Theme Tickets at cardinals.com/theme.

About the Jason Motte Foundation

The mission of the Jason Motte Foundation is to provide comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds. The seed for the Jason Motte Foundation was planted in the fall of 2010 when Jason and Caitlin Motte asked, "what can we do to help?" At the time, Caitlin’s grandfather, Lynn Doyle, was a cancer patient at The West Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee. Jason and Caitlin saw a sign that mentioned a need for blankets and wondered what more they could do to help. That question led to the formation of the Strike Out Cancer with Jason Motte Foundation. The Motte family uses the monies raised towards research all while providing comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.

Cardinals announce details for Christian Day

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced details for the 24th Annual Christian Day at the Ballpark on Saturday, August 2nd which features a post-game program with keynote speaker Marcus Luttrell, retired Navy SEAL whose bestselling book Lone Survivor inspired the 2013 motion picture of the same name.

Christian Day at the Ballpark is a day of faith, fellowship, and baseball, which begins when the Cardinals take on the Milwaukee Brewers at 6:15 p.m. Following the game, all fans are encouraged to stay for a special post-game program emceed by broadcaster Rick Horton featuring Luttrell and Cardinal players sharing their testimonies in faith. A popular event every season, past Christian Day events have included featured speakers such as Willie Robertson, Lou Brock, Mike Singletary, Kurt Warner, Tony Dungy, Mike Matheny and Adam Wainwright.

"Christian Day is a wonderful day of faith and baseball that we look forward to every summer. This year we are extremely honored to have Marcus Luttrell joining us at Busch Stadium to share his incredible story," said Joe Strohm, Vice President of Ticket Sales.

In 2005, during Operation Redwing’s mission to gather intelligence on a Taliban leader with ties to Osama bin Laden, Luttrell’s four-man team of Navy SEALs was ambushed on a remote ridge. Heavily outnumbered, Marcus Luttrell and his teammates valiantly fought for hours, displaying characteristic SEAL determination and bravery, until Luttrell was the last man standing. Badly wounded, it would be five nights after the nightmare began before Luttrell was rescued.

To honor his lost comrades, Luttrell established the Lone Survivor Foundation dedicated to honoring and remembering American warriors by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces service members and families.

For more information, or to purchase tickets, fans can visit cardinals.com/christianday. Both individual and group tickets are available for the event through this page. All fans are invited to stay for the post-game program, regardless of ticket-type.

Cardinals Hall Of Fame induction class announced

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Wednesday that Jim Edmonds, Willie McGee, Mike Shannon and Marty Marion will be inducted into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame presented by Edward Jones on Saturday, August 16th. This is the first induction class since the team dedicated the Cardinals Hall of Fame with an Inaugural Class on Opening Day in St. Louis earlier this month.

"We are proud to enshrine this elite group of Cardinals whose outstanding achievements have earned them the honor of permanently joining the greatest names in Cardinals history in our Hall of Fame," said Bill DeWitt Jr., Cardinals Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We congratulate each of them on this tremendous honor and look forward to celebrating their achievements in August during Induction Weekend."

The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame was established as a way to recognize the exceptional careers and significant achievements of the greatest players in Cardinals history, as well as those who have made exceptional contributions to the organization. To be eligible, players must have played for the Cardinals for at least three seasons and must be retired as a player from Major League Baseball for at least three years. The eligible pool of players is divided into two categories, ‘modern players’ and ‘veteran players.’ If a player retired more than 40 years prior to the induction year, he is classified as a veteran player.

Each member of the Cardinals Hall of Fame is permanently enshrined in the new Cardinals Hall of Fame Gallery presented by Edward Jones that is located on the second floor of Cardinals Nation in Ballpark Village, just outside the entrance to the team’s new museum. The Hall of Fame Gallery is free and open to the public. The plaques

that adorn the gallery are being produced by Matthews International, the company that also produces the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

On Opening Day, the Cardinals dedicated the Hall of Fame with an Inaugural Class, consisting of 22 Cardinals who are either enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame as Cardinals or whose number has been retired by the club. The 2014 Induction Class is the first class to be inducted into the new Hall of Fame that was selected via a formal process which includes fans, baseball experts and the team.

"We want to thank our fans and the Red Ribbon Panel for choosing an outstanding first induction class," said Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III. "It wasn’t easy to make a selection from a list of the truly greatest players in team history."

Chosen by the fans, McGee and Edmonds were the top two vote-getters in the first-ever online Cardinals Hall of Fame ballot presented by Edward Jones. The ballot, which also included Cardinals legends Bob Forsch, Keith Hernandez, Mark McGwire, Matt Morris, Ted Simmons and Joe Torre, was selected by a Red Ribbon Panel of Cardinals baseball experts through a secret ballot process. Nearly 80,000 votes were cast by Cardinals fans over the seven-week voting period.

In addition to nominating modern players for fan balloting, the Red Ribbon Panel of Cardinals baseball experts also elected legendary shortstop Marty Marion, a veteran player, for induction using a secret ballot process. Marion, the 1944 National League Most Valuable Player and seven-time All-Star, played 11 seasons with the Cardinals including three World Championship seasons in 1942, ’44 and ’46.

Independent of the Red Ribbon Panel selection process, the Cardinals organization retained the right to annually induct an individual who has been an important figure in Cardinals history and whose contributions to the franchise warrant induction. This year’s selection is Mike Shannon, a lifelong St. Louisan who has been part of the Cardinals family for more than half a century. Mike had a notable playing career with the team followed by more than 40 years in the radio booth as one of most popular broadcasters in team history.

The 2014 Cardinals Induction Class will be formally enshrined at a ceremony on Saturday, August 16th during the 2014 Cardinals Hall of Fame Induction Weekend.

Following is a description of each Inductee’s career as a Cardinal:

Jim Edmonds (Modern Era Player – Fan Selection)

Jim Edmonds joined the Cardinals in 2000 and played eight seasons, making the postseason in six of them and playing in two World Series, winning in 2006. The three-time All-Star won six consecutive Gold Gloves from 2000-05. He ranks 4th on the Cardinals all-time home run list with 241 and hit the game-ending home run in the 11th inning of Game 6 of the 2004 NLCS.

Willie McGee (Modern Era Player – Fan Selection)

Willie McGee played in 13 seasons with the Cardinals, playing in 1661 games, 9th all-time in franchise history. He was a four-time All-Star, won three Gold Gloves and was the 1985 National League MVP with league leading marks of a .353 batting average, 18 triples and 216 hits, while stealing 56 bases. McGee played in three World Series, winning as a rookie in 1982 when he finished third in the Rookie of the Year voting. He is one of six players to steal over 300 bases with the Cardinals, swiping 301.

Mike Shannon (Team Selection)

Mike Shannon played all nine years of his career with the St. Louis Cardinals from 1962-70. He was a member the World Championship clubs in 1964 and 1967 and National League champions of 1968, a year in which he was seventh in the NL MVP voting. Shannon hit three home runs in the World Series including his final post-season at bat in Game 7 of the 1968 World Series. He entered the broadcast booth in 1972 following his retirement as a player due to kidney disease. Mike has been an exceptional and extremely popular broadcaster for the Cardinals for 43 years.

Marty Marion (Veteran Era Player – Red Ribbon Panel Selection)

Marty Marion played 11 seasons with the Cardinals and was a seven-time all-star. Known as "Slats" or "The Octopus", he was among the Top 10 in NL MVP voting three times, winning the award during the Cardinals 1944 World Championship season. Marion helped the Cardinals win World Championships in 1942, 1944 and 1946.

Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum (#CardsMuseum)

The new 8,000 square foot state-of-the art St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum on the second floor of Cardinals Nation in Ballpark Village celebrates the rich history of baseball in St. Louis and the legacy of one of baseball’s most storied franchises. The Cardinals’ museum collection is the largest team-held collection in baseball and is second only to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in terms of size with over 16,000 memorabilia items and hundreds of thousands of archival photographs. Fans can learn more about the museum at cardinals.com/museum.

Cardinals Nation (#CardsNation)

The first phase of Ballpark Village is anchored by a first-of-its-kind 34,000 square foot venue on four levels called Cardinals Nation. Cardinals Nation is comprised of four key elements: a two-story restaurant and bar, an 8,000 square foot world-class Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum, a Cardinals Authentics retail store featuring game used memorabilia on the first floor, and a 330-seat roof top deck with spectacular game views and an all-inclusive experience unlike anything in baseball today. The Cardinals Nation restaurant features a high-energy, memorabilia-infused space designed by the internationally acclaimed Jeffrey Beers International. There are three separate patios, two large bars, and unparalleled sports viewing with large flat screen TVs and other multimedia features. Cardinals Nation sets a new standard for sports-inspired restaurants. The AT&T Rooftop at Cardinals Nation features ticketed seats looking into Busch Stadium and includes amenities such as all-inclusive food and beverage, a complimentary ticket to the Cardinals museum, Busch Stadium audio/visual feeds, and access to other areas within Ballpark Village. Cardinals Nation is the official headquarters for Cardinals fans who want to stay connected to the team year-round.

Ballpark Village (#BallparkVillage)

The construction of Ballpark Village represents the next step in the Cardinals’ vision for their investment in downtown St. Louis that began with the opening of the privately financed, $411 million Busch Stadium in 2006. Ballpark Village is a mixed-use retail, entertainment, office, and residential district being developed in partnership by the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cordish Companies. Spanning seven city blocks on the 10-acre site just north of Busch Stadium, Ballpark Village will be the first master-planned mixed-use development designed to complement the excitement and energy of the Major League Baseball game day experience to a new neighborhood outside the stadium walls.

Cardinals host 5th Annual Green Week at Busch

ST. LOUIS – In celebration of the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, the St. Louis Cardinals will host their 5th annual Green Week (#4aGreenerGame), April 22 through April 30, with activities designed to promote recycling, both inside and outside of Busch Stadium. Following is a listing of the week’s events:

MERS/Goodwill Computer E-Cycling Drive on Tuesday, April 22, 2014

The Cardinals will host a computer and electronics recycling and general donations drive in collaboration with Goodwill. Fans may drop off unused or unwanted computers and electronic equipment at trailers in Parking Lot C, located at the corner of 8th Street and Cerre Street, immediately south of I-64/40. All items will be accepted free of charge, and donors do not need to sort their items prior to dropping them off. Computers and computer accessories, phones (home and cell), clocks, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, AV equipment including cable and satellite boxes, and any other electronic devices and general donations will be accepted in any condition. Goodwill will also accept any of your clothing, furniture, home décor, and housewares. All donations are tax deductible, and Goodwill will provide receipts for items donated. In return, fans donating will receive a voucher good for half off Cardinals tickets. The event will run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit cardinals.com/greenweek or mersgoodwill.org. The revenue generated from the sale of your donations is used to further MERS/Goodwill’s mission of providing opportunities for persons with barriers to employment to work and live more independently in the community. The primary focus and success of MERS/Goodwill’s employment and rehabilitation programs is in their ability to prepare people for the world of work.

Friday, April 25 through Wednesday, April 30

The Cardinals, in partnership with Shoeman Water Projects, will collect shoes at Busch Stadium gates before the games on Friday, April 25 through Sunday, April 27. Fans are asked to clean out their closets of any unwanted shoes, tie or band them together, and drop them in the designated shoe collection bags. Shoeman Water Projects creates clean drinking water for those in need by selling shoes to exporters for resale and then using the money generated from those sales to purchase well-drilling rigs and water purification systems in developing countries.

On Tuesday, April 29, Operation Food Search will recognize the Cardinals and the team’s concessionaire, Delaware North Companies, in an on-field ceremony prior to the game. Together, the Cardinals and Delaware North Companies diverted nearly 13,000 pounds of unused food from concessions stands in Busch Stadium to Operation Food Search in 2013, which reduced the amount of waste going to landfills. When food decomposes in landfills, it becomes a source of greenhouse gas emissions. The Cardinals are exceeding their food recovery goals, which results in decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and slowing climate change.

With the help of Ameren Missouri Pure Power, the Cardinals will offset energy consumption by purchasing renewable energy credits (recs) for the duration of Green Week. By purchasing recs, the Cardinals will offset 100% of the energy used at Busch Stadium for the games during Green Week.

During Green Week, and all season long, the St. Louis Cardinals Green Team volunteers walk down the aisles of the seating bowl in-between innings and collect recyclables from fans while promoting recycling at Busch Stadium. In exchange for their services, they are able to watch the game in standing room only sections of Busch Stadium, as collections are only done in-between innings and during pitching changes so as not to disturb fans trying to watch the game. To volunteer, e-mail 4agreenergame@cardinals.com, or for more information, visit cardinals.com/green.

This week and throughout the season, fans are also encouraged to donate new or gently used baseball and softball equipment at a special bin located at the Family Pavilion in Busch Stadium, as part of "Rawlings Replay." "Rawlings Replay," which was established in 2011, supports Redbird Rookies, the flagship program of Cardinals Care, which provides disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to play baseball for free, as well as a variety of other support services. Fans are also encouraged to donate at St. Louis area Johnny Mac’s locations and receive a special discount in-store on new Rawlings products. Members of the Cardinals Kids Club (cardinals.com/kidsclub) receive an additional voucher, good for two tickets to a game, if donations are made at Johnny Mac’s.

Since the launch of 4 A Greener Game (#4aGreenerGame) in 2008, the Cardinals have diverted nearly 2,400 tons of solid waste from local landfills, and Busch Stadium continues to become more energy efficient through participation in Ameren Missouri’s Business Energy Efficiency Program.

The team has reduced energy use by 20% and water use by 10% since the new stadium opened in 2006.

34% of the team’s waste was diverted from landfills in 2013.

On average, four tons of trash are recycled at Busch Stadium each game.

550 recycling bins are located throughout Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday that Senior Vice President and General Manager John Mozeliak has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the team through the 2018 season.

"Over the last six seasons Mo has done an outstanding job leading our baseball operations," said Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. "By extending Mo’s contract with the club, we look forward to continuing our approach which emphasizes excellence at the Major League level, supported by a strong player procurement and player development program."

During his tenure as General Manager, the Cardinals have advanced to the postseason four times, winning a World Championship in 2011, and the National League Championship last year. The Cardinals have twice been recognized by Baseball America as the Organization of the Year (2011 & 2013). The prestigious honor recognized the Cardinals for their success in scouting and player development

Mozeliak was named Executive of the Year in 2011 by MLB.com and in recent years he has been successful in locking up core players Matt Holliday, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, Allen Craig, and Matt Carpenter with long-term agreements with the Cardinals.

"I am fortunate to work with one of the true leaders in our game today," said Mozeliak. "Bill DeWitt is a visionary leader who has overseen one of the most successful periods in our storied history. I look forward to continuing my relationship with this great franchise as we try to bring another championship to our fans and city."
