After missing the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Cardinals are ready to contend again in the NL Central, and getting single game tickets at Busch Stadium has never been easier! See St. Louis open the season against the defending World Series champion and archrival Chicago Cubs, who will also make visits in May and September.
The Cardinals are one of the winningest franchises in major league history, and this year should be no different as they challenge for a division title and a playoff spot. Tickets will be at a premium this year as NL powers Los Angeles and Washington visit along with AL East teams Boston and Tampa Bay, so check out the full season schedule below and plan a trip to Busch Stadium today!
The Cardinals narrowly missed the postseason in 2016 and will be the primary challengers to the Cubs in the NL Central. Jedd Gyorko leads a balanced lineup, and Stephen Piscotty is on the verge of stardom after hitting 22 homers in his first full season. The acquisition of center fielder Dexter Fowler from the rival Cubs provides improved defense in the outfield, and catcher Yadier Molina is still one of the best at his position.
The Cardinals boast a solid combo in starters Carlos Martinez and Adam Wainwright and are hoping Michael Wacha can re-discover his 17-win form from 2015. The trio should be boosted by the return of Lance Lynn, who missed last season with an elbow injury.
