Wacha rehab, Book Drive with $1 tickets and $1 hot dogs on Tuesday

The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that RHP Michael Wacha is expected to make a rehab start in Springfield on Tuesday as the Cardinals take on the Arkansas Travelers at 6:30pm (Gates Open 5:30pm) to begin the final homestand of the 2018 Regular Season.

The Cardinals are partnering with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield on Tuesday, August 28 to host our annual Book Drive, benefiting the Springfield-Greene County Library District.

Fans who donate (preferably new hardcover and paperback books for ages Birth-17) can purchase a $1 ticket to Tuesday's game (Gates open 5:30pm).

$1 Book Drive tickets must be purchased at Hammons Field.

Tuesday is also a Great Southern Bank $1 Dog Day, with hot dogs available all game for just a buck, meaning fans can see the 2013 NLCS MVP for $1 and enjoy unlimited $1 hot dogs.
