CoSIDA St. Louis Convention attendees who attend the Farewell Party/Reception at Busch Stadium on Tuesday, June 26, will have an opportunity to take a private behind-the-scenes tour of the home of Major League Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals.
Tickets are only $5 apiece and will be available during Convention registration on Saturday, June 23, from 10 am-3 pm Central and on Sunday, June 24, from 8-11 am. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to the first 200 who purchase them. No tickets will be sold the day of the event.
The last night of the 2012 CoSIDA Convention will begin with a special on-field presentation by legendary Cardinals shortstop and Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith at 6:15 pm, followed by the annual Farewell Party/Reception from 6:45-8 pm in the Redbird Club that offers fantastic views of the stadium and the St. Louis skyline.
Convention attendees' family and friends not registered for the Convention also may attend the Ozzie Smith presentation and Farewell Party/Reception by purchasing tickets for $30 apiece during the registration times listed above.
