ST. LOUIS, Mo., January 3, 2024 – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced the schedule for the 2024 Cardinals Caravan, presented by Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance.

The Cardinals Caravan will traverse 20 different cities across Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Indiana. A combination of more than 40 current players, minor league prospects, alumni and team broadcasters will embark on one of six different caravans through Cardinal Nation from January 12-15.

The Caravan is a great way for fans outside of St. Louis to get up close and personal with Cards players.  Eighteen players with Major League experience are scheduled to attend including Lars Nootbaar, Brendan Donovan, Jordan Walker, Masyn Winn, Ivan Herrera, Alec Burleson, Richie Palacios, Luken Baker, Matthew Liberatore, Andre Pallante, Zack Thompson, John King, James Naile, Packy Naughton, Drew Rom, Nick Robertson, Jose Fermin, and Michael Siani

As in previous years, the club will implement an autograph ticket system at each stop. The first 400 kids, ages 15 and under, through the door on the day of the event will receive a free autograph ticket which guarantees one autograph from each current and former player. Due to high demand, autographs will only be available for fans 15 and under.

About Cardinals Care
Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way to team up with players and the organization to help children in our community—both on and off the baseball field. Established in 1997, Cards Care has invested over $31 million to support St. Louis area children, built or renovated 24 youth ball fields in local under-resourced neighborhoods, and distributed over $17 million in grants to nonprofit organizations.

Since 2004, Cards Care has orchestrated the innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free co-ed baseball/softball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play. In addition to providing all the uniforms and equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 2,500 kids who participate in the program each year.

In 2023, Cards Care launched the Cardinals Nike Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program in cooperation with Major League Baseball to expand baseball and softball opportunities for youth and provide a bridge to more competitive play for those graduating from the Redbird Rookies program.
