CARDINALS ANNOUNCE DETAILS FOR 2013 CHRISTIAN DAY AT THE BALLPARK
Star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty to join Cardinal players in post-game program
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (May 6, 2013) – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced details for the 23rd Annual
Christian Day at the Ballpark on Sunday, July 7th, which will feature a post-game program with keynote
speaker Willie Robertson, CEO of Duck Commander and star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty.
Christian Day at the Ballpark is a day of faith, fellowship, and baseball, which begins when the Cardinals
take on the Miami Marlins at 1:15 p.m. Following the game, all fans are encouraged to stay for a special postgame
program featuring Robertson and Cardinal players sharing their testimonies in faith. A popular event
every season, past Christian Day events have included featured speakers such as 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 excited to have national celebrity Willie Robertson joining us at Busch Stadium,” said Joe Strohm, Vice
President of Ticket Sales.
Robertson, a television entrepreneur, hunter, baseball fan and family-man, will throw out the
ceremonial first pitch prior to the game, in addition to serving as the postgame event’s featured speaker.
Duck Dynasty, which chronicles the Robertson family’s lifestyle and Duck Commander business
operation, recently completed its third season on A&E. It is annually one of the highest-rated shows on cable
television, with season three averaging approximately 8.4 million viewers per episode.
