Are you ready to welcome summertime and hot days spent at the ballfield? This month, the sound of a baseball bat and the hot dog guy is as good an indicator as any that warm weather is here. For those in southwest Missouri, getting a baseball fix means heading to Hammons Field. There’s plenty to be excited about this upcoming season, so we decided to break it down.

A New Face at the Top

The Springfield Cardinals have a new skipper this season: Joe Kruzel, who has been with the Cardinals organization for seven years. He replaces Johnny Rodriguez. Kruzel was most recently with Short-A State College Spikes in the New York-Penn League.

Once A Month Promotions

According to General Manager Dan Reiter, the Cardinals will run special promotions once a month every month. That includes allowing fans on the field to watch fireworks, a pregame happy hour on the field and a family four-pack ticket promotion. Other promotions this season include at least five bobblehead nights and a Cardinals Build-A-Bear.

New Faces

There’s always something exciting about seeing a player before he makes it big, and when you’re in St. Louis for a Cardinals game a few years from now, you’ll be able to say you knew them when.
