Fans of the St. Louis Cardinals will get the chance, once again, to interact with current and former players when the “Cardinals Caravan” makes its annual stop at Missouri Southern.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 18, inside Robert Ellis Young Gymnasium.

Scheduled to appear are current players Jordan Hicks (P), Giovanny Gallegos (P), Junior Fernandez (P) and Lane Thomas (OF). Former players will include Tom Pagnozzi and Al Hrabosky, while former St. Louis pitcher Ricky Horton will serve as emcee.

The event starts at noon, and will feature presentations and a Q&A session with players, followed by autographs and giveaways. Autograph tickets will be available at the door on a first-come-first-serve basis for kids ages 15 and younger. The United Way of Southwest Missouri & Southeast Kansas will accept donations for tickets for a chance to win giveaway items.

Once again, KGCS-TV is helping to bring this free event to campus. It is sponsored locally by the Missouri Farm Bureau and Zimmer Radio. More details can be found by following the link:
