The trip to Busch Stadium is set for Sunday, Sept. 25.  The bus leaves the Student Center at about 10 a.m. and the baseball game time is 1 p.m.  Tickets are $50 per person and that includes a seat at the ballpark and round-trip motor coach transportation. 

Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to join in the fun.  Space is limited though with tickets selling on a first come basis, so organizers recommend buying early.  Purchase tickets at the business office window on the second floor of the Student Center.
