Dates and Times:
The Cardinals Winter Warm-Up is held every January over the three-day Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend. In 2013, the Winter Warm-Up is January 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., January 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and January 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event is held in Downtown St. Louis at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch. The hotel is located at 315 Chestnut Street, just a few blocks from Busch Stadium.
Prices for a three-day entry pass to the Winter Warm-Up are: $40 for adults and $10 for children ages five to 15. Kids younger than 5 get in free. Firefighters, police officers and members of the military with a valid ID can also get one free adult pass.
Entry passes can be purchased online, by phone at (314) 345-9000, or at the Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium or Cardinals Clubhouse Stores at local malls including St. Louis Outlet Mall, The Galleria, Mid Rivers Mall and St. Clair Square.
There is plenty for fans to do at the Winter Warm-Up, but the big draw for most is the chance to meet and get autographs from their favorite players. Current team members, former players and Hall-of-Famers will all be on hand to meet fans.
Some players will sign autographs for free, but for others fans must buy a ticket to attend the autograph sessions. Money raised goes to Cardinals Care, the team's charity to help local children. For more information, see the complete schedule of autograph sessions and prices.

Another option is to take Metrolink to Busch Stadium, 8th and Pine or Lacelede's Landing and make a short walk to the hotel. A one-ride Metrolink ticket is $2.25 for adults and $1.10 for children.
