ST. LOUIS (97.1 FM TALK) - If you've ever thought you could really hit a home run at Busch Stadium, now you've got a chance to prove it.

The St. Louis Cardinals announced that they're selling a new “Fans at Bat” batting practice experience at Busch Stadium. It's the first time ever that they'll allow fans to buy a chance to step in the batter's box and try to swing like a pro.

Each package includes a 45-minute batting practice session and instruction with two Cardinals Alumni players, including 1987 National League champion Scott Terry, 1985 & 1987 World Series starter Danny Cox, 2011 World Series champion Kyle McClellan, and two-time All-Star third baseman Scott Cooper. Guests will also receive keepsake autographs from their Cardinals Alumni instructors and have exclusive access to the Cardinals Hall of Fame & Museum.

Guests can sign up for the Fans at Bat experience at Busch Stadium on one of three dates: Sunday, March 21; Friday, March 26; or Saturday, March 27. The cost of each package is $1,250.

A number of safety precautions will be in place for guests to maintain social distancing and avoid physical contact with Cardinals staff and alumni. Participants will be required to wear masks at all times except while batting.
