Cards Spring Training Schedule Out

A semi-official version of the Cardinals 2006 Spring Training schedule.

A semi-official version of the St. Louis Cardinals 2006 Spring Training schedule has been made available via Jupiter, Florida's Roger Dean Stadium, which the Cardinals share with the Florida Marlins.

 

30 games are scheduled in 32 days, starting with a February 28 exhibition against Florida Atlantic University. The only other scheduled day off for the squad is March 21. At this juncture, no split-squad games have been scheduled, but they are often added later.

 

One of the highlights of the spring will be a visit by the New York Yankees on St. Patrick's Day, Friday, March 17. As is often the case, nearby teams like the New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles and Atlanta Braves make up a majority of the schedule, along with the Marlins.

 

A new wrinkle this spring is the World Baseball Classic, which will be running during spring training in Arizona, Puerto Rico, California and other locales. This first-time event will draw away many of the game's top stars to play for their home countries in the tourney, scheduled March 3-20. These players will be excused from their major league squads to participate.

 

Keep these dates in mind if seeing a particular player is a make-or-break part of your trip planning. However, World Baseball Classic rosters will not be known until perhaps mid-January.

 

While Roger Dean season ticket packages appear to be available now, single-game tickets are not expected to go on sale until just after the New Year. But, don't wait to start making your travel plans!
