  • Cards' raffle off chance to blow-up Busch

    Cards raffle the right to blow up Busch

    Cardinals Care will announce today a joint venture with United Way to raffle off the right to push the button that brings down Busch Stadium.

    Starting in the next Cardinals home stand, raffle tickets will be available for $10 each.

    From the purchasers of those tickets, a group of 250 will be selected for a pre-implosion gathering. One of those 250 will be plucked for the plunge: The right to ignite Busch.

    Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Cardinals Care and the United Way.

    The Cardinals' tentative plan calls for Busch to be imploded 20 days after the final game is played there.
