Busch Stadium will be in full flashback mode this weekend, when the 1982 St. Louis Cardinals World Series team is honored.
The 20-year anniversary of the club's win over Milwaukee will be highlighted by a parade and ceremony on the field at 6 p.m. Saturday, just before the Cards-Brewers 6:15 p.m. start.
"The 1982 team was one of the greatest in Cardinals history," said Bill DeWitt III, president of the Cardinals. "We are thrilled to have so many members of that legendary team reunite as part of this weekend celebration."
Those expected to attend: manager Whitey Herzog, players Ozzie Smith, Bruce Sutter, Keith Hernandez, Ken Oberkfell, Tito Landrum, Mike Ramsey, Glenn Brummer, Dane Iorg, Dave LaPoint, Jim Kaat, John Stuper, Jeff Lahti, Steve Mura, John Martin, Doug Bair, Jeff Keener, Gene Roof, coach Red Schoendienst, General Manager Joe McDonald and trainer Gene Gieselmann.
For fans not at the game, the ceremony will be telecast live on Fox Sports Midwest and broadcast on KMOX-AM Radio.
In the game that follows, the current Cardinals and Brewers will wear throwback 1982 uniforms, with the Redbirds in their home stretch whites and the Brewers in powder-blue road jerseys.
The first 25,000 fans 16 and older on Saturday will receive a 1982 World Series Game 7 replica ticket.
On Friday, the first 25,000 fans will receive a bobblehead of Sutter, who struck out Gorman Thomas for the last out of the '82 Series.
Game time change: A reminder that the Sunday start between the Brewers and Cardinals has been moved to 7:05 p.m. from 1:15 p.m.
The game will be ESPN's Sunday night game of the week.
