Join Us for Donate Life Day with the St. Louis Cardinals

Published February 15, 2024 in Press Release

We are excited to once again host Donate Life Day in partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals, and former Cardinal and 2006 World Series MVP David Eckstein. The April 21 game will honor donor heroes, celebrate transplant recipients, and encourage people to become “Fans for Life” by registering to be a donor. 

With the purchase of a special Theme Ticket for the Donate Life Day game on Sunday, April 21, fans will receive a free Cardinals cap supporting organ and tissue donation. Reserve your ticket today.


The 2024 Donate Life Day game promo hat. Light blue with dark blue brim. Features a green cardinal holding a baseball bat.


A portion of each ticket will be donated back to Mid-America Transplant’s Family House. Proceeds from last year’s Donate Life game totaled $4,220, enough to cover 281 nights at Family House for patients and their families as they undergo transplant care. 

On game day, you can get involved by: 

  • Participating in the Honor Walk around the field in memory of a donor hero in your life (fill out this form if you’d like to join the Honor Walk).
  • Visiting the Mid-America Transplant booth to pick up a special Fans for Life baseball card featuring St. Louis Cardinals 2006 World Series MVP David Eckstein. 
  • Registering or showing your donor registration to get an enamel St. Louis Cardinals Fans for Life pin. 
  • Making it a “double play” by registering at the booth with a buddy to receive an exclusively designed Fans for Life t-shirt, which includes the St. Louis Cardinals logo.


Mid-America Transplant and the Cardinals will continue to promote organ and tissue donation throughout the 2024 season.

Stop by the Mid-America Transplant booth at Busch Stadium during several other home games (including three games* where donor families or recipients will throw out the first pitch): 

  • Saturday, May 18 vs. Reds
