Springfield, MO - One day after a trio of former Springfield Cardinals - RHP Michael Wacha, RHP Carlos Martinez and RHP Trevor Rosenthal - helped the St. Louis Cardinals even the National League Division Series, we've got more exciting news. The Principal Financial Group Puzzle Cubes have arrived at Hammons Field!
The Puzzle Cubes were originally slated to be given away before the June 18 game, but were detained by U.S. Customs. Instead of the cubes, 2,500 fans that day received vouchers.
While Customs is still hanging on to the original shipment (they really like the cubes), the Cardinals reordered the Puzzle Cubes and they are available for pick-up. All fans that received a Puzzle Cube Voucher on June 18 may now bring that voucher to the Springfield Cardinals Front Office to claim their Principal Financial Group Puzzle Cube. All members of the Promo Club may also pick up their Puzzle Cube at the Front Office.
The Front Office is located at Hammons Field and is open Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 5:30pm. If you have any questions about picking up your Puzzle Cube, please call the Front Office at (417) 863-0395. The Springfield Cardinals and Principal Financial Group thank everyone for their patience!
