Planning to take a trip to see the Cardinals this year? Here’s a look at the schedule and some other games you can catch.
Week 1 – Home vs New Orleans
You have some options. On Saturday, catch the D-Backs vs Dodgers or a tune-up with Cal Poly vs AZ State. For Padres fans, stick around until Monday to watch them at Chase Field.
Week 2 – at Chicago
On Saturday, catch the Baseball Cardinals vs the Cubs or take the 2 hour drive to see Georgia Tech vs Notre Dame in South Bend.
Week 3 – Home vs San Francisco
A California double-header with USC taking on the Sun Devils on Saturday.
Week 4 – Home vs St. Louis
The Astros visit the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Week 5 – @ Detroit
Northwestern takes on Harbaugh and Michigan on Saturday.
Week 6 – @ Pittsburgh
It’s a stretch, but it will be worth the 3 hour drive to see Penn State upset the Buckeyes in Columbus Saturday night. Sure it will be a long drive in the morning, but who cares? Penn State won!
Week 7 – Home vs Baltimore
Nothing close by, but hey, it’s a Monday night game. That alone is enough reason to go!
Week 8 – @ Cleveland
Thankfully, there’s nothing else happening in the area. This saves you from making a trip to Cleveland.
Week 10 – @ Seattle
After a bye week, the Cards are featured on a Sunday night. There’s no other action in town, but it’s still worth the trip.
Week 11 – Home vs Cincinnati
The Territorial Cup is in town with UofA taking on ASU on Saturday.
Week 12 – @ San Francisco
A great double-header weekend for ASU fans with the Devils visiting Cal. If that’s doesn’t work, how about Notre Dame vs Stanford?
Week 13 – @ St. Louis
It’s over a 3 hour drive, but you can catch the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday, then head to St. Louis for the Cards game.
I’ll wait until the NBA, NHL and Bowl schedules are announced to post the late season trips.
What’s your favorite?
