CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI., Feb. 9, 2015 – Major League Baseball players will begin reporting to spring training later this month with the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues getting underway in March, a sure sign that Southeast Day at Busch 2015 is just around the corner.

In addition, the Southeast Alumni Association will host a pre-game fan gathering at Ballpark Village from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Budweiser Brew House.
“This is a ‘family friendly’ gathering with an appetizer buffet, drink specials, appearances by Rowdy the Redhawk and face painting,” said Jay Wolz, director of Alumni Relations at Southeast.

“Last year, we had 1,325 participate in Southeast Day at Busch,” Wolz said. “It’s one of our larger alumni activities in the St. Louis area. Our Southeast alumni in St. Louis as well as our alumni from throughout the region look forward to Southeast Day at Busch. It’s always a lot of fun, regardless of the score. I invite all of our alumni and friends to join us.”
