CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

Aug. 22, 2006 – Tickets are going quickly for Southeast@ Busch Stadium 2006 scheduled for Sept. 29 when the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Milwaukee Brewers.

“They are going fast, but tickets are still available,” said Doug McDermott, director of marketing and constituent relations with the Southeast Missouri State University Alumni Association.

This is the 25th anniversary of Southeast @ Busch Stadium, which is sponsored by the Southeast Alumni Association. To commemorate the anniversary, Joe Torrisi, a 1976 Southeast Missouri State University alumnus from St. Louis and the founder of the Southeast@Busch event, will throw out the first pitch. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will honor Torrisi with a proclamation on the field, and Torrisi also will be recognized at a special Southeast pre-game party.

“Joe has been a strong pivotal force for Southeast in St. Louis,” said Jane Stacy, director of alumni services and development at Southeast. “He has done so much to keep alumni relations going in St. Louis over the years. He deserves every ounce of credit for the work he has done.”

The pre-game party for Southeast alumni and friends is scheduled for 5:10 p.m. in Busch Stadium. The game begins at 7:10 p.m.

The deadline to purchase pre-game party tickets is Aug. 24. The deadline to purchase game tickets is Sept. 15.
