Hamilton, ON - The Hamilton Cardinals are excited to announce their promotional schedule for the 2023 season, featuring a variety of promotions that will make attending Cardinal games an unforgettable experience.

The player who has the number that is selected by the wheel now becomes the SHED Beer Batter for the entire game. If the Beer Batter strikes out, beer at our concession stand is sold for half price for the rest of the inning.

  • Jägerbomb Home Runs. If the Cardinals hit a home run during a Friday home game, Jägerbombs at our concession stand are sold for half price for the rest of the inning.
