Cardinals & HWCDSB Partner for School Day Game on May 10

Hamilton, Ontario - The Hamilton Cardinals, in partnership with the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board, is excited to announce a special IBL School Day Exhibition Game set to take place on Friday May 10th, 2024. This unique educational and sporting event will feature a game between the Hamilton Cardinals and the Brantford Red Sox at the historic Bernie Arbour Memorial Stadium, located at 1100 Mohawk Road E on Hamilton Mountain.

The game is scheduled to commence at 11:00 am and will consist of 7 innings. This event aims to introduce students to Canada’s premier baseball league, the Intercounty Baseball League, which has been a staple of Canadian sports for over a century. Many students may have yet to experience the excitement of a live baseball game, and this event promises to change that with an engaging and interactive game day experience.

The School Day Game is designed to be more than just a baseball match; it's an interactive learning experience. Our in-game host Emily Thompson will keep the students entertained between innings with trivia questions, sing-a-longs, and participation in other Cardinal game-day traditions. 

To enhance the experience, each student will receive a complimentary snack, two tickets to a future Hamilton Cardinals home game, baseball cards, and informational packets about the Cardinals. The Cardinals encourage the kids to bring a lunch and their baseball glove for foul balls!

Schools will receive a registration link internally distributed. The game will not be open to the public but will be live streamed on
