EAST PEORIA, Ill. -- Former and current St. Louis Cardinals will be coming to town later this month for the Cardinals Caravan.

The Embassy Suites Hotel in East Peoria plays host to the winter warm-up Sunday, January 20. Current players Marc Rzepczynski, Shane Robinson, Adron Chambers and Barrett Browning will be joined by Cardinal Alumni Jason Simontacchi and Kerry Robinson. Rick Horton will emcee.

The Cardinals are implementing a new autograph ticket system this year. The first kids through the door on the day of the event will receive a free autograph ticket, guaranteeing an autograph from each current and former player. Autographs will only be available for kids 15 and under.

A schedule of the five Caravans, their destinations and participating players is available on the team website,
