The Jacksonville Rotary Club is banking on one of baseball’s best rivalries to raise funds for literacy.

A limited number of tickets are available for a pair of Rotary Days at Busch Stadium between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs.

Jacksonville Rotary Club President Todd Evans stated in a press release that this is the 13th Rotary Day at Busch Stadium. More than $335,000 has been raised around the country for literacy grants through this program.

Evans says a 2015 grant allowed Rotary to provide one or more books for every student at South Elementary School.

Tickets for the May 23 and 24th games are $38. To secure tickets contact Erich Marks at 836-8087.
