ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A group of dedicated St. Louis Cardinals fans spent their weekend in tents to be sure they snag tickets to the Cardinals home opener.

Tyler, from Roxana, came downtown Saturday night. He was one of dozens of people who set up tents along 8th Street and Spruce.

Strong wind and rain came through Sunday night. Tyler said he went to a nearby restaurant for cover.

Tyler is one of many people who will receive First Pitch vouchers. The St. Louis Cardinals will give away 275 pairs of tickets for $11.20. The fans get a voucher to return before game time to get their tickets. The tickets could be for any seat in the stadium.
