(KSDK Sports) -- Fresh off another World Series appearance and some significant trades in recent days, the Cardinals today announced that tickets to their next big event, the 18th annual Winter Warm-Up (#WWU) will be available starting Friday, November 29th at 9 a.m. CT.

The event times are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday.

Fans can purchase admission passes for the three-day Winter Warm-Up online at cardinals.com/winterwarmup, in the official Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium and at Cardinals Clubhouse stores located around St. Louis.

The prices for admission passes, which are valid for all three days of the Warm-Up, will remain the same as the last few years – $40 for fans age 16 and over, $10 for children age 5 to 15. Kids under 5 are admitted free of charge. Members of the military, police and fire departments with an active ID can receive one free adult pass which must be obtained in person at the Official Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium or at the event.

Past popular attractions will return for the 2014 event that provides Cardinal Nation with countless unique opportunities while raising money for Cardinals Care, the team's charitable fund, in their mission to care for kids in the Cardinals community. Fans can meet their favorite players at autograph sessions, play interactive games, share memories with Hall-of-Famers, take photos with Fredbird, find collectable memorabilia, bid on one-of-a-kind items at live and silent auctions, experience live presentations, and ask tough questions of players, owners, scouts, broadcasters and officials at Q&A sessions.

"We hope fans join us as we mark the return of baseball and celebrate our National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals," said Michael Hall, Executive Director of Cardinals Care and Vice President of Community Relations. "The Warm-Up is a fun way to interact with our great players and, most importantly, team up with them to help kids in our community."

Many players' autographs are free with the admission pass, while others require an autograph ticket available through a specific additional donation. All autograph tickets will be sold online beginning Monday, January 6th through Wednesday, January 15th. Please check the Cardinals website (cardinals.com/winterwarmup) in mid-December for details, including player autograph dates, times and, if required, additional donation amounts.Any remaining autograph tickets not sold online will be available at the Winter Warm-Up.
