Now that a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) has been reached between Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), baseball fans young and old can breathe a sigh of relief.

This news was very welcoming especially in Owensville for Tyler Ahring’s Dutchmen baseball team along with Erin Sassmann’s Owensville Elementary School (OES) Choir kids.

That is because both groups will be paying a visit to Busch Stadium at some point during the upcoming 2022 season of St. Louis Cardinals baseball.

First to get their taste of visiting a MLB ballpark will be Ahring’s Dutchmen.

Scheduled for Saturday, April 16, Ahring’s Owensville squad will face Roxana’s Shells at Busch Stadium in the first action for the orange and black in nearly three decades.

After the Dutchmen get their turn on the field at Busch Stadium, numerous third, fourth and fifth-grade Owensville Elementary School (OES) students under the direction of Erin Sassmann will get to show off their vocal chords.

Scheduled for Wednesday, June 29 when the Cardinals will face the Miami Marlins with a 6:45 p.m., first pitch.

During the seventh-inning stretch, the OES Choir will sing God Bless America prior to the singing of Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Last summer, Sassmann’s OES choir got to sing the National Anthem prior to a St. Louis Cardinal baseball game.

This will be the second out-of-town performance this year for Sassmann’s singers.

Two weeks ago, they performed at the Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) Central District Concert held at St. James Elementary School.
