The Sixth Annual SLABA Night at the Ballpark was Wednesday, May 17, 2017 when the Cardinals hosted the Boston Red Sox. Unfortunately, the Cards gave up a 4-0 lead to lose to the BoSox 5-4 in 13 innings.
Vice-President Chad Fix threw out the first pitch commemorating SLABA's 30th season. A little later in the pregame ceremonies, the 1967 World Champion Cardinals were paraded around the warning track and honored. Bob Gibson threw out the final first pitch to Tim McCarver. It was the 50th anniversary of the Cardinals World Series victory over the Red Sox.
