Jose Martinez and Cardinals to help Venezula

Milwaukee Brewers v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

The St. Louis Cardinals, in collaboration with outfielder José Martínez, announced the team will sell specially-priced $10 tickets for the upcoming series with the Milwaukee Brewers on September 24-26 to help those impacted by the socioeconomic and political crisis in José’s and bullpen catcher Kleininger Teran’s home country of Venezuela. Fans can purchase the specially-priced tickets now at cardinals.com/helpjose.
For every specially-priced $10 ticket purchased, 75% will be donated to José’s relief efforts to assist those in need in Venezuela. The team is partnering with a four-star Charity Navigator organization who has served more than 100 million people in more than 110 countries throughout the world to distribute aid items on the ground in Venezuela.
“As I think about returning to Venezuela when the seasons ends, I wanted to do something for the people of my country,” Martínez stated. “They are in need of basic things, the most important of which is food. This generous ticket offer by the Cardinals during the team’s postseason push will be a tremendous help to the cause.”
Martínez has been an integral part of the Cardinals over the last two seasons, leading the team with a .306 batting average while ranking third in games played (249) and fourth in RBI (126).
