The 6th Annual Jacksonville Night at Busch Stadium Event

The 6th Annual Jacksonville Night at Busch Stadium Event is proud to announce Illinois State Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer has received the honor of throwing out the First Pitch for this year’s event, 1:15 p.m. Saturday, May 14 at Busch Stadium.

“We are thrilled that Davidsmeyer is available and excited to represent his hometown of Jacksonville for this event. Davidsmeyer and his family have lived in and served the Jacksonville community for several generations. We are overjoyed to thank Davidsmeyer for all his efforts in representing our community and to have Davidsmeyer, his wife, Kristen and their sons participate in the festivities this year.” states founder, Shelley Singleton.

Every year a dedicated, passionate and committed resident of Jacksonville has been selected to represent our community.

“I am deeply honored to have been chosen to represent Jacksonville. I have been a Cardinal fan my entire life and can’t believe I will actually be throwing out the first pitch from the mound with my two boys at my side! What a thrill! I am so grateful for this opportunity,” states Davidsmeyer.

In years past, the event has hosted Mayor Andy Ezard, avid Cardinal fan 95-year-old Helen Glisson, Illinois College President, Dr. Barbara Farley, MacMurray President, Dr. Mark Tierno and local investor and philanthropist Scotty DeWolf, as honorary guests to throw out the first pitch.
