An “emo night” at a Major League Baseball game? You read that right. On Aug. 4, the St. Louis Cardinals will celebrate their own Emo Night as one of the theme games at Busch Stadium as part of the 2023 MLB season.
And a special merch item is promised for those attending. It’s a facsimile of a My Chemical Romance T-shirt, but instead, the shirt says My Cardinal Romance, complete with a very emo-looking Cardinal mascot. The shirt comes alongside the purchase of a Theme Ticket for Cardinals Emo Night.
See the T-shirt near the bottom of this post.
A description on the Cards’ website cheekily reads, “When I was a young boy, my father took me into the city to see a baseball game. This is no dirty little secret — Emo Night at Busch Stadium is Friday, August 4th when the Cards take on the Rockies.”
Highlighting the special My Cardinal Romance T-shirt, the MLB invitation adds, “With the purchase of a special Theme Ticket, fans will take home an emo-inspired Cardinals t-shirt. Don’t miss a pre-game concert by Taking Back Emo in the Budweiser Terrace! Sugar, the Cards won’t go down swingin’.”
Will you attend Emo Night at Busch Stadium? The Cardinals Emo Night takes after the popular Emo Nite events that occur in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere. The Cardinals take on the Colorado Rockies on Aug. 4.
