The St. Louis Cardinals announced their lineup of current players, alumni and broadcasters who will make a stop Friday, Jan. 18, in Jefferson City for the annual Cardinals Caravan.

Pitchers Dakota Hudson, Mike Mayers and Chasen Shreve, as well as catcher Andrew Knizner, are the players that will visit Jefferson City, the Cardinals announced Tuesday.

Former Cardinals Jim Edmonds, Joe Magrane and Danny Cox will also be in attendance for the caravan. Broadcaster John Rooney will serve as the emcee.

The Jefferson City event will start at 6 p.m. at the Missouri Farm Bureau Center.

The first 400 kids ages 15 and under will receive a free autograph ticket, which guarantees one autograph from each current and former player.

The caravan will also visit Sedalia and Columbia on Saturday, Jan. 19. While Edmonds won't be in attendance that day, Cardinals outfielder Harrison Bader will join the group of active players.

At noon, the caravan will be at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Building in Sedalia. At 5 p.m., it will be at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia.

The Cardinals' stop in Mid-Missouri is one of six caravans stopping in 20 cities next weekend. Other stops will take place in Illinois, Arkansas, Tennessee, Indiana and Kentucky, as well as at Rolla, Springfield, Joplin and Cape Girardeau.
