Springfield Cardinal fans hoping to watch a game at Hammons Field better be ready to pay more for parking.
The Cardinals released a statement on Tuesday afternoon saying they are aware of upcoming changes to parking prices at two nearby parking areas to their home ballpark.
"In late March, the Springfield Cardinals leadership team was disappointed to learn of price increases to begin this season and has begun discussions with the parking lot and garage owner," the statement said. "The team is also exploring alternative options for fans."
