The St. Louis Plumbing Industry Council, in conjunction with the Plumbers’ and Pipefitters’ Local No. 562, recently became a corporate sponsor of the St. Louis Cardinals. Kicking off with its annual Night at the Ball Game, the Plumbing Industry Council welcomed 225 contractors, affiliates and invited guests to Busch Stadium. The ceremonial first pitch was throne out by Mallory Mitchell, daughter of Robert C. Mitchell, Plumbing Industry Council president.

The evening featured the unveiling of the Plumbing Industry Council’s 3 foot x 40 foot rotating sign located down the third baseline, as well as a promotional video recognizing the the group’s 40th anniversary and honoring the 1967 Cardinals World Series Championship team. The two-minute promotional video airs two times prior to every Cardinals’ home game; a 30-second version of the video airs during extended delays in the game, such as rain delays and pitching changes.

In addition, the Plumbing Industry Council also installed misting stations on the Terrace Concourse Level. The misting stations, installed by DeLuca Plumbing, are located behind Sections 331 (home plate) and 351 (right field) and feature the Plumbing Industry Council’s new ad campaign: “Licensed Union Plumbers Make Your Water Work.”
