ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – The St. Louis Cardinals literally want you to bleed red. They’re asking fans to step up to the plate and donate blood.

The Cardinals are teaming up with the American Red Cross to hold blood drives Monday and Tuesday.

Everyone who attempts to donate will receive a specially designed St. Louis Cardinals t-shirt.

To donate blood, you’ll need two forms of identification, be at least 17 years of age and in good health, and weigh more than 110 pounds. Simply call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code ‘CARDS’ to make an appointment or get more information.
