ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- Now that the Cardinals have clinched a post season birth for the fifth straight season, there are dates and activities for Cardinal Nation to remember. There is also new merchandise to buy! Workers at the Cardinals team store at Busch Stadium have been busy this morning putting out t-shirts and hats that are sure to be popular with cards fans.

The t-shirts and hats are the ones that the team wore during the locker room celebration last night. The saying on the t-shirt 'The Central Is Ours.'

The shirts and hats got to the store last night and workers put them out first thing this morning before the store opened at 7am. With the win last night, the Cards have home field advantage until the World Series. That means they will host game one of the National League Divisional Series a week from tomorrow on Friday, October 9th.

The game time is yet to be determined.

The Redbirds will play the winner of the Wild Card game between the Pirates and the Cubs. That game will be played next Wednesday. Tickets for that Divisional Series have already been on sale, many are sold.

Tickets for a potential National League Championship Series for the Cardinals will go on sale starting today at noon.

The Cardinals could host up to four NLCS games between October 17th and October 25th.

Workers at the team store say they will get more merchandise as the post season unfolds including the always popular hoodies that the team wears in the dugout.
