Fenton Man Wins $100,000 On New Baseball Ticket
A retired Fenton man is $100,000 richer after he won the top prize on the Missouri Lottery’s new "St. Louis Cardinals™" Scratchers game. Kenneth Buddemeyer, 67, purchased his winning ticket at Valley Park Motomart, 20 S. Elam Ave. in Valley Park, on April 4.
"It was pretty exciting," Buddemeyer said about scratching the ticket off and seeing that he won the $100,000 prize.
Buddemeyer said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills.
The $5 "St. Louis Cardinals™" Scratchers game, along with the $5 "Kansas City Royals™" game, officially went on sale March 28. In addition to winning instant prizes from $5 to $100,000 in the two Major League Baseball® games, players can also win prizes by entering non-winning tickets in two promotions: "Catch the Cardinals™" and "Run with the Royals™." Each promotion will feature three drawings with experiential prizes such as season tickets for two, luxury suites, road trips to games in Chicago, games with ceremonial first pitch experiences, and officially licensed MLB® merchandise packages, including jerseys, caps, jackets, wind shirts and duffle bags.
The first entry deadline for both promotions is May 17, and the first drawings will be held May 24.
