The owner of two parking lots south of Hammons Field says it plans to offer a family-friendly tailgate experience before Springfield Cardinals home games this season.

It’ll cost $20 to park in the two lots south of Hammons Field.

Disabled parking will cost $10.

But 946 East Trafficway LLC says it will offer free food and drinks for two hours before the game.

The tailgate will be in the parking lot of the Q Hotel and Suites.

The Springfield Cardinals warned fans that parking prices would be going up around the stadium.
