"We did this last year," said Andrew Wool of Three Kings. "The goal was to have fun. We had trivia, we used the red velvet ropes from the Tivoli Theatre to rope off the star and we played old recordings of famous Jack Buck radio calls."

Last year's event was during a Sunday afternoon St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. Tonight's event will be held while the Cardinals host the Houston Astros at Busch Stadium.

Wool said winners can walk away with Cardinals tickets and gift certificates to Three Kings.

According to Buck's biography on the Walk of Fame site, he received the Ford C. Frick Award Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987 and was inducted to the St. Louis Walk of Fame in 1991.
