A few years ago I had the privilege of visiting one of my good friends in her hometown of St. Louis in May of 2006. Of course we HAD to go to a Cardinals game. Her family, huge Cardinal fans… HUGE. Little did I know the stadium had opened just a month before I arrived.
Busch Stadium is down right beautiful. If you drive by the stadium on first base line, you can literally see the game going on. Nice traffic hazard, huh? haha.
Here are some pictures, I’ll let you judge for yourself but I highly recommend this one, even if you are not a Cardinals fan.
When they built this stadium (completed in 2006) they made sure in integrate some of the old stadium into the new stadium.
In 2006, every game sold out, making the total year attendance the second-highest in the team history. It was soon moved to fourth-highest as 2007 and 2008 sold out as well. They’ve got some loyal fans.
