Busch Stadium, St. Louis

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. 

Pretty sweet view of the outfield.
The stadium was built to have a panoramic view of the city skyline. In Gate 3 you can find a bridge resembling the Eads Bridge over the entrance. You can also find a bronze statue of Stan “The Man” Musial. Other statues are displayed around the stadium.
Check out that backdrop!
Can’t get enough of that skyline!
It’s the little things…
Busch Stadium also hosted the All-Star Game in 2009. The AL won 4-3.

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.
