History

In 1995, St. Louis Cardinals team ownership began to lobby for a new ballpark in downtown St. Louis, but the team was unable to acquire funding for the project for several years. In June 2001, the State of Missouri signed a contract with the team, proposing a ballpark in downtown St. Louis, but a subsequent funding bill was struck down in May 2002, leaving the saga open.[5][6] Team owners sought a location near Madison, Illinois, adjacent to Gateway International Raceway, until the city of St. Louis drafted a financing plan for the team to construct the new stadium in downtown St. Louis.[7] The Stadium was financed through private bonds, bank loans, a long-term loan from St. Louis County, and money from the team owners. The development, including the Ballpark Village will cost approximately $646 million with the stadium alone costing $346 million.[8] Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday. ...

Features and design

Whereas the old stadium was a fully enclosed "cookie-cutter" facility similar to Riverfront, Veterans and Three Rivers stadiums, the new stadium is much more open-air, allowing an unobstructed view of its surroundings. It offers a panoramic view of the downtown St. Louis skyline, as well as the city's distinctive Gateway Arch. The Arch and several other significant St. Louis landmarks are reflected in the park's architecture. RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., a typical cookie cutter stadium. ...

The Gate 3 entrance on the west side of the stadium is most iconic, with a large "bridge" resembling the Eads Bridge arching over the entrance. Outside this entrance also stands a bronze statue of Cardinals legend Stan "The Man" Musial. Other Cardinals statues that previously surrounded Busch Memorial Stadium are now displayed at the corner of Clark and Eighth streets, outside the Cardinals' team store. The exterior contains historical plaques of Cardinals logos, the STL insignia and a Busch Stadium logo behind home plate. Hand-carved originals were cast into colored concrete for a total of 94 castings that adorn the brick facade. Around the exterior of the stadium, embedded into the sidewalks are fan-purchased bricks surrounding marble plaques commemorating the Top 100 Cardinal Moments. The Eads Bridge under construction Eads Bridge is a combined road and railway bridge over the Mississippi River at St. ... Stan Musials number 6 was retired by the St. ...


The interior incorporates many familiar elements from the previous Busch Stadium into the new, intimate "retro-era" design. The traditional green fences and Cardinal red seats are a theme continued from the previous ballpark. The center field batter's eye is a grassy knoll, flanked symmetrically by bleacher seats and the bullpens. Although a new electronic scoreboard is now in use in right center-field, the old scoreboard is still displayed in the main concourse as a monument to the old stadium, acting as a buffer to the nearby I-64/US-40. Furthermore, the neon flying redbird display is faithfully recreated on the new LED ribbon boards during Cardinals home runs. A tornado siren also sounds and fireworks are launched from the right field scoreboard after Cardinal home runs and wins. Interstate 64 is an interstate highway in the eastern United States. ...


The new stadium has nearly the same field dimensions as the old stadium, although with less foul territory. Observations indicate it plays fairly to both hitters and pitchers, as well as lefthanders and righthanders[citation needed].


After St. Louis Post-Dispatch sportswriter Rick Hummel was honored with the J. G. Taylor Spink Award and induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 2007, the Cardinals renamed the stadium's press box the "Bob Broeg-Rick Hummel Press Box", honoring the two local writers enshrined in Cooperstown.

Recent Additions

In 2008, the St. Louis Cardinals introduced the Champions Club [3] inside Busch Stadium. The Club used to be a number of corporate suites along the third baseline. It seats 382 fans in the remodeled suite section. The Champions Club also hosts a pilot program called the SkyBOX. St. Louis-based Vivid Sky introduced the SkyBOX into the Champions Club in April of 2008. The SkyBOX gives Champions Club patrons the ability to view instant replays and statistical information via a wireless device (iPhone or iPod Touch).


2006 weather incident

On July 19, 2006, a severe thunderstorm associated with a passing derecho whipped up very high winds throughout St. Louis. At the new Busch Stadium, the storm knocked over portable concession stands, damaging the infield rain tarp as it was deployed, and dislodged several of the plastic sheets that were designed to protect the open-air press box. One of those sheets, at least 10 feet by 5 feet (3 m by 1.5 m) in dimension, fell into the stands. At least thirty spectators were injured, of whom five were taken to the hospital (one of those had a seizure apparently unrelated to the storm). The game, which saw the Cardinals defeat the Atlanta Braves 8-3, was delayed by 2 hours and 21 minutes, while the crews cleaned up. [10] The stadium now has designated shelter areas for such disasters which are located throughout the ballpark in strategically placed ramps and stairwells.
