    Busch Stadium is located in downtown St. Louis, Missouri and is the home stadium of the St. Louis Cardinals. The St. Louis Cardinals have had three stadiums in their tenure all of which have shared the same name of Busch Stadium. The current stadium is also referred to as “New Busch Stadium” or “Busch Stadium III”. The first stadium of the Cardinals was originally named Sportsman Park and was renamed to Busch Stadium in 1953 after Gussie Busch, the team owner at the time. The first stadium closed in 1966. The Cardinals then moved into their second stadium that had the name Busch Memorial Stadium. The current stadium is named after the company Anheuser-Busch instead of the original team owner. Anheuser-Busch in which signed the naming rights deal in 2006 for 20 years keeping the stadium ironically name as Busch Stadium. The Cardinals ownership in 1995 started lobbying for a new stadium. In 2001 funding was secured and a contract was signed to build the new stadium. Construction began in 2004 and in 2006 the current Busch Stadium opened. The stadium has the seating capacity of 43,975 and with standing room 46,861. The playing surface is Kentucky Bluegrass a type of natural grass. Fans from nearly anywhere in the stadium have great views of the Gateway Arch and of downtown St. Louis.

    • This is one of my favorite ball park's in all of baseball. The awesome thing about Busch Stadium is that the Ball Park Village is right across the street. You can drink and eat over there and get rowdy. Busch Stadium also has Big Mac Land, which is a historic part of the stadium in left field, dedicated to Mark McGwire. Basically every time he hit a home run and it landed in that area, everyone would get free Big Macs. Busch stadium is really beautiful and access is easy from major thoroughfares.

    • I love Busch Stadium and the Cardinals but there's one thing they can improve on. First with the positives. The food options are tremendous, far superior on the first deck but that's pretty typical for most ball parks. The seats are big enough and provide plenty of leg room, unless you're taller than 6'5". Watching my 6'7" future brother-in-law try to sit anywhere but the aisle is comical. Restrooms are in abundance, the promos are usually funny, Fredbird makes his rounds...all wonderful things. The cheers of the crowd can give me goosebumps. Highlights from a World Series winner can make me cry. I absolutely love this stadium! My one concern is the lack of gluten free food options at the ballpark. There are some salads and cold sandwiches on the first deck, the turkey legs, pulled pork with no bun or sauce, popcorn, and peanuts. That's pretty much it. I've been to a lot of ballparks and most of them including Yankee Stadium, Fenway, and Wrigley all have gluten free hot dogs and brats. It's really not hard to have one kiosk dedicated to gluten free. Overall, Busch Stadium is a great experience! Karla St. Joseph, MO
