One of the most eagerly anticipated new ballparks in recent years is the third reincarnation of Busch Stadium in St. Louis. After 40 years at the second Busch Stadium, the Cardinals will play the 2006 season at a new $350 million facility right next to the spot where the previous Busch Stadium stood before it lost its fight against the wrecking ball. St. Louis Cardinals tickets are always a hot item in the baseball-crazy city, and that will surely be the case this year as the team goes for the NL Central crown in their new stadium.
While the old Busch Stadium was the site of many great baseball moments, like the Boston Red Sox’s World Series victory in 2004 and Mark McGwire’s memorable 70-home run campaign in 1998, the fact is that it was just a cookie cutter stadium and it was time for a new ballpark. It just didn’t have the mystique of a Fenway Park or Wrigley Field, and didn’t have the amenities of newer stadiums like Citizens Bank Park. But fans in St. Louis are excited about their new ballpark (which is actually the third for the Cardinals; the original Sportsman’s Park stood from 1892-1966 and took the Busch Stadium name in 1953) that holds 46,861 fans and figures to be full all season long. So if you want to be a part of the inaugural season at Busch Stadium III, the time is now to get your St. Louis Cardinals tickets.
A lot has changed in the four decades since the last stadium was built, and this new ballpark promises many more fan-friendly features and family entertainment options. And of course it will still have a dramatic view of the Gateway Arch. The stadium will also feature the new “Ballpark Village” with bars, restaurants, entertainment and the Cardinals team museum for before and after the game. So get your St. Louis Cardinals baseball tickets now to see Jim Edmonds, Albert Pujols, Chris Carpenter and the rest of Tony LaRussa’s squad go for another World Series appearance.
