Busch Stadium, Saint Louis, Missouri, USA
Tour Busch Stadium is an iconic baseball park the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, the city’s Major League Baseball franchise. The stadium has a seating capacity of 43,975, and contains 3,706 club seats and 61 luxury suites.
It replaced Busch Memorial Stadium and occupies a portion of that stadium’s former footprint. A commercial area, dubbed Ballpark Village, was built adjacent to the stadium over the remainder of the former stadium’s footprint.
The stadium opened on April 4, 2006 with an exhibition between the minor league Memphis Redbirds and Springfield Cardinals, both affiliates of the St. Louis Cardinals, which Springfield won 5-3 with right-hander Mike Parisi recording the first win. The first official major league game occurred on April 10, 2006 as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 6–4 behind an Albert Pujols home run and winning pitcher Mark Mulder.
