‘Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball,’ said the social commentator Jacques Barzun, and indeed nothing brings back waves of nostalgia to an American’s heart like baseball does. If you want to experience the feeling of being in the energized atmosphere of an all-American baseball match, the Busch Stadium is the place for you.
It opened to the public in 2006 and hosted its first major league game in that very some month. It was constructed in the even huger footprint of Busch Memorial Stadium, an older baseball field. The other part of the footprint is home to a newly developing commercial area called Ballpark Village.
- Today when you visit, there are all kinds of events you could catch and a lot of baseball games you can revel in.
- The stadium’s held college football games, professional soccer and have held concerts by The Eagles, U2, The Black Crowes and Dave Mathews Band in its ‘retro-classic’ styled field.
- There are pork steak sandwiches, toasted Ravioli and Budweiser, as well conventional baseball snacks like hot dogs filling the concession stands. Cardinal management also allows outside food and drink so for those of you want to save a penny, packing a small picnic is good option.
- You can relax in the air conditioned refreshments area and watch the match out on the field.
- Outside the Cardinal’s team store, you’ll find statues of famous baseballers such as Enos Slaughter, Dizzy Dean, Rogers Hornsby, Red Schoendienst, and Lou Brock.
- You can even donate to the charity of your choice through their initiative ‘Cardinal’s Care’.

Busch Stadium, Saint Louis Reviews - Write a Review
I love Busch Stadium! I've had the opportunity to sit in 5 different locations and they all had great views! Their promotions are fun, fireworks night is memorable, and the variety of food is fantastic. They gave vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and organic options located through out the different levels of the stadium. It's handicapped accessible with ramps, elevators, and escalators. There are ticket/seat locating staff to help if you can't find your seats (or get people out of your seats). The vendors are friendly and helpful. The concessions can be pricey but I've seen it higher at other stadiums. Parking can be close within Ballpark Village and there's a garage across the street, both with fees. Or there are many places to board a park and ride or uber. It's definitely a stadium you have to experience for yourself.
The new stadium is an enormous improvement over the old Busch stadium. I loved the views from the bottom to the top. The decision to leave the outfield open for a spectacular view of down town St. Louis and the Arch was pure genius. After the game, ballpark village is amazing, and downtown is only a hop and a skip away. It's honestly one of the best things to happen to St. Louis in awhile.
We enjoyed the game a lot but I really wish they would have let us bring in our water bottles. It was July and we have to leave then outside the gate. The water they sell is $5 a bottle and in July we all went through several bottles. We paid plenty for these tickets and then souvenirs, let's not price gouge on water. Some people might not have that extra $30 Just to spend on water and they would have been in trouble if not staying well hydrated on this day.
Beautiful stadium! Everything immediately around this area is perfect as you’d expect because we worship athletes in America and pay them millions to play a child’s game. Rather then use the money generated here to better the surrounding city, fund education, etc St. Louis and the team owner(s) have chosen to leave it alone doing the absolute minimum for tax benefits/publicity and I like that. “Keepin’ it real.” Just a short walk in all directions are some beautiful bombed out - looking empty buildings dotting the city landscape. Take in the artwork all over the city and don’t forget to bring spray paint to leave some yourself. IF you can find a spot that hasn’t been tagged. Really looks inviting to tourists or businesses that may want to move here. Just as much to blame are the city residents who put up with it. Come watch a game, enjoy the scenery and take home a car load of apathy.
Pretty huge stadium. Awesome that they sell 25 oz cans of beer, but be ready to pay for it! Hard to see scoring info with all the electronic billboards. Parking fairly steep but right across the street. Best place to park though if you want fast and easy exit. Fun only because I went to see the Cubs :)
