Busch Stadium (St. Louis, Missouri - 2002)

For me this is where it all began.  My first professional baseball game was here in 1984.  The Cardinals beat the Expos 4-0.  We had to leave around the 7th because my younger brothers couldn't last the whole game.  =)

I've been back plenty of times and I've never not enjoyed it.  (In fact, as I think back, I've never been there and seen them lose.)

In the past few years the Cardinals have been trying to secure funding from the state to build a new stadium and redevelopment / mixed-use area.  Click here for details.  As much as I'd love to see a new, modern stadium, I still have a bit of a "Field Of Dreams" romantic connection to Busch Stadium.
