About Busch Stadium Seating Chart 2014

Busch Stadium is the official ballpark of St. Louis Cardinals of the Major League Baseball franchise located at Clark Street, St. Louis, Missouri. It replaced two former ballparks of the Cardinals which were also called Busch Stadium. On April 4, 2006, the new stadium was opened with the minor league games between Springfield Cardinals and Memphis Redbirds. This ballpark is informally called New Busch Stadium III or New Busch Stadium and is the third St. Louis stadium to carry the name Busch Stadium, first one in 1953 (formerly Sportsman’s Park) and second one is a multi-purpose stadium, Busch Memorial Stadium. On July 14, 2009, Busch Stadium hosted the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

Construction
The Cardinals proposed in 1995 that a new stadium should be built but were unsuccessful to get enough funding for its project for a couple of years. The Missouri government signed the proposal with the team in 2001; however, in May 2002, the succeeding funding bill cancels it out, leaving it on pending. The ballpark was financed through bank loans, private bonds, St. Louis County long-term loan and capital from the team. The development of the stadium also includes the creation of Ballpark Village at a cost amounting to nearly $665 million while the stadium costs $65 million. The planned Ballpark Village will be located outside the new ballpark’s centerfield on the old Busch Stadium. However, the construction of Ballpark Village may not materialize due to issues in its funding as of 2012. Populous (formerly HOK Sport), headed by senior project designer Jim Chibnall, designed the New Busch Stadium with contractor, Hunt Construction at an assessed cost of $345 million.

Features and Amenities
The ballpark design includes brick and steel, arched entryways at the main gate. Its construction did not start until the old Busch Stadium was finally demolished. Fans can enjoy an excellent view of the entire ballpark, Gateway Arch and the downtown St. Louis skyline. There are three seating levels consisting of the main concourse, terrace concourse and loge concourse decks. All concourses are open (even the upper level) to enable fans to view the game while they are in the concessions. The main scoreboard is above the right centerfield of the seating area while the out-of-town scoreboard is at the right of the main scoreboard. Busch Stadium also hosts numerous events and parties in their US Cellular Family Pavilion, Backstop Bar and Coca-Cola Rooftop Deck.

West side entrance Gate 3 of the ballpark features a symbolic huge bridge mirroring the Eads Bridge over the entrance. There’s also a bronze statue of legendary Cardinals player Stan “The Man” Musial outside the entrance. At the corner of Clark and Eighth Street, statues of famous players such as Dizzy Dean, Enos Slaughter, Red Schoendenst, Lou Brock, Roger Hornsby, George Sisler and Cool Papa Bell, Ozzie Smith and broadcaster, Jack Buck.

Fans also have access to various food and beverage concessions such as St. Louis favorite pork steak sandwich and toasted ravioli, bratwurst, nachos and peanuts. Their exclusive Champions Club offers multiple-course buffet, plasma television and the chance to be in a radio or TV broadcast both as they are located inside the bar.
