Busch Memorial Stadium



DescriptionRatingInfo
Busch Memorial Stadium, or Busch Stadium was the home of the St. Louis Cardinals National League baseball team from May 12, 1966 to October 19, 2005. It opened four days after the last game was played in their old home, Sportsman's Park (which had also been known since 1953 as Busch Stadium). The stadium was designed by architect Edward Durrell Stone and built by Grün & Bilfinger[1]. The roof's 96-arch design (called "The Crown of Arches") [2] echoed the iconic Gateway Arch, which was completed only a year before Busch Stadium officially opened. It was one of the first multipurpose facilities built in the United States from the early 1960s through the early 1980s, along with those in Washington, New York, Houston, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Minneapolis and some others. The original design of the stadium had called for a baseball-only format, but the design was altered to accommodate football, a fact which arguably shortened its existence. The stadium was destroyed by wrecking ball in late 2005, and part of its former footprint is used by its replacement stadium of the same name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busch_Memorial_Stadium
