Few cities exhibit baseball fever like St. Louis, and a Cardinal’s home game is not to be missed if you’re visiting; just be sure to wear something red. However, if you’re timing is off, tours of the stadium are held on all the other days of the year. See the locker rooms, the press box, the 11 World Series trophies, and learn lots of insider trivia about the Cardinal organization and the construction of the third Busch Stadium completed in 2006. Unfortunately, there’s no touching that beautiful natural turf or running of the bases. Tours take about an hour and depart from Gate 5. Advance ticket sales are not possible, so get there early to make sure you get the tour you want; tours often sell out. The stadium also includes a Build-a-Bear Workshop dedicated to making Fredbirds, the team mascot.

1st game of the season
Seen the Cards vs. Mets. Friday’s game was super slow and cold. But Saturday game was great! Lots of good food and fun entertainment.
I traveled over 8 hours and hurried to try to make it to the game. We were in town for the NSTA science conference. We did not make it to the game at the start…
