St Louis - Busch Stadium at Sunset

See where this picture was taken. [?]

Went down to St. Louis last night to catch one of the last Cardinals games of the season. Kind of a bittersweet game, knew it was for nothing and the seasons basically over - but on the other hand it was such a beautiful night and I was there to enjoy one of my favorite things - baseball. And Cards win! Took this just before the game as the sun was going down behind me - from the upper deck.

    Great shot, Joe!
    Haven't been to St. Louis since I was a kid.
    Love the way the sun is hitting the Arch.

    Great picture here. It almost reminds me of the close-knit atmosphere of a A or AA team in a smaller town. Something about it just suggests camaraderie. I really, really like it (even though I really, really hate the Cards :P).

    On a baseball note: The season may have been a throw away for the Cards, but at least you're not a Tigers fan. After acquiring Dontrelle and Cabrera, the Tigers had one of the best teams in the history of baseball--many were saying anything but a Championship would be a disappointment. Here it is, the end of the season and they sit in last place of the AL Central. I can only ask, what happened? Same goes for the 0-3 Lions (albeit minus the expectations). Hey, at least we still have the Red Wings and Pistons.

    Nice shot Joe! shame that this ballpark is practically in my backyard and I've never been inside it. Much as I like the old stadium I have to say they did a really nice job with this one. I remember thinking as the sun was setting Friday night that we were going to have a beautiful sunset-perfect for photographing the skyline. Unfortunately there are restricted areas on the East riverfront now and my pro photographer friend from the area was unavailable because he was exhibiting at Taste of StL.

    Hi Joe,
    I'm doing this job for AOL called City's Best. Basically it's a listing of restaurants, venues around St. Louis, and each one needs 6 photos. I can do the shots for most all the listings, but Busch Stadium is tricky, especially with my deadline. May I use this shot, and another one or two that you may have of Busch? Thanks! Doug

    True story. There is a man burried under the right field area of " Old Busch Stadium" aka "Sportsmans Park" on North Grand Blvd. in St.Louis, Mo. Or atleast his ashes are there. When Anheuser-Busch bought the Cardinals in 1953 the Chairman of the company August A. Busch Jr. ran the brewery and the Cardinals. He recieved a phone call one day in the mid to late 1950's from the team vice president informing him they might have a problem. He informed Mr. Busch that they had recieved a letter from a lawyer stating that his clent had died and that his last request was to be creamated and his ashes burried in Sportsmans Park. He asked Mr.Busch what he should do? After thinking about it for a minute Mr Busch told the executive. " Well I wouldn't want to disappoint the man. Well go ahead and bury the SOB. But keep it quiet"
