Cardinals Debut "Women in Baseball: How They Made History" at Hall of Fame and Museum
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 20, 2016 - The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum has opened its new special exhibit entitled "Women in Baseball: How They Made History" on Friday, November 18. The exhibit, which replaces last year's special exhibition "Farming the Business of Cardinals Baseball", examines women's involvement and contributions to St. Louis baseball and the game at large.

"The artifacts we have gathered for this special exhibit are some of the most unique and oldest items from our own collection, but also include important artifacts and images on loan from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Missouri Historical Society and various individuals," said Paula Homan, Cardinals Museum Curator. "It really enables us to tell the stories of the barrier-breaking women who have influenced this organization, and all of baseball, in a fitting way."

"Women in Baseball" features over 100 artifacts which tell stories about Major League Baseball's first female owner, the origins of the iconic birds on the bat logo, local women from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and more. Exhibit highlights include a "Ladies' Gala Day" giveaway from 1885, the oldest stadium giveaway in the Cardinals Museum collection; Allie May Schmidt's original hand-painted cardinal birds, which were the inspiration behind the club's logo; the ladies' day entrance sign from 1950 used to welcome patrons of Ladies' Day through a dedicated gate at Sportsman's Park; and a hands-on interactive that shows the changing circumference of the baseballs used by the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League players from 1943-1954.

The Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the offseason. The special exhibit is open to the public through the conclusion of the 2017 baseball season and is included with admission to the museum. To purchase Cardinals Museum tickets or learn more about museum membership, visit cardinals.com/museum.


Cardinals Fans enjoy Ballpark Village
Thousands of visitors toured Ballpark Village, April 6, 2014, in the shadow of the bronze bust of Hall of Fame Broadcaster, Mr. Jack Buck, who thrilled Cardinals baseball fans with his famous "That's a Winner!". The bust and window display honoring Mr. Buck is located on the north side of Busch Stadium, across from Ballpark Village, which is anchored by Cardinals Nation, Budweiser Brew House, FOX Sports Midwest Live!, PBR St. Louis - A Cowboy Bar, Howl at the Moon, and Drunken Fish.

Upgrades and New Changes at Busch Stadium
One of the biggest changes fans noted in the 2015 season at Busch Stadium was the installation of walk-through metal detectors at all of the gates and stadium entrances.
Cardinals Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Busch Stadium
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Opening Day for 2016 was particularly special as the Cardinals celebrated the 10th anniversary in Busch Stadium and the 2006 World Championship squad.

Located in the heart of the downtown business district, the facility features classic arched openings similar the nearby Cupples Station warehouses, west of the site. The stadium features a creative use of old and new materials, from red brick and concrete to exposed steel and glass.

The majority of spectators have dramatic views of the Gateway Arch and the downtown St. Louis skyline. The ballpark has expanded bleacher sections, a state-of-the-art video board and entertainment system.

The facility has increased access for fans with disabilities, new escalators and more elevators. Disabled drop-off locations are: Gate 2, at Poplar and Eighth Streets; Gate 4 (Plaza of Champions), at Clark and Eighth Streets; and, Gate 6 on Broadway.

A main-level concourse circles the entire ballpark, providing a 360 degree view of the playing field. Home plate is located in the southwest corner of the site. The stadium features lowered seating and scoreboard heights in center field. A public plaza provides a perfect gathering spot for fans before and after games.

Ballpark Village will again be the place to be before, during and after the game. Since opening in March of 2014, Ballpark Village has hosted more than 5 million visitors of all ages from across the country and brought hundreds of great events to downtown.

Ballpark Village entered its second year in 2015 with the opening of the new Crown Room second-floor lounge in Budweiser Brew House, the addition of two 15-foot television screens in Fox Sports Midwest Live!, a two-sided permanent outdoor stage next to the Busch II infield and greatly improved sightlines into left center field in Busch Stadium.
