Busch Stadium

St. Louis, MO

Architecture - 9

This brand new ballpark incorporates a lot of what has made other new ballparks successful. The only things we didn't like was that you can't see the playing field from the concourse and they put the press box in the very upper deck. Great view of the Arch over centerfield.

Location/Surrounding Area - 9

Smack dab in the middle of the city with plenty of hotels, restaurants, and bars within walking distance.

Food - 3.5

Limited options, but what they do have is good.

Fan Support/Knowledge - 10

Billed as the best fans in baseball, they didn't disappoint.

Atmosphere - 8.5

Great ballpark, great fans, great team.

In-Game Entertainment - 7.5

Good videos, some dance team interaction, tshirt toss.

Scoreboard - 7.5

New & clean, but the graphics could have been better.

Parking/Transportation - 7

Good amount of parking. We were told that "traffic usually isn't this bad" by a couple of people, but it was terrible the night we went to the game.

Seating - 8

Nice wide seats angled towards the action. We'd like to see more in the lower deck and less corporate suites. Seats are expensive. $13 for standing room.

X-Factor/Bonus - 8

No one is going to miss the old Busch with this new ballpark.
