Busch Stadium is one of the newest and most expensive stadiums in the MLB. The first thing you’ll notice when you step inside the stadium is the large area out in the left field power alley; this is the Ballpark Village, and it has something for everyone. Busch Stadium provides an excellent fan experience and is a tribute to the love and loyalty Cardinals fans have for their team.
If you’re looking to save a few bucks, the Cardinals allow fans to bring their own food and drinks to the game, as long as they are non-alcoholic. As far as concessions in the stadium go, there are some delightful dishes available to fans including build your own nachos and a burger stuffed with mac and cheese; these will cost you more than the average hot dog, but they are worth every penny. If you’re looking for something to catch a ball with because you left your glove at home, why not use the old go to popcorn bucket, especially when you can get BOTTOMLESS popcorn at the stadium for $14. You can mix and match between normal popcorn, buttered, cheese covered and caramel corn to satisfy each of your taste buds.
There are few better places to take in a ballgame than Busch Stadium where the city of St. Louis’s love for the Cardinals and the excellent facility create one of the best experiences in the majors.
Things to check out

Here Comes the King
The jingle from a classic Budweiser commercial is played during the bottom of the seventh inning. If you’re a true fan, you’ll clap along.
Budweiser beer, the king is second to none.
Just say Budweiser, you’ve said it all.
Here comes The King Of Beers, so lift your glass, let’s hear the call.
Budweiser Beer’s the one that’s leading the rest,
And beechwood aging makes it beer at its best.
One taste’ll tell you so loud and clear.
There’s only one Budweiser beer, there’s only one Budweiser beer!
When you say Bud there’s nothing left you can say.
(When you say Bud!)
When you say Bud, The King is right on his way!
(When you say Bud!)
The King is coming, let’s hear the call,
When you say Bud you’ve said it all.
When you say Bud you’ve said it all!
Ya da da da da da da da da da da
(Here comes The King…!)
