"Busch Stadium" (also referred to informally as ""New Busch Stadium"" or ""Busch Stadium III"") is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, of Major League Baseball/MLB. The stadium has a seating capacity of 43,975, and contains 3,706 club seats and 61 luxury suites. It replaced Busch Memorial Stadium and occupies a portion of that stadium's former footprint. A commercial area, dubbed St. Louis Ballpark Village/Ballpark Village, was built adjacent to the stadium over the remainder of the former stadium's footprint.

The baseball park/ballpark opened on April 4, 2006 with an exhibition between the Minor league baseball/minor league Memphis Redbirds and Springfield Cardinals, both affiliates of the St. Louis Cardinals, which Springfield won 5-3 with right-hander Mike Parisi recording the first win. The first official major league game occurred on April 10, 2006 as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 6–4 behind an Albert Pujols home run and winning pitcher Mark Mulder.

The highest attendance for a sports event was on May 23, 2013 when 48,263 people watched Chelsea Football Club and Manchester City Football Club play a friendly match.

It holds the heat well.

When you go play there, it's suddenly, 'Oh, I get it now,'.

I'm not here to talk about the past.

How many times are you in a situation like this? ... You're in the limelight. You're on what is supposedly the best team in the game. You're making a run at the World Series. I've had an average year for me, solid in several areas, definitely with room for improvement in a lot of categories. But I've been above average in a lot of ways.

It's still attached, ... It's my one God-given gift. It bounces back. We do have a great staff of trainers, but I can throw four days in a row, and then I need a day off.

This, ... is the place that gave birth to me and gave me the chance to become the player I was.
