New ballpark gets its name
St. Louis, MO – The sign for the new Busch Stadium was installed on Tuesday, giving the new ballpark its label.
The sign faces Highway 40 and is the latest addition to the ballpark. Crews have been working around the clock to build the stadium, which is scheduled to open April 10. That's the day the Cardinals open their 2006 home season, against Milwaukee.
The old Busch Stadium was demolished this fall after 40 seasons.
