Is This Really Happening?
New stadium going up in downtown St. Louis. The right field stands are already up and visible in the top left quadrant of the picture. The picture is oriented facing east/southeast (Mississippi River just beyond the top edge of the picture). The current stadium is on the left (north). This is kind of exciting, yet sad, because I love the current Busch Stadium. Where the current stadium is now will be the left field stands (left of the picture). Construction on that will begin after the current stadium is torn down at the end of this baseball season, with opening day 2006 set as the opening date for the new stadium.
