"Our mission is simple: provide the definitive word on each story we cover, with the highest-quality presentation possible. As the electronic edition evolves, we’ll be adding extras that take advantage of the digital platform, such as bonus video and audio, picture galleries and a wealth of other material drawn from the extensive resources the Cardinals have to offer."

Getting to the Game
Fans will notice a few changes around the ballpark as a result of the Ballpark Village construction. The biggest change for motorists is that 8th Street is now a two-way street between Clark and Market with two north and southbound lanes.
Temporary stop signs are currently in place at the intersections of 8th and Clark, as well as 8th and Walnut, until new traffic signals are installed later this spring. Walnut is now also a two-way street between 8th and Broadway, with one westbound lane and two eastbound lanes.
Pedestrian traffic into the ballpark has also changed due to the construction of Ballpark Village. The biggest improvement fans will notice is that the pedestrian bridge from Stadium West
Parking garage has been removed and the intersection of Clark and 8th Street has been redesigned with a much larger sidewalk in front the plaza of champions the skirts the Cardinals Team Store.
Clark Street is also being improved and will be open to pedestrian traffic on Opening Day. The Cardinals Opening Day Rally will be at the corner 8th and Clark.
Highways and Other Roadwork
MoDOT will not have any scheduled lane closures on state highways inside the city limits for Opening Day and Opening Weekend. The department does have several construction projects around the city scheduled for 2013, including a bridge replacement at Jefferson over I-64 that may have one lane closed on I-64 around the clock in both directions for several months. MoDOT will make every effort to have all available lanes open into and out of the city before and after Cardinal home games. At this time, several I-64 and I-70 closures are planned for weekends, but will not be scheduled during Cardinal home games.
MetroLink is a convenient alternative to driving, allowing fans to avoid the cost of parking and game day traffic. To avoid the traffic congestion and the cost of parking on game day, fans can use one of 19 free Park-Ride lots along the MetroLink line and take the train to Stadium Station, right across the street from the ballpark. Check the Metro website www.MetroSt.Louis.org for schedules and the Park-Ride lot nearest you. There are also plenty of buses in Missouri and Illinois that will get fans to Busch Stadium including the RedBird Express that departs from the Water Tower at St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights, Illinois. The first RedBird Express leaves 2 ½ hours before the game and runs approximately every 5 minutes. On opening day, the RedBird Express will start running at Noon.
In February of this year, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cordish Companies broke ground on Ballpark Village – a mixed-use development on 10-acres adjacent to Busch Stadium. The first phase of Ballpark Village will be completed by Opening Day 2014.
The first phase will include over 100,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space including Cardinals Nation, the Budweiser Brew House, PBR St. Louis: A Cowboy Bar and the Live! At Ballpark Village marketplace.
Cardinals Nation will be a first-of-its-kind venue in baseball totaling over 30,000 square feet on three levels. It will include a two story restaurant, a retail store, a Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum, a special events space, and a 300-plus seat rooftop deck with views into Busch Stadium. A second building will house a 20,000 square foot, three-story Budweiser Brew House with a festive rooftop party deck also offering views into Busch Stadium. The two signature structures will be joined by the Live! At Ballpark Village marketplace, an indoor marketplace with a retractable roof covering the event space, designed to be a vibrant gathering space throughout the year for thousands of visitors.
The $100 million first phase also includes all of the streets, parking and site infrastructure to support the future phases of the seven-block mixed-use project, allowing the city to attract future development with pad-ready sites. The project is expected to have a positive impact on the local economy with nearly a thousand construction jobs and nearly 500 permanent jobs expected to be created as part of the initial phase alone.
As the Cardinals begin their eighth season of play in Busch Stadium, the team has made a number of improvements to the stadium during the off-season, including sowing the seeds of another successful season with the installation of new sod. During the fall, the Cardinals installed over 100,000 square feet of new sod. The sod, which was grown in Fort Morgan, Colorado, is a four way blend of Kentucky Bluegrass set in a 10 inch root zone that is 85% sand, 10% peat, and 5% Zeopro mixture.
In addition to the new playing surface and the improved, expanded sidewalk outside the Cardinals Team Store and plaza of champions at 8th and Clark, fans will notice an improved front façade thanks to the installation of new windows on the second level on the Northwestern section of the Stadium. The new windows run the length of the Budweiser Bowtie bar as well as Group Sales Corner above the Team Store and along the Group Sales Hallway above the ticket windows on 8th Street.
The Cardinals have installed new flooring in several areas of the ballpark and have added 150 energy efficient LED HD TV throughout the stadium. The team has also upgraded the outdoor furniture in several all-inclusive areas, upgraded several party suites, added fresh coats of paint and made a number of smaller improvements throughout the park.
New Menu for 2013
Delaware North Companies Sportservice, the St. Louis Cardinals’ concessionaire for more than 50 years, is preparing to welcome fans back to the Stadium with a starting lineup of food to please every fan’s unique taste.
New at Section 135 is The Double Play Tap and Grill, where traditional ballpark fare gets a high-end makeover. Fans can enjoy a thick and juicy cheddar stuffed burger on a pretzel bun, or a customizable four-hand nacho platter, and choose fresh toppings for both to suit their unique tastes.
Likewise, fans will find new additions throughout the park. Look for Kohn's Kosher Cart, featuring knockwurst and pastrami sandwiches at Section 147. Dizzy’s Diner locations (Sections 139, 161 and 446) have also been beefed up with the addition of The Horseshoe, an open-faced burger consisting of two beef patties topped with fries and cheese sauce. Other new additions include Bavarian Pretzel Sticks, at Sections 139, 161, 271 and 446, and Fried Pickle Spears, at Sections 271 and 509.
New Retail for 2013
From Opening Day apparel to personalized gifts, the Team Store has what fans need to look their game-day best no matter their unique style. Adding to the Team Store’s most exclusive selection of limited-edition Opening Day apparel and accessories, new this year is the Cardinals’ retro-style alternate jersey, worn during Saturday home games. This ivory and red jersey proudly features "St. Louis" across the chest instead of the traditional "Cardinals" insignia.
The Team Store also will feature Opening Day baseballs, t-shirts and lapel pins, exclusive to the Stadium, in addition to the new batting practice cap by New Era. The Team Store also is carrying the exclusive Victoria’s Secret PINK line, perfect for the stylish yet casual Cardinals fan. Fans who want to make a statement — about their fashion and their favorite team — can now do so with new Alex and Ani bangle sets. The bracelets, which come in brushed Russian gold or silver, can be customized with a variety of charms and stacked to create a unique combination.
Aside from the Cardinals games, Busch Stadium also hosts several weddings each year along with hundreds of special parties and celebrations. Fans can commemorate their special day with personalized memorabilia, such as wedding invitations, hand-etched wine glasses, personalized baseballs, and custom Mega Tickets, enlarged to 500 percent the size of a regular ticket, to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and retirements.
As in years past, the Team Store offers dozens of $15 and under souvenirs, including baseballs, mini-bats, koozies, magnets, baseball cards, jewelry, posters, postcards, key chains, lanyards, pennants, pins — and the No. 1 seller — foam fingers, and claws.
And, even while the construction progresses around Ballpark Village, the Team Store is ready to help fans get prepared for Opening Day. The store is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week, and offers free, 15-minute parking on the curb next to the store entrance at Clark and 8th Street, between Gates 3 and 4. Sportservice also operates nearly 20 retail kiosks throughout the ballpark, as well as three other licensed stores around the stadium, including:
Fans Nest at Broadway (including the Jersey Lettering Booth) – Main Concourse near Gate 1
Fans Nest at Home Plate – Level 4 behind Section 450
Fans Nest at Riverview Corner – Level 4 behind Section 437
Fans will want to stop by the Cardinals Authentics store in Ford Plaza (cardinals.com/authentics), the only place to get official, game-used, limited edition and autographed Cardinals memorabilia directly from the team. Fans can now order an engraved bat from Louisville Slugger, the official bat of MLB.

Cardinals, Wainwright agree on new five-year deal
JUPITER, Florida – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have reached agreement with All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright on a new five-year contract from 2014 through 2018. It is the largest contract in franchise history for a pitcher.
"Adam represents everything the Cardinals look for in a player," stated Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt, Jr. "He is an elite pitcher with a tremendous work ethic, a great teammate and leader, and a winning, championship caliber player. He has the highest personal qualities and personifies the Cardinals tradition of excellence."
Wainwright, a two-time National League Cy Young Award finalist (2009 & 2010), owns a career mark of 80-48 with a 3.15 ERA since making his Major League debut with the Cardinals in 2005. During his rookie campaign in 2006, the 6 foot -7 inch right-hander quickly earned a prominent place in Cardinals lore by securing the final out in series-clinching wins against the Mets in the National League Championship Series and the Tigers in the World Series.
"Knowing that Adam Wainwright will be the centerpiece of our rotation for years to come is something that we are thrilled about for many reasons," said Cardinals Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "Adam has certainly proven to be a true staff ace, and the leadership and mentoring that he provides will continue to be an invaluable asset to the organization."
Wainwright, 31, enjoyed banner seasons in 2009 and 2010, posting a league-best 19 wins to lead the Cardinals to an N.L. Central title in 2009. He won a career-best 20 games in 2010 and finished 2nd in the N.L. in ERA (2.42), earning his first All-Star selection.
Since becoming a full-time starter in 2007, Wainwright ranks 5th among active pitchers in ERA (3.14) and he stands 10th in both wins (78) and winning pct. (.624; 78-47) even though he missed the 2011 season due to elbow surgery. "Waino" is the career wins leader (44) at Busch Stadium III and he owns the 3rd-best ERA (2.70) in stadium history. Adam is ranked among the Cardinals all-time top-10 career leaders in strikeouts (908-9th) and winning pct. (.625-6th).
The Georgia native won the Rawlings Gold Glove award in 2009 and he was voted by his teammates as the Darryl Kile award recipient in 2008.

Go "Red For Kids" to celebrate Opening Day
ST. LOUIS– The St. Louis Cardinals are kicking off the 2013 season by encouraging local businesses, schools and other organizations to rally behind the team and the team’s charitable arm, Cardinals Care, by participating in Cardinals RED for Kids (#RED4kids).
RED, which stands for Rally Everyone Day, is the team’s version of an office "dress down" day in which participating organizations make a donation to Cardinals Care in exchange for the opportunity to sport their Cardinals clothes at work or school. Since last year, Cardinals Care has raised over $15,000 through RED for Kids.
"Cardinals Care was formed to give fans a way of teaming up with the Cardinals to help kids in our community," said Michael Hall, Vice President of Community Relations and Executive Director of Cardinals Care. "RED for Kids is a great way to join our effort to help kids in our community and show your support for the team as we celebrate the return of baseball."
To participate, local businesses and organizations can log onto cardinals.com/red and download the registration form. Individual participants within the organization are then asked to pledge a modest donation to dress down ($5 for example) and wear red in support of the Cardinals for the day. Companies can even make matching donations to support the cause. Schools are also encouraged to participate in Cardinals RED for Kids, but are not required to make a donation to get involved.
Participating schools, businesses and organizations are also encouraged to share a creative photo via the team’s website (cardinals.com/red) and on social media showing their Rally Everyone Day (#RED4kids) team spirit.
The organization that raises the most funds by April 30th will receive 100 Cardinals tickets personally delivered to their office by Fredbird. Winners will be contacted directly to select their game. For more information, or to sign up for Cardinals RED for Kids, visit cardinals.com/red.
Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the Cardinals organization to help children in our community – both on and off the baseball field. Since it was established in 1997, Cardinals Care has invested nearly $18 million in helping children, including providing nearly $11 million in grants to over 800 non-profit youth organizations, and building 19 youth ball fields in neighborhoods in both Missouri and Illinois. In 2013, Cardinals Care celebrates the 10th anniversary of the innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play. In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 4,500 kids who participate in the program each year.
