St Louis Cardinals vs Montreal Expos

Left Centerfield is the place to be in Busch.  Early arrivals come join Team Dallas out in the outfield Tuesday August 3rd.  Game Time is 7:10pm St Louis time.

Gracias,

I've heard the Cardinals are one of the toughest tickets in baseball.  Should we be ordering ahead for that Tuesday night game, or is it too late for that?  I realize it's only the Expos, but still....

I went ahead and called the ticket office and purchased seats in the bleachers.  Just to make sure.  To late to get them sent to you by mail...will call works at any window at that stadium.  

Bringing the big scoop to catch the big fly!  See you guys at the game

Sorry i didn't see this thread sooner...yes, the cardinals are one of a few teams in the league that draw over 3 million fans each year...tickets to a game are very hard to come by if you wait until the week of the game you wish to go to...


Factoid, if you are wondering why St. Louis draws so well, it is because of KMOX radio which reaches Kansas, Nebraska, Tenn, Kty, Arkansas and as far away as the Carolinas and the Dakotas...cities that do not have a team tend to be cardinal fans.

Boston and Ann Arbor will be mutually consorting with the enemy in section 507 (which is right center field) on Tuesday- I just bought tix for us.

I thought I was getting left center tix, but I apparently got my sections mixed up. Damn. I'm going insane trying to get packed for the trip. If any other teams end up in 507, come say hi. We'll be the morons heckling the Expos in rhymed couplets.

Eric....Dallas will join in the "metaphoric" crowd wave.  Expect us only to stand from our seats to catch a "big fly", make a beer run (which eventually brings on the bathroom run), or to cheer the best haiku to make either centerfielder acknowledge the poets.....Look for a bunch of loud Texans (with Jason Carney being the loudest) in left center!
