World Series Return Means Big Bucks For St. Louis

Busch Stadium prepares for Game Three of the National League Division Series

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Cardinals’ loss in Game 4 of the World Series isn’t all bad for St. Louis — it means the series will return to Busch Stadium for at least one game.

The Texas Rangers beat the Cardinals 4-0 Sunday to even the series at two games apiece, assuring at least a six-game series.

The series returns to St. Louis for Game 6 on Wednesday and a possible Game 7 on Thursday.

The St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association estimates the World Series could have a $24 million impact on St. Louis if it goes to seven games. The additional home games mean more money for St. Louis-area hotels, restaurants, bars and shops, and more tax dollars for the city and county.
