ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — In baseball, the term “hit the showers” had new meaning Sunday.
Over one-hundred thousand Cardinals fans braved the 104 degree heat over the weekend to see the Cardinals play.
Fans got some extra perks to cope with the heat. Cold water was given out for free, also fans could cool down in cooling centers inside the stadium, and outside thanks to a fire department sprinkler. Weekend baseball fans had “in-and-out” privileges during the game to cool off in the outdoor showers.
Well over one-hundred people sought relief from the heat at ballpark first aid centers, a third of them staff members needing help themselves to cope with the heat.
