You can’t say you’ve never imagined yourself taking a few swings in the batter’s box at Busch Stadium. Well, it’s only $25,000 away.
You and 4a 4, friends, family members or coworkers would spend four hours inside the lower level of Busch Stadium, usually reserved for players. You’ll use the away locker room to get dressed, then take the field for a profession batting practice experience. Included in the cost is personalized baseball bats, authentic Cardinals hats and seating in the green, seats for 250 guests.
If you’re working on a slightly smaller budget, you can take the whole group to the underground batting cages behind the dugouts. That’ll cost you $1,350.
But if you’re wanting something a little more intimate, maybe a dinner date, well you can have a meal right on top of home plate (day or night). The cost, a minimum of $5,000 for up to 10 people.
Maybe you want to host the next family reunion on the field. How about dinner on the track behind home plate? That’ll run you a minimum of $4,500 for 150 people.

If you can’t have your wedding at the stadium, you can still take some wedding photos there. Go anywhere around the seats, dugouts or warning track for an hour and take as many photos as you’d like for $425.
