New Stadium Leaves Something to be Desired

Sources familiar with old Sportsman's Park and Old Busch Stadium in St. Louis, now both destroyed, report that the new $365 million ballpark just opened for the Cardinals is beautiful but suffers from a critical design flaw. The elevation of the seat rows is so shallow that fans cannot clearly see the field over those seated in front of them, and must peak back and forth between the heads to view the batter, then the pitcher, because both cannot be seen together in the same view.
