1. Before there was a Busch Stadium (either the old ballparks or the new one), where did the Cardinals play their home games?

During the pre-Busch Stadium era, the Cardinals played in Sportsman’s Park. The team shared it with the American League St. Louis Browns until 1953, when Browns owner Bill Veeck sold his stake in the stadium to the Cardinals, who renovated the park and renamed it Busch Stadium. A second-generation Busch Stadium was built and occupied from 1966 to 2005, before the current downtown stadium opened.
