Stadium Overview
Some information has not yet been updated to reflect Ballpark Pal's 2022 methodology changes
  Located about 2,000 feet west of the Mississippi River, the 3rd iteration of Busch Stadium is one of the clearest pitchers parks in all of Major League Baseball. Like its predecessor, the field is nearly symmetrical in layout with most portions of the fence playing deeper than a typical MLB park. If there is one spot to hit a HR at Busch itís straight-away CF, which measures a couple feet shorter than the MLB average.

  Not only does the St. Louis venue rank toward the bottom of the league in expected HRs, but its traditional shape makes it a difficult spot for doubles and triples as well. Typically, irregular angles, wide open areas of the outfield, and tall fences are what give way to extra base hits. Busch Stadium has none of these.

  One notable aspect of the park is that itís pretty susceptible to wind (ranked 5th in wind receptiveness). Although wind speed is close to the MLB average, its direction can vary quite a bit leading to the potential for different day-to-day run environments. Average temperature at Busch is 77 degrees (7th warmest in MLB), but carry distance still ranks close to the middle of the pack. Overall, Ballpark Pal ranks the venue 28th for runs, 25th for home runs, and 24th for doubles and triples.
