Busch Stadium

Home of St. Louis Cardinals

Lighting Up the Heart of St. Louis

St. Louis Cardinals fans are given one more reason to celebrate the 2019 home opener at Busch Stadium. The Cards are lighting it up in 2019, giving fans a new visual experience when playing on home turf. “We are told that this will be the best outdoor lighting facility in professional sports,” said Joe Abernathy, Vice President of Facility Planning and Engineering for the St. Louis Cardinals. Busch Stadium is now one of 18 Major League Baseball stadiums with LED lighting technology. The Cards partnered with Planled to install the system. Abernathy said it has the highest, true-to-life color rendering in an outdoor sports venue. The system provides 90% of the quality of natural light that allows uniformity by reducing shadows and glare.

The Cardinals partnered with Planled to install new LED lights in Busch Stadium. The project was completed in March, 2019.

Since we moved into the new Busch Stadium in 2006, our field lighting has received high marks in MLB evaluations. However, with the recent advances in LED lighting technology we now have an opportunity to further improve the quality of our field lights and reduce our operating and maintenance cost.
