What Can I Bring into Busch Stadium? Will they check my bags?

2016 Economic Impact Analysis
Based on a projected Cardinals regular season attendance of 3.4 million fans,
the St. Louis Regional Chamber projects that the team will generate an estimated $184.1 million in direct impact and another $160.1 million in indirect spending.
These impacts reach a total of $344.2 million in regional economic activity.
The Chamber’s analysis uses the economic impact model, IMPLAN, which measures how spending tied to an event has multiple impacts and spreads throughout a
region, thereby benefiting households and firms within the region.This figure is based on estimates of visitor spending and operations expenditures at Busch Stadium.
Historically, out-of-town visitors constitute about 40% of game attendees and visitor spending on dining, lodging and shopping provides a significant boost to the regional economy.
