New Busch StadiumOn the heels of winning the World Series, the Cardinals organization has something else to look forward to.

As the Cardinals celebrated their 2006 World Series title on Monday night at the annual baseball writers banquet, Commissioner Selig announced that new Busch Stadium will host the 2009 All-Star game. As reported by the Post-Dispatch:

"One of the nicest parts of this job," Selig said at the banquet, "is going from city to city, and it's polite to say wherever I am that the city has great fans. But I'll say again, this is a remarkable baseball town with really an extraordinary tradition. There can't be a better baseball town in America. So I'm announcing tonight as a measure of our appreciation that in 2009 the All-Star Game will be played here."

St. Louis last hosted the All-Star Game in 1966 in a game best remembered for being played on a sweltering day with a temperature of 103 degrees and typically high July humidity. Since then, baseball's midsummer classic has made its way around North America, but not to St. Louis.
