Busch Stadium has been drawing a new crowd recently, hosting international Soccer matches — turning the St. Louis Cardinals’ diamond into a “football pitch.”

I was honored to be apart of history when the American game of football made its debut at the new Busch Stadium over the weekend.

Southern Illinois University and Southeast Missouri State took the field for the first football game at the new Busch Stadium Saturday and I was there to catch all the action for the Missouri Valley Conference.

The piece was posted to the MVC’s Valley TV and will air in an upcoming MVC televised football game.
