Ever since the New Busch Stadium was erected, plans of a Ballpark Village have come and gone. Now, after several years of waiting, St. Louis was finally granted its wish.
And talk about timing! With its construction underway at the end of the baseball season in 2013, I was able to get involved with the different phases of its construction leading up to its Grand Opening in March of 2014.
Our first bit of involvement with St. Louis’ newest attraction came with the advent of the FOX Sports Midwest #BPVFanCam. Each week we created an episode, showing people a sneak peak of BPV and what it will have to offer. Below are the weekly episodes we hosted leading up to its opening.
- Ballpark Village’s PBR Bar
- Ballpark Village’s Bud Brew House
- FOX Sports Midwest Live! Marketplace
- Ballpark Village Outdoor Spaces
- Ballpark Village Grand Opening
- FOX Sports Midwest Studio
- Opening Day at Ballpark Village
This “construction” project was such a fun opportunity and allowed me to really form some great relationships with the amazing people behind BPV, and they were gracious enough to include us in all of the opening events.

I will always remember being apart of this historical time in the St. Louis sports community and will forever hold it in my heart.
I felt so blessed by this experience that I HAD to write about it in my “Teryn’s Hot Topics” edition for the week.
I look forward to the opportunities to come with this spectacular new venue!
