Today we celebrate the 50th Happy Baseball Birthday! of the St. Louis Arch.
The Arch, "The Gateway to the West," was completed 50 years ago today, October 28, 1965.
As baseball fans watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball games on TV, the famous Arch has always been a part of the games televised from Busch Stadium.
The Arch has watched over 9 Cardinals World Series appearances, including Championships in 1967, 1982, 2006, and 2011.
The City of St. Louis was once the western most outpost for big league baseball, with the National League Cardinals and from 1902 through 1953, the A. L. St. Louis Browns.
The Browns, sharing old Sportsman's Park with the Cardinals, won their only American League Pennant in 1944, only to lose the World Series to the Cardinals.
We salute the St. Louis Arch, and wish them a very Happy Baseball Birthday!
