Architects made it nearly circular in design but Busch Memorial Stadium was in the end shaped by a 40-season adventure of championship teams record setting moments and the collective energy of millions of Cardinals fans. Busch was affectionately embraced as the heart of Cardinal Nation and it was where St. Louis and much of the Midwest spent their summers. After hosting its first game on May 12, 1966 Busch Stadium welcomed six World Series and eight National League Championship Series. It was the setting when some of baseball's most celebrated records fell and the stage for many of the Game's greatest players and personalities. We'll never pass through its turnstiles again but the magic and the memories preserved on this commemorative DVD will remain with us forever.

The first World Series played indoors. The first time a World Series champion was crowned without winning a game on the road. The first World Series championship for the Minnesota Twins. The 1987 World Series home video also includes: Minnesota's frenzied fans and the "Homer Hankies". Grand slams hit by Dan Gladden and Kent Hrbek. The injured Cardinals battling back to win all three games in St. Louis. MVP Frank Viola's victories in Games One and Seven.
