Busch Stadium Hosting First Football Game in 2013

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Busch Stadium will

host its first-ever football game on Sept. 21, a match-up between Southeast

Missouri State and Southern Illinois University.

Details were announced Monday at the

ballpark.

The field will be mostly in the outfield,

though a small part will be on the infield dirt.

There will be about six days to convert

the field for football after the Cardinals conclude a home stand. But after the

football game, stadium crews will have less than two days to get the field back

to baseball before the Cardinals host Washington.

The new

Busch opened in 2006. The previous Busch Stadium was home to the football

Cardinals, and the Rams used it briefly before the dome was ready in the middle

of their first season in St. Louis.
