Autozone Park

This is the entrance to Autozone Park (Union & Third), the home to the Memphis Redbirds baseball team. The Redbirds are the AAA affiliate team for the St Louis Cardinals. This ballpark opened in 2000, the previous seasons being played at the old Tim McCarver stadium in Midtown Memphis. This stadium is quite similar to Busch stadium in St Louis, and is one of the premier stadiums in the AAA system. It seats 12,300 (fixed seats), and can accommodate 15,000+ with its additional bluff seating and picnic areas and luxury boxes. The new season begins in early April, and we can't wait!

The Cardinals are my team. I grew up going to the ballpark in St. Louis. This one does look a lot like the new park.

Nice entrance... ar the entrance to our state fair here you have to walk through the legs of a large cowboy, very similar to your baseball player.... very funny.
