Driving to the Games
MoDOT’s construction work on area interstates in the City of St. Louis should be completed by the time fans make their way downtown for playoff games. Motorists who use I-70 in the city should remember that the express lanes will be closed, so they should allow extra time for their drive.

Alternative Transportation
MetroLink is planning extra service to accommodate Cardinals fans and will continue MetroLink service until the downtown stations are cleared after the game.

BUSCH STADIUM – POLICY REMINDERS
The Cardinals expect strong attendance this postseason, so fans are encouraged to arrive early to the games to enjoy all the festivities and to allow enough time for getting into the ballpark.
Bag Inspections Policy

The standard game-day bag inspection policies for Busch Stadium will be in effect. Bags will be allowed that meet Major League Baseball’s standard size restriction (16”x16”x8”), and all bags will be inspected prior to entry.

Fans will be permitted to bring small personal cameras as long as they do not obstruct other guest’s view and will be subject to inspection. No professional-sized photography equipment will be allowed except for members of the media with proper MLB Postseason credentials.

Non-alcoholic beverages such as water & soda in open cups or in clear plastic bottles no larger than 2 liters are allowed.

Alcohol, bottles, cans, thermoses, hard-sided coolers; hard plastic cups/mugs are not permitted.

Small banners and signs are allowed. Banners may be displayed as long as they do not hinder or interfere with a ball in play or distract or interfere with the view of another guest. Banners may not be displayed in fair territory, be obscene or in poor taste, attract abuse or cause a disturbance among other guests. They should be baseball-oriented and not commercial in nature.

Please minimize items you bring into the stadium to speed up the inspection process.

Expect long lines upon entry and allow yourself plenty of time to go through the inspection process.

Exit/Re-entry Policy
Standard Exit/Re-entry Policies are in effect. Guests wishing to leave the stadium, but planning to return during the same game must have their hand stamped at Gates 1, 2 or 4 as they exit the stadium. Guests must show ticket upon re-entry. Inspection policy will also be enforced.

No Smoking Policy
Standard Busch Stadium Smoking Policy is in effect. Busch Stadium is a smoke-free facility. Exit/Re-Entry turnstiles will be set up at Gates 1, 2 and 4 to allow fans access in and out of the stadium if they wish to smoke. Fans will get their hand stamped as they exit the stadium. Guests must show ticket upon re-entry. Inspection policy will also be enforced.
