(KMOV) – The St. Louis Cardinals’ run through the playoffs is having a direct effect on the lives of city employees.

The mayor announced that the city will postpone furloughs planned for this year.

So far, city officials say the seven home playoff games have generated almost $2 million in additional tax revenue for the city.

They also say if there is a game six and seven at Busch Stadium, that would mean another $900,000 for the city’s bottom line.
