amys614 - 1) I lived in STL for 2 years while I was a flight attendant and we LOVED going to the games. So much fun in stl just for the atmosphere. I'm from cinci so would go to reds games all the time growing up...and to your next comment, we were at a spring training game in Sarasota when I was, I believe, 6 and I got hit in the face by a foul- got taken to the team doc and everything.
ETA- I really don't care about the sport but love the atmosphere. Baseball just screams summer to me. Same goes for football. Love going to buckeye games (although being around all of the students makes me feel old...) but really don't care about the sport...purely the social aspect.
