Also see . . .  Sportsman's Park on Wikipedia. Sportsman's Park was the home of the Cardinals until 1966, when it was replaced by Busch Stadium II. August Busch (then-Cardinals owner) donated the land of Sportsman's Park, and today it is the site of Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club. The grandstands were torn down, but the baseball diamond still exists. (Submitted on September 3, 2020, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
