So, um, baseball season starts today. Home Opener
. You can't go, because all remaining tickets were auctioned online, and even if the auction hadn't ended on Monday, March 30, the lowest starting bid for tickets was $200. You can wander around the general vicinity of Busch Stadium (Broadway and Poplar Street; 314-345-9500 or www.stlouiscardinals.com
) today and enjoy any number of free pep rallies; KTRS has a big one planned with Fredbird, but details are skimpy as of press time. The Cardinals opening home stand continues against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday through Thursday (April 7 through 9), and then against the Houston Astros Friday through Sunday (April 10 through 12). Any remaining tickets for these games are priced at $8 to $250.
