Six-year-old St. Louis stadium to shed rusty metal panels

In a reminder that not only old stadiums show wear and tear, a four-foot piece of metal trim fell off the outside of the St. Louis Cardinals’ Busch Stadium yesterday, closing nearby sidewalks and leading to an inspection of the rest of the stadium. After rusted bolts were found holding the decorative panels in place, the other panels are now being removed, with plans to have the work completed well before the Cards return from a road trip next Tuesday.

All of which is unusual, but hardly extraordinary. And it’s notable that no one is declaring it to be a sign that the six-year-old Busch Stadium is falling down and needs to be replaced — unlike the case when bits have fallen off of certain other stadiums I could name.
