ST. LOUIS, Missouri – May 2007 — In October 2006, St. Louis’ new Busch Stadium, home of the Cardinals, went on record as one of very few ballparks whose baseball team won the World Series in the facility’s inaugural season.
Construction for the new $365 million, 44,000-seat Busch Stadium, the third such home for the franchise, began back in January 2004. Dallas-based design and consulting firm Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams (WJHW) was charged with the audio system design portion of the project; however, this was not the company’s first experience working for the Cardinals. In the late-’80s, WJHW had been called to the second Busch Stadium to make some upgrades to the ballpark’s existing sound system, which, at that time, included the installation of various Crown power amplifiers. more
