Ballpark Village to Stay Equivalent of High School Parking Lot

A sweet softball field and a parking lot.  That’s the awesome action going on next to Busch Stadium right now, and its here to stay for a little while.

Go St. Louis!

Don’t expect to see the Ballpark Village site humming with construction next summer. The site, which is now home to a softball field and parking lot, will almost certainly look the same during the 2010 baseball season, said Bill DeWitt III, president of the St. Louis Cardinals.

“We don’t have full confidence that this market is ready for it yet,” DeWitt said in an interview after he spoke Thursday about the economics of Major League Baseball at Webster University.

Asked if that might happen in 2010, he said, “I’m done predicting.”

That’s cool.  We’re done looking for it.
