Despite not seeing the game between the two teams, Memphis fans did get a look at the ball park they now own. Some call it a win-win situation with the ball park now being paid for, in part, by taxpayer dollars.
"There's some pros and cons to it. Memphis is trying to become a baseball town so you have to do some things that may not be as expedient as always has been. This would still be a good move," said Memphis resident Henry Hale.
Fans poured into AutoZone Park hoping to see the Cardinals Redbirds Exhibition game early Friday evening, but just before game time bad weather caused the game to be canceled. Those fans are what the Cardinals, Redbirds, and Memphis want.
When AutoZone Park first opened it drew around 800,000 fans, but the last couple of years that number has been about 500,000. Under the deal, the city will lease AutoZone Park to the Redbirds. Next season the Cardinals will make $5 million in improvements to the park.
St. Louis resident Tony Levan says Memphis can count on the Cardinals.
"The Cardinals are all class all the time. So anything they need done, they will try to make it a top facility," he said.
