“Take Me Out to Ballpark Village”
We all had high hopes for a dry afternoon at our first official in person AND outdoor program since March 2020. Instead, we had a drizzly day. Despite the gloomy weather, the 100-plus in attendance enjoyed the networking and insight provided by Dan Farrell, SVP Sales and Marketing for the St. Louis Cardinals, and Mike LaMartina, COO for Ballpark Village, about the development. The crowd learned about the thoughtful placement of historic documents and images from the Cardinals past throughout the entire development. Be sure to look for them quietly integrated into the fabric of the entire area next time you visit. Both speakers were interesting and very approachable by those wanting to learn more after their presentation.
Despite the rain, the outdoor setting couldn’t be beat! The rooftop terrace called The Bullock overlooks Busch Stadium and Cardinal Nation. It provided enough covered space to shelter everyone and amazing views.
Attendees also took tours of Spark, a co-working space just above The Event Lawn, and of the rooms in the Live by Loews hotel and its signature Whiskey Room.
