ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The cost to be in the ballpark to watch a St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training game is higher than normal this season, with COVID restrictions limiting the number of fans. That could be something we carry over to Busch Stadium when the regular season begins.

In fact, the cheapest ticket you can buy for the home opener on April 8 is nearly $500. But the odd thing is, the Cardinals haven't yet announced that fans will even be allowed into the stadium.

At last check, there are about 40 tickets for sale on StubHub for opening day in St. Louis. The problem is nobody knows if those tickets will be usable. A Cardinals official tells KMOX, the team is still waiting to find out how many fans will be allowed into Busch Stadium.

He says those tickets on secondary markets are probably season ticket holders who are putting their tickets up for sale just in case.

So, you may be able to buy tickets, but you may not be able to use them at Busch Stadium.

The Cardinals have not yet announced single-game tickets on sale through their website for the 2021 season.
