Notes: Served as home to Rams after they relocated from Los Angeles while domed stadium was still under construction. Grass surface was replaced with AstroTurf in 1970, but was restored to grass field in 1996. In order to reconfigure field from baseball to football, two 8000-seat sections could be moved so that they were parallel to each other. Stadium owned by MLB Cardinals.

Fate: Demolished in 2005, the site is partially occupied by the new baseball stadium.
