Post-season Baseball Means Big Business

One more reason to hope the Cardinals make a deep run in the post-season: an infusion of cash to downtown businesses.

Adam Allington of KWMU recently reported on the economic impact of Cardinal playoff games on the bars and restaurants near the ballpark:

The last time the Cardinals went to the playoffs was the year they won the World Series in 2006. At that time, the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association calculated the total economic impact at $3.1 million per playoff game and $4.5 million per World Series game.
