St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - This heat is also coinciding with the start of a ten game home stand for the Cardinals. But don't let the triple digit temps keep you from enjoying the Redbirds.
The stadium has upped the ante when it comes to cooling stations and emergency workers.
It is a typical July home game here in St. Louis, but it's still only June.
The crack of the bat isn't the only familiar sound you hear these days at Busch Stadium. Mother nature is keeping first aid workers very busy.
"It's not unusual on a warm day like this for us to see over 50 heat related case," said Director of Operations at Busch Stadium Joe Abernathy.
For the next week at least, they are calling for triple digits temperatures and to battle that the stadium is focused on keeping you safe. There are more water centers, misting stations and extra medical staff.
"We are trusted with their safety and a lot of that does include medical response," said Abernathy.
Abernathy says one third of those that are treated are normally those working in the stadium. So if you are at Busch during this homestand and you are feeling overheated, Abernathy says look for ushers or someone working at the stadium and they can direct you to one of the three first aid centers.
Most of the fans we ran into know how to pack a cooler of necessities.
"Rally towels to get wet in case we need to put them around our neck, peanuts, chips, water and an ice pack underneath," said Redbirds fan Diane Plummer.
If you do run out look for free waters centers they are scattered throughout the stadium.
If you are outside getting ready to go inside and just need a brief cool down, or shower, follow the advice of Jim Behrmann.
"It's just too hot out here, really to hot," said Behrmann.
Because of the heat, the Redbirds and staff will have the same cooling stations and number first aid personnel all weekend long and most likely through next week.
