ST. LOUIS – One of St. Louis's favorite sandwiches will be coming to the home of the Cardinals for the 2018 season.

The Cardinals selected the Gioia's hot salami sandwich to represent Busch Stadium in Major League Baseball's Food Festival. Because the food has to be sold in the stadium, that mean's Gioia's will be coming to Busch for the first time in 2018.

Gioia's was awarded the James Beard Foundation's America's Classic award in 2017, which owner Alex Donley said was like "winning an Oscar if I was a movie."

Gioia's Deli is celebrating 100 years in business this year, and they will apparently be celebrating with the Cardinals.

Gioia's Hot Salami sandwich will be served at the Gioia's Deli stand in section 151 on the main concourse of level one behind home plate.
