Baseball Fans Enjoy World Series Experience at Dozer Park

PEORIA – Local St. Louis Cardinals fans did not need to travel to Boston for the live ball park experience Wednesday.
PEORIA – Local St. Louis Cardinals fans did not need to travel to Boston for the live ball park experience Wednesday.
Game One of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox is in the books. The Peoria Chiefs opened Dozer Park for baseball fans and aired the game on the stadium’s big screen.
The Chiefs became an affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals earlier this year.
The chilly temperatures did not stop nearly 200 fans from crowding the ball park suites, wearing the Cardinals gear. Admission was free.
There were a few Boston fans as well, like Coty Connour, Connour wore a Red Sox jersey but keeps the Cardinals logo on his wallet. He says he’s a fan of both ball clubs, and could not imagine a better way to kick off the World Series.
“Being at the stadium is kinda’ like the same thing with a lot less of a charge of actually going to the game. So I think it’s perfect,” he said.
“A lot of fun for us to celebrate our affiliation with the Cardinals, and nothing better than to open up the ball park and let the fans come in,” said Rocky Vonachen, president of the Peoria Chiefs. “They can’t be in Boston, so let them come here and enjoy the game here on our big screen.”
This is the only game the stadium will air for the series.
