  • Opening day

    As early as 1950, when the Cards opened at home, they played at night, and seem to have almost exclusively since

    St Louis isn't exactly Miami Beach in early April

    Any reason day openers were particularly unpopular

    Well now they have opening day during the day but I think it was still in the early days of night baseball and teams just trying to sell it. Also the Cardinals at that time established themselves as one of the powerhouses in all of baseball and night time means prime time so maybe that is another reason. Baseball in all was at it's peak though at that time in terms of popularity.
