Postseason baseball provides economic boom to St. Louis region

(KTRS) – A Red October means big green from businesses in the St. Louis area. The Cardinals are in the playoffs yet again–the fifth consecutive year and calculations show that each postseason game means millions in additional spending.

The St. Louis Regional Chamber of Commerce says each game translates to a $5.9 million impact. They say the playoffs typically bring out-of-town guests and additional business at hotels, shops, and restaurants.

3,000 game-day employees at Busch Stadium also get additional work.
