St. Louis Cardinals fans are well known for undying loyalty and support.
They fill the stands at Busch Stadium day in and day out decked out in Cardinal Red from head to toe.
And the Cardinals certainly give their fans a reason to come out and support them.
They’ve won a National League record 11 World Series titles and have captured 19 National League pennants.
They’ve also reached the postseason three straight years, having gone on a 17-game win streak at the end of last year to capture the second NL Wild Card, and reached the NLCS in 2019.
But tonight, a little history will be made.
Not by the players on the field, but by the loyal fans in the stands.
The @Cardinals will set a major league record tonight when they welcome their 50 millionth fan to Busch Stadium. They’ll reach it in their 1,221st game at the ballpark, which opened in 2006. The previous mark (1,259) was set by the Giants at Oracle Park from 2000-2015. #stlcards

This is just further proof of the loyalty and support that St. Louis fans show their team day in and day out.
The house is always packed at Busch Stadium with fans who are ready to cheer on their Cardinals and watch them try and capture their 12th World Series title.
Tonight, they’ll break an attendance record previously held by the San Francisco Giants.
Undying loyalty and support usually means that a team is doing something right and giving fans a reason to show up to the ballpark.
Perhaps the fanfare of having Albert Pujols back in St. Louis to spend his final year with Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright is contributing to that some, but even if Pujols hadn’t returned, the loyalty of Cardinals fans remains unparalleled by most other fan bases.
The Cardinals play host to the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight as they break that attendance record and reach 50 million fans in the ballpark.
