Busch Stadium (also referred to informally as "New Busch Stadium" or "Busch Stadium III") is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball. It replaced Busch Memorial Stadium and occupies a portion of that stadium's former footprint. Busch Stadium has been chosen by MLB to host the 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The ballpark opened on April 4, 2006 with an exhibition between the minor league Memphis Redbirds and Springfield Cardinals, both affiliates of the St. Louis Cardinals, which Springfield won 5-3. The first official major league game occurred on April 10, 2006 as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 6–4 behind an Albert Pujols home run and winning pitcher Mark Mulder. A commercial area, dubbed Ballpark Village, is being developed adjacent to the stadium over the remainder of the former stadium's footprint. The stadium is the third stadium in St. Louis to carry the name Busch Stadium. Sportsman's Park was renamed Busch Stadium in 1953, after team owner Gussie Busch. The first Busch closed in 1966, and both the baseball Cardinals, and the NFL's St. Louis Cardinals moved to a new multi-purpose stadium, named Busch Memorial Stadium.

The 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be the 80th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL) the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game will be held on July 14 2009 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis Missouri the home of the National League St. Louis Cardinals. The game will be the first all-star game held in St. Louis since 1966. This will be the seventh year in which the All-Star Game determines home field advantage in the 2009 World Series with the American League winning all six games to date under this format. Currently the National League leads 40–37–2 but has not won since 1996. Fox will televise the contest with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver in the booth for the game broadcast. Pre-game coverage will begin at 7 on ESPN. Outside the USA Rogers Sportsnet (Canada) and ESPN America (Europe) will carry MLB's international feed with their own video feed and announcers.The Cardinals had hoped to use the event to show off its planned Ballpark Village residential and entertainment complex to be built on the site of the former Busch Memorial Stadium across the street from the new ballpark. However the plans have not materialized and Cardinals in March said they will use the old park for a softball field and parking lot during the game.On April 22 2009 All-Star balloting began on with eight position players (excluding pitchers and designated hitters) from each of the 30 teams being nominated for fans to vote. As with last year only 25 email ballots could be cast and voting officially ended at 11:59 ET on July 2. Final Rosters with the exception of the final vote were announced on July 5.Fans voted for up to three players per league to participate in the State Farm Home Run Derby
