Ozzie Smith statue by Harry Weber outside Busch Stadium. After the World Series championship, Smith and the Cardinals agreed on a new contract in January 1983 that paid Smith $1 million per year. Smith was voted in as the National League's starting shortstop in the All-Star Game for the first time in 1983, and at season's end won a fourth consecutive Gold Glove Award. During July of the 1984 season, Smith went on the disabled list with a broken wrist after being hit by a pitch during a game against the Padres. Smith's return to the lineup a month later was not enough to propel the Cardinals to a postseason berth. In 1985 Smith amassed a .276 batting average, 31 stolen bases, and 591 assists in the field. The Cardinals as a team won 101 games during the season and earned another postseason berth. Facing the Los Angeles Dodgers in the now best-of-seven NLCS, a split of the first four games set the stage for Game 5 at Busch Stadium. With the score tied at two runs apiece in the bottom of the ninth inning, Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda called upon closer Tom Niedenfuer to pitch. Smith batted left-handed against Niedenfuer with one out. Smith, who had never hit a home run in his previous 3,009 left-handed major league at-bats, pulled an inside fastball down the right-field line for a home run, ending Game 5 in a 3–2 Cardinals victory. Smith said, "I was trying to get an extra-base hit and get into scoring position. Fortunately, I was able to get the ball up."The home run not only prompted broadcaster Jack Buck's "Go crazy folks" play-by-play call, but was also later voted the greatest moment in Busch Stadium history by Cardinals fans.

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 MLB.com 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
