ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) It’s fitting that the St. Louis Cardinals are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of Busch Stadium III all season long in 2016. On Thursday night, Brandon Moss did something that will be remembered for quite some time.
Moss took a pitch from Kansas City Royals pitcher Chris Young in the bottom of the fourth inning and deposited deep into the right field seats. The Cardinals announced the blast traveled 477 feet, making it the longest ball hit at the stadium since it opened in 2006.
