Cardinals close deal on minor league team

Friday, 28 March 2014 10:46 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals now own their top minor-league team.
 
The Cardinals on Friday closed on the purchase of the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds. As part of the deal, the city of Memphis, Tenn., acquires AutoZone Park and will lease the stadium to the Cardinals. Both are buying from Fundamental Advisors LP, the sole bondholder of the Memphis Redbirds Baseball Foundation.
 
Financial terms were not disclosed. Plans for the purchase were first announced late last year.
The Cardinals say the purchase agreement includes a significant investment in AutoZone Park, but did not elaborate.
 
The Memphis franchise has had financial struggles in recent years. The team drew more than 800,000 fans when the stadium opened in 2000, but has drawn fewer than 500,000 in recent seasons.

Clydesdale horses always draw crowds

Friday, 28 March 2014 10:42 Published in Local News
BOONVILLE, Mo. (AP) - The ranch in central Missouri where the famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses are raised is becoming a popular stop for visitors.
 
Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville had 24,000 visitors last year, an increase of 33 percent from 2012. John Soto, supervisor of the ranch, says he expects the numbers to keep climbing.
 
He credits Budweiser's famous Super Bowl ads in part for the interest. And he notes it's the only place in the country that offers a behind-the-scene look at the animals.
 
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that for $10, visitors are able to see horses ranging from foals just a few days old to breeding stallions and pregnant mares, as well the breeding facilities. A VIP tour for groups also is offered.
