ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man who has gained YouTube fame for spectacular stunts will soar over downtown St. Louis Friday evening in full view of 40,000-plus Cardinals fans, but he promises to stay away from the city's most inviting stunt site - the Gateway Arch.
Plans call for Alexander Polli to jump from a plane flying at 4,000 feet near Busch Stadium, about an hour before the Cardinals host the Atlanta Braves. He'll be wearing a wingsuit - an aerodynamic jumpsuit that allows the wearer to soar for long distances before opening a parachute to land.
Spokeswoman Meghan Spork says Polli will do stunts while flying over downtown for about three minutes. She says he won't fly between the legs of the Arch or land on the Arch grounds.
