Cardinals Announce Construction Company for New Stadium

St. Louis, MO – Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction Group will build the Cardinals' new stadium.

The team made the announcement yesterday, citing the company's experience with building eight of the last eleven big-league ballparks.

None of the other contractors under consideration was St. Louis-based, but Cardinals President Mark Lamping says sub-contractors will do much of the work, which will let St. Louis companies participate.

Other ballparks Hunt Construction has been involved with include:

Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati
Comerica Park in Detroit
the Philadelphia Phillies' ballpark in Philadelphia
Pac-Bell Ballpark in San Francisco
Jacobs Field in Cleveland.
