Photographs from the St. Louis Cardinals home opener at Busch Stadium on Monday, April 12, 2010.

Pep rallies were a big part of the day.

Tailgaters were out in force.

The ubiquitous scalp… er… I mean ticket buyer/sellers.

An early-arriving couple happily wait for the gates to open.

Busch Stadium was ready to go.

Of course, even the tulips are red.

The gates opened at 1:15 P.M.

"Bunting" was more prevalent outside than on the field.

The Stan Musial statue awaits just outside the gate.

A representative of the next generation of Cardinals fans is ready.

This couple was first to their seats on a beautiful 79 degree day.

Horses of different varieties: Clydedale and Carp.

The Clydedales thunder by.

A pair of Hall of Famers: Whitey and Stan.

Mark McGwire awaits his turn.
