Cardinals nation and the city of St. Louis is preparing to host Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday, after an up and down season ending with a memorable and somewhat unexpected run through the National League. Like how the Cardinals fans did not know what to expect at the start of this playoff run, the city does not know what to expect from the growing Occupy St. Louis movement. KPLR on the city's concerns:
"The city is buzzing about the Cardinals and the World Series. It's great for business and morale and our image. It's hard to believe we're actually here, but, here we are. The Occupy St. Louis protesters are still in Kiener Plaza."
The Daily Mail writes that police are concerned about a ‘lone wolf’ causing problems at the Busch Stadium which can hold over 50,000 fans.
It is unclear how the protesters will greet the millionaire ballplayers, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden who will all be in attendance Wednesday. On Friday protesters were friendly to people going to the Cardinals' baseball game. The St. Louis Beacon reports that many of the red-adorned onlookers were offered fliers with the headline "Go Cardinals! From the 99 percent."
The World Series opener against the Texas Rangers will honor military veterans.
