August Anheuser Busch Was Born
March 28, 1899

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, August Anheuser Busch Jr. was the Chairman of the Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc. and may well have been a St. Louis Cardinals fan from childhood; the Cardinals began playing in the National League the same year he was born. After he became the owner of the St. Louis Cardinals, Busch liked to ride into the Busch Memorial stadium behind a team of his brewing company's famous Clydesdale horses. Even if you weren't a St. Louis Cardinals fan, it would have been hard not to cheer at the sight.
