AutoZone Park in the heart of downtown is home of the Memphis Redbirds. The name of this Minor League Baseball team hints at their affiliation. They are the Triple-A club for the St. Louis Cardinals. Yet they had a similar name – Memphis Reds – when the team was established in 1877. AutoZone Park was hailed as a stadium worthy of MLB when it opened in 2000 and was named Minor League Ballpark of the Year in 2009.
