We saw a lot of street musicians during our baseball road trip across America, but Busch Stadium produced something we hadn’t seen: four men playing the same instrument.

These competing saxophone players presented a clear opportunity to satisfy our curiosity. What inspires a street musician to perform for baseball fans? How much do they make? What’s their story?

Each of the 30 ballparks we visited had a distinct personality, and the saxophone players we spoke to helped tell the story of Busch Stadium, as well as highlight the rhythm and blues scene of St. Louis.
