If you happened to pass by Busch Stadium early yesterday morning, you might have thought the ballpark was burning to the ground.

By 8:40 a.m. at least a dozen fire trucks and rescue vehicles -- their lights flashing -- idled on a blocked-off section of 7th Street, just west of the stadium.  

So, what was the occasion? A three-alarm fire? A terrorist plot? Disaster training? Nope. Yesterday was "Picture Day," with the department lining up all its newest equipment for inclusion into the memory books.
