Busch Stadium Bars Red Sox Fan from Cardinals Game Because of Face Paint

Dustin Glastetter wasn't allowed at the Cardinals game with his face looking like this.
Dustin Glastetter is a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan with a dirty little secret: he also loves the Boston Red Sox.

A life-long resident of Missouri, Glastetter, 32, goes to more than 25 Cardinals games a year and can rattle off the team's stats and history with ease. He's not a rich guy, but he'll happily cough up the big bucks for a seat in the all-inclusive green seats near home plate just to be as close to the action as possible.

"The Cardinals are my No. 1 team -- unless it's Boston," he tells Daily RFT. His admiration for the franchise turned into full-fledged fandom when Boston drafted two of his buddies. "When they're in town, I'm a Red Sox fan."

That's a tough loyalty for Cards fans to swallow, especially after losing the World Series to the Sox twice in the last ten years. Earlier this week, a survey of baseball fans showed the Red Sox are the team Missouri hates the most. (Take that, Cubs.)

So when Major League Baseball scheduled Boston to play in St. Louis on August 6, Glastetter knew he had to turn up in full force. Just to be safe, he called the Cardinals front office to make sure he'd be allowed to cover his face in paint and wear the five-dollar, spiky blue wig he's owned for years. They said as long as he wasn't wearing a costume or mask, he'd be fine.

But he wasn't fine. After one glance at his Boston makeup, officials told Glastetter that he wouldn't step foot in Busch Stadium as long as his face was painted, he says.

"This is honestly the first place I've ever been to that has said this isn't allowed," Glastetter says. "I live here. If I'd have been in Cardinals colors, it would have been completely different. I have no doubt in my mind."

Busch Stadium officials tell Daily RFT that Glastetter was not singled out for his face paint because he is a Red Sox fan, but since rules about costumes are up to staff discretion, they can't be "100 percent consistent." (Officials say they'll update Daily RFT after an investigation, and we'll update this story when we hear back.)

Remember when they wouldn't let the guy with the storm trooper helmet in on star wars night? THOSE ARE THE RULES. GET OVER IT.

Amen. And if rooting against your home team ain't hipster, I don't know what is.

Your comment is so ridiculous I think you're a Cards fan with a fake account trying to make Cubs fans look like complete dumbasses. Either way, mission accomplished.

Because they rather report about hippster bullshit.

I am sure the guy was acting badly. Cards welcome visiting fans unless they misbehave.

Why does the Riverfront Times hate their home town baseball team? While it is perfectly reasonable to share this story, it seems that the RFT only writes negative stories about the Cardinals. And I do not buy for one second that this was because he is a Red Sox fan. I go to plenty of games and never see fans in full face paint. And I have only heard about positive experiences from out of town fans. IN FACT, on multiple occasion at Busch Stadium, I have seen a Cardinals fan told to remove shirts that read "Cubs Suck."

Fuck that guy and fuck the Red Sox. Go move to Boston, you little baby

Guy sounds like a toolbag. "My #1 team except for this other team".. But nonetheless not letting him in for that is ridiculous if true.

Michael Simpson

The fans had nothing to do with it. So, go worry about that pathetic team they call the Cubs.

Well, sir, if it's not bullshit, then I'm sure the bulk of the peeps from Cardinal nation think it is because their not like that... It is a bit unbelievable in St. Louis... It's not like you walked in with a Cubs jersey or something...

I'm sure the Cardinls will miss a fan so loyal that he comes to Busch Stadium to root for the other team. Because a guy dressed so obnoxiously certainly wouldn't do anything to disrupt people actually rooting for the home team. I just don't get what painting your face like an out of work clown does to enhance the fan experience.

It shouldnt matter if your there to support the Cards or whoever,Thats like saying a person who wears face paint to a Rams game supporting another team cant come in even though hes from St Louis

Paul Glandt

Thats ridiculous,and shameful. Someone from the Cardinals needs to step up and make this tight

Dustin Glastetter lol. I swore that was you but I wasn't sure until now..

I don't think reporting the truth is being a bitch about it, so it doesn't happen to someone else. Freedom of speech though so you are welcome to your opinion

Actually sir I was a perfect upstanding citizen/gentleman. I spend most of my afternoon taking pictures with children.

Have to love the comments of such upstanding , uneducated people.. Way to stay classy sir.

If you would bother to read the entire story you would notice I was not referring to cardinals fans. I'm referring to the cardinals head offices and the people that work at Busch Stadium. The fans were great as always. I spent most of my afternoon taking pictures with fans and little children

You do realize two of his friends play for boston in the farm system right? I'm good friends with him, and he's a big time cards fan. He was really looking forward to watching his two favorite teams square off. I'm pretty ticked to hear they wouldn't just let him be a fan of the other team.
