Greater St. Louis, Inc. brought together legislative leaders from Missouri and Illinois today for the 2023 Bi-State Softball Showdown, which celebrates the bi-state, bipartisan cooperation that makes the St. Louis metro strong. The game took place on the field at Busch Stadium.

“St. Louis is resurgent, and the work our state legislators do in Jefferson City and Springfield is a key factor in our efforts to move the metro forward,” said GSL CEO Jason Hall. “We are very fortunate that our bi-state, bipartisan delegation works together to drive pro-growth policy in both state legislatures, and we want to take a moment to celebrate their efforts to move our metro forward.”
