Because every successful sports team in the late 1980s made a music video, St. Louis made this video to try linking winning St. Louis Cardinals team with economic development in the city of St. Louis.  In spite of the new construction highlighted in the video, the city was still vulnerable to the same urban flight that plagued many American cities in the Eighties, losing over 60k residents between 1980 and 1990 census.
