Businessman, Major League Baseball Team Owner. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, from 1946 to 1975 he was the President and CEO head of the Anheuser Busch Brewery, which was the largest brewery in the world. He succeeded his older brother Adolphus Busch III as President and CEO, and began using the now-iconic Bud Clydesdale Horse Team as a company logo. An avid sportsman, he became owner of the National League St. Louis Cardinals Major League franchise in 1953, owning it until his death at age 90 in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1984, the Cardinals retired the number 85 in his honor, which was his age at the time and he was posthumously inducted into the Cardinals team Hall of Fame in 2014.
