The best seating options in the shade at Busch Stadium will be either on the second tier of the stadium and along the 3rd base side, or at the back of the 100 sections between third base and the left field foul pole. The Redbird Club seats on the third base side (sections 253-257) will be a great option in the back rows (opt for rows 8 and higher) as they will be out of the sun and also give you access to the climate controlled Redbird Club lounge, where you can go to watch the game through the glass in the event it gets too hot. Other good options can be found in the last rows of sections 160-163 (the back of sections 160 is one of the best for shade). The last 5 rows in these sections are rows 24-28, which is what we recommend for staying out of the sun as they will have better protection from the overhanging seating deck above.
