Default Position: Miller Park Features Indoor Baseball

(Photo: County Stadium had lots of bad-weather days, but the Brewers now elect to remove the outside world entirely for most games on the schedule.) On the Brewers’ website the team says it closes Miller Park’s roof unless it’s expected to be above 60 degrees for the duration of the game. Broadcaster Brian Anderson alluded […]

Brewers Continue Nine-Game Road Trip Against Twins, Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers enter the weekend three games into their current nine-game road trip. Currently in last place of the National League Central division, the Brewers need to start piling up some wins to climb back into the playoff race. Milwaukee lost two out of three to the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the […]

Slumping Brewers Still Returning Value With Solid Ticket Prices

Things haven’t gone according to plan for the Milwaukee Brewers, who enter June with the worst record in Major League Baseball. Ryan Braun has rebounded from a slow start to try to ignite the Brew Crew’s offense, but the performance just hasn’t been there from an overall perspective (just 198 runs scored). Milwaukee has also […]

Selig Experience Message: Seeking Corporate Welfare is Heroic

The multimedia Selig Experience opened at Miller Park on Friday, the latest and most attention-demanding measure to perpetually honor the former Brewers team owner and MLB commissioner.  Putting a statue and a plaque outside the stadium were hardly enough – only a permanent shrine with state-of-the-art 3D hologram technology is a fitting tribute to Selig.  […]

Memorial Day Thought: Too Much Easy Patriotism at MLB Games?

Memorial Day is a time when Americans are supposed to honor the sacrifices of the U.S. military.  We all pay our respects differently, and there’s no right or wrong way to express gratitude for fallen soldiers and those who are currently serving.  If you go to a fair number of baseball games, you’ve probably noticed […]

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, […]

Open the Roof, Brewers

I’ve railed against the excessive closing of Miller Park’s roof in the past, and unfortunately I have cause to do so again. I’ll admit it: I just don’t get it. I was reminded recently of a conversation I had with a fellow Brewers fan at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium years ago during which we both […]
