The historic city of Milwaukee is known for its many breweries. This is the source of the “Brew City” nickname and the name of the city’s Major League Baseball team, the Milwaukee Brewers, as well as the name of their stadium. The home of the Milwaukee Brewers since April 2001, Miller Park, named for the Miller Brewing Co., replaced the Milwaukee County Stadium as Milwaukee’s Major League ballpark. ? The $400 million stadium can seat nearly 42,000 fans at a clip, with a history of tens of millions of fans in attendance since opening. The stadium covers 1.2 million square feet on a 265-acre lot. Miller Park occasionally hosts other events, including bowling tournaments, and concerts. Past performers include Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Billy Joel.
During Milwaukee Brewers home games, Miller Park entertains the fans with its many mascots. The Klement’s Sausage Race in the 6th inning is a favorite of children and adult Brewers fans alike. The Sausage Race is a race around the field from the third baseline to the first baseline in which Milwaukee Brewers or Miller Park employees wear seven-foot tall sausage mascot costumes featuring the bratwurst, the Polish, the Italian, the hotdog, and the chorizo. Bernie Brewer, with his own clubhouse above the left field seats, goes down a slide for every Brewers home run accompanied by a center field fireworks display. Get your Brewers tickets and head over to Miller Park for a one-of-a-kind baseball experience.
Miller Park uses a convertible fan-shaped roof that can open or close to accommodate different events in any weather. Weighing 24 million pounds, the roof panels pivot around a fixed structure behind home plate. When closed, the roof allows the stadium temperature to rise up to 30 degrees above the outside temperature; thus, Miller Park accounts for Wisconsin’s inconsistent weather at the start and end of the baseball season. The retractable roof makes the stadium comfortable for Milwaukee Brewers games and events in rain, snow, or cold conditions. ?
