Hardy fans are aplenty at the House that Bud Selig built. American Family Field’s fan-shaped roof is unique and is open for a majority of the season. Make sure you are in your seats when the Sausage Race is run in the middle of the 6th and to sing Roll Out the Barrel during the 7th inning stretch. Milwaukee and Brewers baseball history is honored throughout Miller Park with murals, statues of Robin Yount and Hank Aaron and living legend Bob Uecker in the radio booth.
I met Paul Rodriguez in the Ballpark Stampeders group on Facebook. Paul is a dedicated Milwaukee Brewers season ticket holder and all around nice guy.

May 25, 2003: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Mike and I found a Greyhound bus that arrived in Milwaukee before the 1:05 pm game, but it meant leaving our Chicago Travelodge at 6:00 am. Arriving in Milwaukee at 9:00 am, we had 4 hours to fill before the game, so Mike and I took a walk through downtown Milwaukee. [Read more…]
