A Trip to Milwaukee-- Part 8: Miller Field

The roof of Miller Field was open when we took our seats which e\were good ones, just past third base and about 20 rows back.  Right in line for hard hit foul balls.    At game time I looked up and saw that they were starting to close the roof.  rain had been forecast for tonight so I figured some must be on its way.  That is the way to play baseball.  Outside in nice weather and under a roof for rain or cold.

The Brewers are having another of their many bad years.  That is too bad as they are my third favorite MLB team, behind the Sox #1 and Cubs #2.    They've dropped a long way from the great early 1980s teams when they were in the American League and the True Blue Brew Crew.  Loved it when they had Molitor, Yount, Cooper and Gantner.

Right now, the Brewers are in last place and surely playing like a last place team.  I thought there was going to be a really small crowd, but by game time the place was about 3/4 full of fans.  Fans tend to wear more of the old 1980s logos and jerseys than the new ones.
