A Trip to Milwaukee-- Part 6: Miller Field and the Sausages

Next, we went to nearny Miller field which has replaced the old County Stadium.  I always liked the old County Stadium and saw many games there when the Milwaukee Brewers were in the American League,  Their 1982 team is still one of my all-time favorites with Molitor, Yount, Cooper, Gantner and Thomas and all the rest.  I still believe they would have beaten the Cardinals in the World Series that year had Rollie Fingers not been injured. All of their losses came after the other Brewer relievers would allow the Cards to come back.

After rthe bus parked, we walked over to the stadium.  Others of our group had brought along tailgating items and stayed out in the parking lot.  We passed by those great Klement Sausage guys who were out on the main walkway greeting game-goers and having photo opportunity.  I love it when they have their "race" around from the left to the right field lines.  Kip took a picture of me with the bratwurst guy and took one of Kip and Susie by him as well.
