We were now settled into our seats and with the roof closed and ready for the game to begin. It did and it wasn't too long before the Brewers were down 3-0 in the first. Miami added four more in the third and now the Brewers faced a 7-0 deficit. Just mighty poor playing in all aspects by Milwaukee.
I saw a beer vendor and saw what appeared to be $9 on a button he was wearing. Nine Dollars for a beer! Even if it is a 16 ouncer. I don't think so. I just don't drink at those prices are actually anything much over $3. I can remember writing in my journal back in 1961 after attending an April Cubs game that I couldn't drink at Wrigley Field anymore because they had raised the price of beer to $1.50.
And, then it got hot and muggy in the park. The roof was closed and it seemed that the air conditioner only worked once in awhile A nice blast of cool air would blow by. Making it also uncomfortable was the fact our area was packed elbow to elbow. Too bad they don't have personal fans.
