Milwaukee Brewers Tickets
Milwaukee Brewers Tickets
The Milwaukee Brewers, whose named signifies the citys close ties to the brewing industry, appropriately plays in Miller Park, sponsored by the Miller Brewing Company. The Brewers joined Major League Baseball as an American League expansion team in 1969 but moved to the National League in 1998. The teams only appearance in a World Series was during 1982, when the Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in a seven game series. "Hammerin'" Hank Aaron, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, and Rollie Fingers all played for Milwaukee during its various incarnations.
Miller Park, Home to the Milwaukee Brewers
For a beer-themed team, the Milwaukee Brewers have an aptly named stadium which they have called home since 2001. Located just outside downtown Milwaukee, Miller Park is named after the Miller Brewing Company and replaced the now-demolished Milwaukee County Stadium. Miller Park is the only Major League Baseball park that has a convertible roof that is shaped like a fan. The roof can close or open quickly, often in less than 10 minutes. Miller Park features large glass-pane windows where the convertible roof meets the edge of the stadium, helping to let in natural sunlight for the grass field.
Milwaukee Brewers and the National League Central
The Milwaukee Brewers joined the National League Central division in 1998 after spending the 1969 through 1997 seasons in the American League East. In 1982, the Brewers won both the AL East division title and the American League pennant, leading to the team's only World Series appearance. They lost that contest to their current NL Central rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals. In 2008, Milwaukee earned the National League wildcard playoff spot but failed to advance. In 2011, the Brewers won the NL Central Division title and went on to the NL Championship Series, but the Cardinals defeated them in the pennant race.
Milwaukee Brewers 2012 Team Outlook
With Prince Fielder quickly approaching free agency, the Milwaukee Brewers decided to bet the farm on the 2011 season by trading away top prospects for pitchers Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum. These bold moves allowed the Brewers to win the National League Central, but they succumbed to the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series. Now, Prince Fielder has left for a nine-figure contract in Detroit, leaving a gaping hole at first base. Even worse, it was discovered in November that popular outfielder Ryan Braun failed a drug test, which means that Braun is likely to be suspended for 50 games this year. With all of this bad news, the 2012 season could be a rough ride for the Brewers.
