Growing up in Wisconsin (and I still live here) my family and I would go to Brewer games at least once a year. We'd go to Milwaukee County Stadium which an okay stadium.
In 2001, it was replaced with Miller Park. Now, THAT is a baseball stadium! I took my father to a few games there before he passed in 2010 and he couldn't believe how massive it was-- neither could I! Miller Park is such a gorgeous stadium. It even has the only fan-shaped convertible roof that can open in about 10 minutes!
Plus, even though it's an indoor stadium, the glass roof and windows allow for natural light to come in and for real grass to grow. Playing on real grass is always preferable to fake turf. My dad and I enjoyed getting there early to watch the players warm up. We'd grab a few beers to start us off and sit back and relax.
My dad always wanted a hot dog and popcorn and I always wanted ice cream and peanuts, but we always shared with each other. I love those memories with him on the benches.
He wasn't a big talker, but we never really had to when we were watching a game together. Just being there was enough.

I definitely have this T-shirt.

The cleverest logo out there.
The Brewer's mascot!

The racing wieners are the best!
