WELCOME TO MILLER PARK
This is a picture of Bernie Brewers Slide. Bernie would slide down this slide every time the Brewers hit a home run. Make sure you check out more of my photos. Continue reading
WELCOME TO MILLER PARK
The very first stop of our baseball trip was Miller Park. I was ten when we went. When we went it was 2011. I rember seeing the stadium for the very first time and there was something about it that I loved. Outside the stadium there was tailgating everywhere and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was car after car and grill after grill. When we walked into Miller Park I had a big smile on my face and something felt right, that something clicked. I knew I was home, I knew baseball was my love and passion in life. The field is really nice and it was made for baseball. The field has the Brewers symbol on it behind home plate. We were sitting near the Brewers dugout and I got my first ball. The tickets are not too expensive at Miller Park and it was a great experience. It was really fun because we got to interact with the players and watch them up close. I also got to meet Bernie Brewer the Brewers loyal mascot. Bernie was cool and he is dressed like a man with a brewer’s shirt and a yellow mustache . Bernie also slides down the slide when the Brewers hit a home run, which was a lot between Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder. We also got to see the famous sausage race which was during the 4th inning. My favorite was the hot dog and he was the one I rooted for. I only rooted for the hotdog because he is the traditional baseball food and I didn’t really like any of them at the time. Hotdog won once when I was in Milwaukee. Since I was only ten at the time I rember wanting to see what the kids zone was like and so did Ethan. We walked to it the middle of the game. We thought it was pretty cool. In the kids zone you could race Corey Hart I beat him once after three tries. Ethan and I also biked and raced sausages. I won against Ethan in that. I don’t also rember much from Miller Park because I was only ten. Although one thing I do rember is that it was a good stadium and that they had good fans. The atmosphere was great and lots of the fans seemed passionate or a little drunk from the tailgating. In Miller Park as far as food goes it good but I was not a huge foodie so I didn’t have a care for it. Although there is the five-sausage meal that Miller Park is famous for. Miller Park has a special place in my heart and it was a great first stadium. Also if your in Milwaukee and headed to Miller Park make sure to check out Kopps frozen custard, it is awesome. If I were to rate Miller Park out of ten I would probably be an eight. I think overall Miller Park is worth your time but it is not my favorite park but then again I cannot just choose one favorite.
This blog page is shared by Haley Smilow and my father Marc Smilow who started my love of baseball. I was born in New York City and I am a Yankees fan but love the game of baseball. My family started a mission in 2011 to visit all 30 ball parks over the next 4 years. In August of 2011 we headed out on our trip visiting, Miller Park, US Cellular Field, Wrigley, Busch Stadium, Kauffman Stadium, and Target Field. This summer we are back at it again. If you want to follow us on our journey check out our other website at Home Field Advantage. (But please understand my father can never seem to get the site finished but it is a great start.) My blog page is dedicated to my player interviews, and behind the scenes of the MLB from a kids prospective. HOPE YOU ENJOY IT…. HALEY
