CONCESSIONS

Just like at Brewers games, there will be many concession stands open for fans to purchase food and beverage.

FAN SCREENING

New for 2015, in accordance with MLB-wide policy, all fans will be required to go through metal detector screening via walkthrough and/or handheld detectors, prior to being granted access to Miller Park. To help expedite the process and minimize delays, the Milwaukee Brewers will implement Express lanes for guests that are entering the ballpark without a bag. Fans will be asked to remove cell phones, cameras, and other large metal objects prior to entering, but they will not be required to remove shoes, wallets, coins, or belts. Guests are also encouraged to take prohibited items back to their car. Items left at the gate are not the responsibility of the Milwaukee Brewers. Please see “Prohibited Items” for an updated list of prohibited items at Miller Park. If you have any questions regarding the screening process please call Guest Relations at (414) 902-4900.

Gates to the ballpark will open at 6:30 PM. The match is scheduled to start at 8 PM.

Catch Miller Park’s “Bucks on the Pond” Episode!

If you’ll recall, a couple of weeks ago, I wrote that MLB.com’s hit game show, “Bucks on the Pond,” powered by Ford, was slated to visit Miller Park.

“Bucks,” hosted by Jeremy Brisiel, has been to more than half of all Major League ballparks giving fans a chance to walk away with some cash by interacting with MLB.com’s studio through the magic of technology in conjunction with game action inside.

Well, today, that segment that was filmed at Miller Park on Sunday, June 9 is live on MLB.com. Tune in to check out how your fellow Brewers fans (and blog readers!) fared in the latest episode:

I also encourage you to check out Mark Newman of MLB.com’s story about these fans.

Cheers!
