My 2008 worldwide baseball tour continued on this afternoon at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
For a place that reminded me a lot of the Astrodome, I really enjoyed it.
As I have stated elsewhere today, with each new park I go to it makes me realize even more the colossal amount of mediocrity that was put into the design and construction of Comerica Park. On my all-time list, this would rank only behind PNC Park and The Ballpark In Arlington.
The only thing I didn't like about the park were the goofy dimensions of the outfield wall. I guess when they were drawing it up on paper they let Michael J. Fox have the pen.
The brats were as great as you would expect them to be and I got cheese fries served in a mini Brewers batting helmet. It's quite possible the helmet would be tastier than the fries. But I'm not going there.
I picked up the standard schwag I've been accumulating this season: a scorecard, program, yearbook, 2008 Topps team sets of both the Brewers and the Cardinals (more on this later in the week), a pocket schedule, and a fan guide to the park. I've had to go out and get a plastic tub to hold all of the stuff I have accumulated this season. It was baseball card giveaway day too, so I've got a little bobo pack of cards with Jason Kendall on the front. Whoo.
The Cards won 5-3 in a game I won't remember five things about this time next week. I've already forgotten who won the sausage race, and I was paying careful attention not to miss it.
Collector of cardboard, vintage 80's music, and fitted Tigers caps that no longer fit. Back in Tennessee again, by way of Arkansas, California, Florida, Spain, Florida again, Michigan, Maine, Tennessee, North Carolina, Tennessee again, Mississippi, Tennessee again, Illinois, Florida again, Tennessee again, Florida again, California again, and finally Tennessee (again). Winner of the 2020 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and some day third baseman for the Harry Chiti All-Stars. Ladies and Gentlemen, it's me!
