MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Home Plate Milwaukee County Stadium

MILWAUKEE COUNTY STADIUM WAS REALLY A GREAT PLACE. SURROUNDED BY A HUGE PARKING LOT, SOMETHING I HADN'T SEEN SINCE SHEA, THE STADIUM SITS AWAITING TAILGATERS ON A RAINY MONDAY NIGHT IN MILWAUKEE.
YES, HERE ON THE EAST COAST WE THINK WE TAILGATE, IN MILWAUKEE, THEY TAILGATE. THERE IS A PIT IN THE PARKING LOT JUST FOR THIS PURPOSE. AND WITH THE MILLER BREWERY RIGHT UP THE STREET, THE BEER IS AS FRESH AS IT IS COLD.

Where Miller Park now stands

UPON ENTERING THE STADIUM, THE SMELL OF BAKING BREAD HITS YOU, WHY IT'S THE COUNTY STADIUM BAKERY, SERVING ROLLS AND PASTRIES. BUT, I'M HERE FOR A BALLGAME AND IN MILWAUKEE, YOU HAVE A BRAT. I WALK TO THE COUNTER AND ASK FOR A BRAT, WITH COUNTY STADIUM SAUCE, OF COURSE. A LARGE WOMAN BEHIND THE COUNTER ASKS IN A VERY SERIOUS TONE "YOU WANT BEER WITH THIS??"
"YES I DO" I REPLIED AND STARTED TO EAT THE MOST AMAZING BALLPARK FOOD SINCE COMISKEY. I'VE HAD GOOD BALLPARK FOOD BEFORE BUT NOTHING THAT COMPARES TO THE FOOD IN MAILWAUKEE.
 
THE OTHER FUN FEATURE IN MILWAUKEE HAPPENS WHEN A HOME RUN IS HIT. AT THAT TIME, BERNIE BREWER SLIDES OUT OF HIS HOUSE AND INTO A MUG OF BEER. IT'S FUN.

A rainy night in Milwaukee - County Stadium

OF THE 27 BALLPARKS I'VE VISITED, I RANK COUNTY STADIUM 16TH BEHIND SHEA BUT AHEAD OF THE NEW PLACE, MILLER PARK. IT WAS THE FIRST STADIUM I VISITED THAT DIDN'T SING "TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME" DURING THE 7TH INNING, THIS IS MILWAUKEE, BREW TOWN! HERE THEY SING "ROLL OUT THE BARRELL" AT COUNTY STADIUM, YOU'LL HAVE A BARRELL OF FUN.

Add some secret sauce to the brats in Milwaukee
