    Looks like a charming suburban neighborhood on the other side of the expressway.
    How would you like have had to walk the 10 rows of cars in the biting Milwaukee January after a Packers game? Or hoofing it WAYYY the heck back to your car during a rain delay?

    I gotta hand it to those places (Dodger Stadium, Anaheim, Kaufmann) that still force their fans to suffer through the elements.

    I always loved going to games at County. A classic old ballpark. I caught a foul ball off the bat of Rich Becker there. I was always envious (downright jealous) as a Twins fan that fans in Wisconsin had it so good compared to us Twins fans being cooped up in that sterile dome. Needless to say I can't wait until next year and a return to real baseball under the sun and stars and on grass.

    Miller Park is also a very nice ballpark. I've been there once with my wife and two boys and we had a great time. It is a very comfortable and family friendly place to take in a ballgame, which as a parent I really appreciate.

    But it was sad to see County go. It reminded me of the old Met in Bloomington as well as Wrigley.

    no excuse for throwing a bat that hit someone in the stands!

    The pennant is for the 1957 team, this was probably taken at the '57 World Series.

    You're right. For some reason I was thinking the pennant was from 1959.

    Nope, it has Bob "Hurricane" Hazle's name on it, which makes it 57.

    How come the Sentry Beer Barrel did not find its way into Miller Park?? Cool little piece of contextual ballpark charm.
    Definition of a homerun: When the baseball gets hit to a DISTANCE that the fielder cannot get it into homeplate before the batter rounds the bases.

    Associated Press -- Citi Field's smaller dimensions helped opponents more than the New York Mets.
    Thanks Sandy Alderson.

    I know I've posted this before, but it's from a very similar angle in 1970:

    I love when the brewers underline their M with the wheet on their hat!
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.
