The nine-game road trip begins in San Francisco.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers begin their first west coast trip of the year today, a nine-game, ten-day trip that will take them to different cities in California. First up is San Francisco, as the Brewers open a three-game series against the Giants. Chase Anderson looks to stay hot against former Giants ace Matt Cain. Will the Brewers make it three in a row?

With the Brewers on the west coast this week, playing some late games, we're going to have some fun with the polls. Starting today, we're going to do a "Choose Your Own Adventure" story using the poll questions. The story will be about an experience that you and your friends have at a Brewers game. Based on your selection to each day's question, the story will advance. Some will only have minor effects on the story, while others will radically change what happens. How will your story turn out? Stick around each day and find out. With that, let's kick off the story.


It's a beautiful weekday summer evening, and you and a few friends decide on an impulse to go to the Brewers game today. You leave for the game at 5:30 pm, thinking that will give you enough time to get to the ballpark, get tickets, and get to your seats before first pitch. As usual, traffic in Milwaukee is a little rough, and the highway is backed up for a few miles. You eventually work your way to one of the general parking lots behind home plate, park there, and walk to the gate. By the time you get to the home plate gate, it's 6:40 pm, a little later than you wanted to be there, but still plenty of time before first pitch.

As you stand in line to buy tickets, you and your friends talk about where you want to sit. Since attendance hasn't been too high lately, there should be a wide variety of seats to choose from. While you want to get the best possible seat, there's also a concern about getting seats that are too expensive. If you spend too much on the tickets, you'll have to cut back on any food or drink you get while at the game. Eventually you get to the ticket window, and the salesperson gives you four options on where you could sit. Which do you choose?


What area of the ballpark will you get tickets for?
