With the Miami area still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Irma, there was a question of whether or not Marlins park would be ready to host games this weekend, with a series against the Brewers on the schedule. Today, we got an answer about the status of those games:
This weekend's series vs. the Marlins has been moved to Miller Park: https://t.co/9RydH7IVzd— Milwaukee Brewers (@Brewers) September 13, 2017
It’s a major change to move this series to Miller Park, especially with the playoff implications that the games could have, with the Brewers gaining three “home” games. While Marlins Park is in good shape and able to host games, it’s not in the best interests of the area to host those games right now. In addition, while other parks may have been open to use this weekend, holding the games in Milwaukee (where a retractable roof is available) will guarantee that the games are played. The Marlins also released a statement in regards to moving the games to Miller Park:
The Brewers also released details on tickets for this series. They will go on sale tomorrow morning, though quantities will be limited due to having limited time to prep for this series. Only 10,000 field level tickets will be available for Friday’s game, with 23,000 field & loge level tickets available for each of Saturday and Sunday. Field Diamond Tickets will be $20, Field Infield Tickets $15, and all other tickets $10. Parking will also be available for $10, with only general admission parking available.
For these games, the Brewers will be the designated road team, and the Marlins will be the home team. That means the Brewers will bat first and the Marlins last (so no chance of a Brewers walk off here).
