Attendance? Rick Schlesinger, the team’s chief operating officer, says the team will hit 3 million and more when the regular season ends. It would be the third time since 2008 that the team reached 3 million and marks a significant achievement for any franchise in what has become a challenging economic year.
“Candidly, the team is playing well and we don’t have the ticket inventory,” Schlesinger said. “We would like the ability to increase seating capacity on some days. But we will hit 3 million.”
As I write this the Brewers have one of the 5 best won-loss records in baseball, and I can only hope all those butts in the seats at Miller Park will help fuel the team through the playoffs….and into the World Series.
