Baseball is back: Brewers Home Opener

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Baseball is back as the gates to Miller Park open Monday for the Brewers home opener.

After opening the season with one of the best records in baseball, the Brewers fold in their home opener handing Milwaukee their first loss of the 2018 season.

Despite the loss, the excitement at the park Monday was off the charts. For many fans, Opening Day is an unofficial holiday. A can’t miss experience they’ve had on the calendar for months and the day began early for some.

Fans filled the parking lot bright and early Monday morning to kick off Opening Day.

CBS 58 spoke with people who were out at Miller Park as early as 7:00 a.m. All day long there were a lot of classic Wisconsin tailgates complete with beer, brats, and sausages. People passed the hours before the game by playing catch, blasting music and grilling out. Most fans we talked to say they feel pretty good about the team this year, especially since they went into their home opener undefeated with three wins under their belt.

“Well to be real honest with you, I am a Brewers fan and some years haven’t been as good as other, but I continue to come because I enjoy sitting there. I enjoy the fans and I watch baseball a lot,” said Brewers fan Richard Natynski.

CBS 58 also caught up with Governor Scott Walker before Monday’s game started. He says he used to go to Opening Day back when he was in college at Marquette.
