The Spring Training home of the Crew will have a brand new look in 2019. In November of last year, the Phoenix City Council voted in favor of a plan to renovate Maryvale Baseball Park, which has served as the Spring Training home of the Milwaukee Brewers since 1998. The plan keeps the Club in Maryvale through at least the year 2042, the second-longest commitment in the Cactus League.
Construction began in late March and will be completed by the start of 2019 Spring Training.
The Brewers are investing over $60 million in the construction phase of the program, and have assumed operation and maintenance (as well as related costs) of the facility. The city of Phoenix will allocate $2 million each year for the next five years for renovations, and the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority will contribute approximately $5.7 million.
The 2019 season marks the 22nd spring for the Brewers at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Home games are scheduled to begin at 1:05 p.m. local time (AZ). The schedule consists of a total of 31 games (15 at home/16 road games).
Information regarding ticket prices, on-sale dates as well as the broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date. Fans can visit Brewers.com/spring for additional information.
Please note that games and times are subject to change.
