California Dreamin': Die-hard Brewers Fans head to LA for Game 3 of NLCS
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Milwaukee Brewers fans are anxious to see the Brewers face the LA Dodgers in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series Monday night, but some die-hard fans think sitting at home or heading to a local bar just isn’t enough.
The Milwaukee Brewers will be playing in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles Monday night. Brewers fan Matt Barth will be heading from Brew Town to Tinseltown in hopes to see a Brewers win right before his eyes.
"I'm going to be going out there in full Brewers gear. We're going to be rooting them on,” Barth said. “It's going to be awesome!”
For Matt Paugel, it was the right time and place because he’ll be in LA for a business trip Monday and just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to cheer on the Brewers thousands of miles away from home.
“I'm excited. I can't wait to hang out in that stadium and cheer on the crew and show those Dodgers fans what Wisconsin people are all about,” Paugel said.
Devoted fans might be dropping some cash to head to the game. Tickets available on StubHub Sunday night ranged from $80-$2,000. And, for a last minute flight, round-trip plane tickets seen on various travel sites leaving from Mitchell International Airport are about $700.
Barth thinks there will be a good amount of blue and gold inside the crowd at Dodger Stadium as Brewers fans cheer their hearts out.
“I've been to stadiums all over the country, Brewers fans can travel well,” Barth said. “I can tell you that so I'm expecting to see a lot of Brewers fans out there.”
