Miller Park One Brewers Way, Milwaukee, WI

Stadium Review
Miller Park first opened on March 30, 2001 when the Milwaukee Brewers hosted the Chicago White Sox in a pre-season game. The Brewers faced the Cincinnati Reds on April 6, 2001 in the first regular season game.

Miller Park hosted the 2002 MLB All-Star Game and the 2008 NLDS. It has also been the host of five neutral site games – three in 2007 and two in 2008. The Cleveland Indians played three “home games” from April 10-12, 2007 when snow forced them to move their series versus the Anaheim Angels. The Houston Astros played two “home games” on September 14-15, 2008 when Hurricane Ike forced two games versus the Chicago Cubs to move.
