The Brewers have already sold a million tickets

Leave a comment

I mentioned this morning that Brewers fans were some of the better fans I’ve seen — a point some of you have disputed in the comments.  Fair enough, as my assessment of them is based on anecdotal “man, I’m sure having fun at this ballgame with all these Brewers fans” stuff. By some more objective measures they may not stack up.  Of course, by one objective measure they certainly do:

The Milwaukee Brewers have already reached 1 million tickets sold for the 2010 season. The
franchise reached the milestone on Monday. It was the second-earliest
date the club has reached that milestone. Last season, the Brewers
reached 1 million sold on Jan. 19. The Brewers hit 1 million despite the fact that the franchise has not yet begun group or single-game sales.

Last year the Brewers ranked ninth in overall attendance.  Every single team ahead of them plays in a larger MSA than Milwaukee, most of them much larger (come to think of it, I believe Milwaukee is the smallest MSA in all of Major League Baseball).  We can argue about who’s more knowledgeable, but I think Milwaukee may have them all beat for enthusiasm.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers fainted at Kirby Yates‘ charity event last night.

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
