Tickets to the Brewers' home opener April 4 against San Francisco are scarce.

Those who have been shut out in their search can take solace in this fact: technically speaking, that game will be the Brewers' third home game of the spring.

After leaving camp later this month in Arizona, the Brewers will play exhibition games against Kansas City March 28 and 29 at Miller Park.

Tickets for those games, which cost $10, go on sale at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Brewers box office, and Ticketmaster outlets. Parking for the games will cost $8 for general parking and $15 for preferred.

All fans attending the March 28 game, which begins at 7 p.m., will receive a bobblehead from the 1982 reunion line. The following day, the game will begin at 2 p.m. and be preceded by "Brewers On Deck."

On Deck features autograph sessions with players on the team's Opening Day roster, interactive games, clinics and activities for the entire family. Parking lots will open at 9 a.m. and gates to the ballpark open at 10 a.m.

The autograph sessions will begin at 10:30 a.m. and there will be eight different stations where fans will be able to get autographs, including four on the field's warning track, one on each side of the Field Level concourse, and one on each side of the Loge Level concourse. A program will be distributed to all fans in attendance with times and locations for each player's autograph session.

In addition, youngsters will have the opportunity to learn baseball instructions from the pros. The 30-minute clinics will include fundamental lessons provided by Brewers greats Jerry Augustine, Larry Hisle and Ken Sanders. The clinics will begin at 10:30 a.m. along the Field Level concourse in the right field corner.

The day's festivities will also include a Brewers Charities Rummage Sale, featuring Brewers game-worn and game-used equipment such as jerseys, bats, autographed items and a large collection of Brewers paraphernalia. All proceeds from the rummage sale will support the youth recreation and education programs of Brewers Charities. The sale will take place on the Loge Level in the left field corner of the ballpark from 10 a.m. - noon.

Brewers TV announcers Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder will serve as emcees for the event and will interview players and staff, which will be aired on the center field video board.

Concession stands will be open throughout Miller Park and there will be baseball memorabilia on sale and displayed among the vendor booths near the right field corner on the Loge Level. In addition, the Brewers Fan Zone and kiosks throughout the stadium will offer a wide assortment of Brewers merchandise. Fans will also have an opportunity to check out the new Associated Bank Kids Zone and the Brewers Team Store at the Home Plate Gate.

In order to attend Brewers On Deck, fans must purchase a ticket to the game.

"With the great anticipation we all have for the start of the season, it's exciting that we are able to combine On Deck with an exhibition game this year," said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Executive Vice President -- Business Operations. "Brewers On Deck provides an opportunity for fans to meet and interact with players and coaches, and the exhibition games give everyone -- players and fans alike -- the chance to see everything that Miller Park has to offer."
