Brewers series against Marlins this weekend moved to Miller Park

For those who can't get enough of the Brewers' current playoff push – and that should be all of us – bonus baseball is headed to Milwaukee this weekend, as the Brew Crew's three-game series against the Miami Marlins has been moved to Miller Park.

"The change of venue was made at the request of Major League Baseball and the Marlins, due to the conditions caused by Hurricane Irma," said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger, in a press release. "We will be ready to host this weekend and are working to put all of the logistics in order. With limited capacity, we strongly encourage fans to purchase their tickets in advance, especially for the Friday game."

While the circumstances for the decision are of course unfortunate, the move means three extra chances for Brewers fans to catch a game at Miller Park before the season wraps up – and three extra home games for the Brew Crew's playoff push. The Brewers will still play the role of the road team during the three games, batting first each inning, but it's still at the team's home stadium in front of assumably hometown fans – and the Brewers are .548 this season at Miller Park, as opposed to just .500 on the road.

Friday's game will play ball starting at 7:10 p.m., Saturday at 6:10 p.m. and Sunday at 1:10 p.m. Tickets – limited to eight per person, per game – to all three games will go on sale beginning Thursday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m., at Brewers.com/Marlins, the Brewers box office or by calling 414-902-4000.

There are three levels of tickets: $20 for field diamond box seats, $15 for field infield box seats and $10 for all other seating areas – which will be limited due to the brief preparation time for staffing and other gameday needs. Friday's game, for instance, will be limited to exclusively about 10,000 field level seats, while Saturday and Sunday's games will open up into the loge level and around 23,000 tickets.

As for tailgating, all parking will be $10, with the lots opening three hours before the game. The gates will then open 90 minutes before first pitch.
