About Miller Park Seating Chart 2017

Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Miller Park is the home ballpark of the Major Baseball League’s Milwaukee Brewers. For more than 30 years, The Brewers have played in the County Stadium before it was replaced by Miller Park. Naming rights was purchased by Miller Brewing Company for $40 million and is good until 2020.

Bud Selig, owner of the team, proposed in the 1980s for a new ballpark to be built to help generate more revenues that Country Stadium could not. It was only in December 1995 that the Brewers revealed their plans for a new ballpark. The official groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 9, 1996 and was launched in 2001. Milwaukee Brewers’ first game on Miller Park was played against Cincinnati Reds.

Construction
Miller is one of the biggest ballpark construction projects ever in Wisconsin. The project costs $290 million and funds come from 0.1% sales tax. While construction of Miller Park was ongoing, fans watched games at Country Stadium. It was supposed to be finished by April 2000, however, a horrible crane accident killed three construction workers on July 14, 1999. The gigantic Lampson Transi-lift crane 3, used to build the roof, accidentally collapsed while a 400-ton roof portion was lifted on a windy condition. The ballpark was opened to the public in 2001.

Features and Amenities
This stadium boasts of an imposing structure with its façade consisting of arched windows, red brick and clock by the main entrance. It features its special retractable roof with panels that opens and closes at the same time in a sweeping manner. The seven roof panels weigh 12,000 tons and has an impressive is shaped like a fan. It’s 175 ft high above the field and opens or closes in 10 minutes.

Miller Park doesn’t have air conditioning system but it can heat up the ballpark 30 degrees warmer than the temperature outside, enabling games to be played in any weather conditions.

In 2006 season, two LED scoreboards, designed and manufactured by Daktronics, were added to replace the original manually-operated out-of-town scoreboards. They also added a picnic area at the right field corner. This area can accommodate 75 people and serves as a place to leisurely watch the game close to the right fielder. It was first known as Mercedes-Benz Field Haus but was changed to AirTran Airways Landing Zone in 2009. In early 2008, the team added a strikeout counter on the second deck of the right field bleachers which flashes a letter “K” when a Brewers’ pitcher makes a strikeout. It also records the strikeout statistics of the strikeouts made by the team.

The ballpark’s seating capacity is 42,000 that include the four main grandstand level which extends from homeplate to the foul poles while the second, third and fourth decks extends in the left centerfield. On the upper deck terrace behind the homeplate, one can find the Ueker Seats, named after Bob Uecker, a remarkable Brewers broadcaster and costs $1 due to the obstructed view provided by the roof pivot.
Other interesting amenities in Miller Park are: children’s area, open air patios and Brewers Hall of Fame. Fans can enjoy delicious snacks and other food items at T.G.I Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill.
