Miller Park, the Milwaukee Brewers new home scheduled to open in April,
2001, will be a one-of-a-kind
ballpark for fans around the world to enjoy.
The ballpark will be the only one in North America to feature a
convertible, fan shaped roof guaranteeing that baseball will be played,
even on the most inclement of Wisconsin days.
The roof will feature
seven panels, including five that will move to
cover the fans from the weather elements. Three panels will settle
over the left field side of the ballpark, while two will sit on the
right field side, allowing for the maximum amount of sunshine on
Wisconsin spring and summer days. Each roof panel is the equivalent of
one Bradley Center roof in downtown Milwaukee. The entire
roof will be able to close in 10 minutes.
With a creative and unique split-bowl, seating configuration, fans will
be closer to the action than they have ever been before in
Milwaukee. The four seating levels (the Field Level, the Loge Level,
the Club Level, and the Terrace Level), with approximately 43,000
seats, give fans four great options and also four front rows from which
to choose at Miller Park.
There are 70 suites at Miller Park including 20 Founders Suites located
in the Field Level seating. They will be the best suites in
baseball. There are 50 suites on the Club Level, including several
behind home plate affording
suite holders a view of Brewers action
unparalleled in Milwaukee baseball history. Miller Park will feature
approximately 43,000 seats.
The field dimensions at Miller Park, designed with the input of Hall of
Famer and Brewers legend Robin Yount, are asymmetrical. The
left field line is 342 feet; the left field power alley is 374 feet;
straight-away center field is 400 feet; the right field power alley is
and the right field line is 345 feet. The field will have a natural
grass playing surface.

an exciting theme restaurant, interactive children's areas, an
enormous and enticing novelty store, a beautiful color replay board and
full scoreboard, just to name a few. The Stadium club,
restaurant and novelty store will be open year-round as a part of the
Brewers 'Hot Corner' in the left-field area, which will give fans a
great opportunity to enjoy Miller Park.
Miller Park will also feature, 'Home To Heroes', a series of colorful
murals depicting five great industries of Wisconsin tied to the five
eras of baseball in the state, beginning with the American League
Brewers of 1901 and continuing to the current and future Brewers.
These murals will be displayed throughout Miller Park.

landscaping, which will accentuate the great Wisconsin tradition of
