Miller Park Extras:
Three “Don’t Miss It”s At Miller Park

1) The Construction Workers Statue – During the construction of Miller Park, three construction workers lost their lives in the Big Blue crane accident, when a crane toppled and crashed in windy conditions. The ballpark’s opening was delayed a year as the team recovered and cleaned up the mess from the crane.

Today William R. DeGrave, Jerome Starr, and Jeffrey A. Wischer are memorialized in a statue of their likenesses, which is found near the front entrance. It is fitting that the Brewers recognized that tragic day.


2) The Sausage Race – There are a lot of noisy between-innings promotions during Brewers games, but don’t miss the Klement’s racing sausages in the middle of the sixth inning. In the race five Brewers employees dress up as the Racing Sausages mascots: a hot dog, a brat, a Polish sausage, an Italian sausage and a chorizo, and then race around the foul territory of the ballpark.

Fans love the Racing Sausages—it’s some of the loudest applause you’ll hear throughout the game. You can even get T-shirts for each one. And of course, it’s a reminder that you can get a sausage here.

3) Autograph Alley – Autograph Alley is located near the Third Base Entrance, not far from TGI Friday’s. It is a wall of baseballs signed by the game’s superstars, other celebrities, and people who purchased a ball to sign.

You can spend some time here looking at the signatures, some of which are amusing, or you can go to the Brewers’ website beforehand to find the location of any signed ball you may be looking for. Some big names here include Alice Cooper, Muhammad Ali, Joe DiMaggio and of course Robert Grzeszkiewicz.

I left out some other things I liked—like Helfaer Field outside the ballpark, the tailgating scene, the location where Hank Aaron’s last home run landed, and the Kids Zone. Check them all out; wander around this ballpark. It’s got plenty to amuse you.
