Miller Park sustains service-level flooding

A severe storm in Milwaukee early Friday morning knocked out power at Miller Park and caused what a Brewers official called “moderate” flooding in parts of the ballpark’s service level, including the clubhouses. But the situation should be resolved before Tuesday, when team returns home to host the Twins.

“We’re maybe looking to replace some carpeting in offices and the clubhouses, but the clubhouses were spared the worst of the problems,” said Tyler Barnes, the Brewers vice president of communications who was doubly affected because his own home took on water.

“The field apparently is in good shape,” Barnes said. “We anticipate absolutely no problems at all being ready to play on Tuesday.”

The team’s e-mail system was still down as of 10 a.m. CT and many employees were working from home. Barnes was preparing to head to the ballpark later in the morning to see the situation first-hand.

While stadium crews at Miller Park dried out, the Brewers were in Detroit preparing for the start of a three-game Interleague Series against the Tigers.
