Brewers thank fans for support in ’11
“Thank you, fans, for a record-breaking 2011 season!” the message read.
The Brewers set franchise records with 96 wins and 57 home wins on the way to winning the National League Central. They also set a franchise attendance record by drawing 3,071,373 fans to Miller Park, ranking seventh of 30 Major League teams and ahead of big market clubs like the Red Sox, Cubs, Rangers, Dodgers and Mets.
“I don’t know how to put my finger on it, but the players comment about how they love that the stands are always full,” Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger said in September. “This is a park that plays well to our strength — a home run park. But the pitchers are able to pitch well here, I think because they can relax, knowing we’re going to score runs. I think it feeds on itself.”
