Parking could be tough, so I’ll also pass along a reminder from the team that overflow parking has been arranged at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Fans may use the 84th Street exit from I-94 where they will be greeted by signage and staff. A $10 fee will cover the vehicle parking and shuttle services are free. Buses, provided by Riteway Bus, will be staged near the U.S. Cellular Gate and will offer service to and from Miller Park before and after the game.
Shuttle services are scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. and will run until approximately 1 1/2 hours after the game. Buses will drop off passengers and pick up after the game on the VA grounds. Fans should follow the path marked “Stadium” which will lead them to the right field gate. Tune to AM 1180 for up to the minute information.
The tarp is being rolled up, players are stretching in the outfield and for now the rains that have drizzled down on San Francisco are holding off. It appears that the Brewers and Giants are going to try to start this game on time. I apologize for not writing a long string of blog posts about the weather situation and why the Giants didn’t schedule a rain day and oh-my-gosh-this-is-so-annoying… I figured I would just wait to see what the weather looked like at game time. Silly me.
As expected, here’s the Brewers lineup:
Rickie Weeks 2B
Corey Hart RF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
J.J. Hardy SS
Mike Cameron CF
Bill Hall 3B
Jason Kendall C
Jeff Suppan RHP
Just wanted to pass along the news that the game time for the Brewers’ season opener in San Francisco was pushed back a bit to allow for Opening Day festivities at AT&T Park. National League Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum is now scheduled to throw his first pitch at 3:25 p.m. CT.
The Brewers’ home opener — April 10 against the Cubs — is unchanged. Braden Looper is scheduled to throw that pitch at 3:05 p.m. CT.
