The Brewers unveiled their schedule of 32 Spring Training games on Monday, a slate capped by a pair of exhibitions against the Tigers at Miller Park on April 2-3.
Ticket information for those games will be released at a later date, the team said, but seats for the 30 games in Arizona go on sale Monday, Dec. 7. That schedule includes a pair of “home” games at Maryvale Baseball Park against the Cubs (March 12 and 31) plus a pair of games against the Cactus League-newcomer Cincinnati Reds, on March 7 at Maryvale and on March 17 in Goodyear, Ariz., where the Reds and Indians share a facility that opened last spring.
The Brewers’ spring opener is March 4 against the Giants in Scottsdale and the Maryvale Baseball Park opener is two days later, when the Giants visit.
Tickets to Maryvale games are available in four seating areas: Field Box ($21), Infield Reserved ($16), Outfield Reserved ($13) and Lawn Seating ($8). Tickets go on sale at Brewers.com and via telephone on Dec. 7, and the Maryvale box office will begin on-site sales Feb. 8.
Spring Training season tickets are also available and can be obtained by calling the Brewers ticket office at (414) 902-4000.
Brewers pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report for the start of 2010 Spring Training on Feb. 20 and will participate in their first formal workout the next day. Position players are required to report by Feb. 26, and the team’s first full-squad workout will take place Feb. 27.
