Brewers open at home, look for first season win


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers celebrate the 10th anniversary of Miller Park Monday when they play their home opener before a sold-out crowd.

The Brewer limp home after losing their first three games on the road in Cincinnati.  They'll get a warm welcome home nonetheless.  After all, it's a long season.

Tailgaters will be lighting the charcoal and popping the tops on their beverages when the gates open at mid-morning.

The Racing Sausages kick it off with their run from the Klement's plant where they'll grab a brat and dash to Miller Park.

The Brewers aren't saying who will throw the ceremonial first pitch.  But, a number of players from the world champion Green Bay Packers have tweeted about taking part in the ceremony. Joseph Attanasio, father of principal owner Mark Attanasio, will sing the national anthem, as per tradition.
