2018 has been a very successful season for the Milwaukee Brewers both on and off the field. On the eve of the team’s opener with Los Angeles in the National League Championship Series, Seehafer News spoke with Tyler Barnes, a member of the team’s front-office. Barnes, who is Senior Vice President of Communications and Affiliate Operations, said even though Milwaukee is the smallest market in Major League Baseball, the Brewers were able to average 30 to 40 thousand fans a game or, 2.85 million at home this year.
And, that trend is continuing in the postseason.
Barnes says this Brewer team has “incredible chemistry”.
He went on to discuss how the team has grown over the past two seasons.
The team’s management group has also been very supportive of the squad.
Speaking of Counsell, the team spokesman says he is a “players manager, but holds his players accountable.”
And, former Brewers owner and Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig had the vision to push for a retractable roof at Miller Park.
The roof has also been instrumental to brining large groups from around the state to the ballpark.
Tyler Barnes predicts it’ll be a “very competitive and compelling series, not just for Brewers And Dodgers fans, but for those watching all over the world. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.” Barnes spoke about why he feels the Crew have an advantage.
