Over Memorial Day weekend, we took a family trip up to Milwaukee for our first visit to Miller Park. You can see a panoramic shot from our upper deck seats above. We didn’t explore the park much. Thanks to a weekend lugging around our 10 year-old and his cousin, we were a bit exhausted.
The park was nice, but it left me feeling the same way as I did at the Houston Astros’ Minute Maid Park: oddly disconcerted. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but something feels off. I’m guessing it’s that the stadiums are built with retractable roofs, and thus are fully enclosed. It doesn’t feel right to play baseball indoors.
I do look forward to going back sometime, though. Next time, maybe we’ll be resting at the hotel instead of during the baseball game.
