A multi-purpose stadium located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Miller Park primarily serves as the home field for Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers.
The field has a retractable roof that can open and close within 10 minutes, as well as a number of other modern amenities to give a contemporary feel to the park.
Miller Park was constructed to replace the Milwaukee Brewers’ old home field of Milwaukee County Stadium which was the home of the Brewers from 1970 to 2000.
The naming rights to the stadium are owned by local brewer, the Miller Brewing Company.
