Brewers to open gates at AmFam Field 2 hours ahead of 1st pitch on Saturday home games

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Brewers fans will get to be inside American Family Field two hours before the first pitch every Saturday home game, the team announced Tuesday, April 18.

Prior to the change, gates opened 90 minutes before first pitch for all home games. The Brewers say this will allow fans additional time when arriving and entering American Family Field on major promotional giveaway dates.

The change starts Saturday, April 22 when the Brewers take on the Boston Red Sox at 6:10 p.m. 

“We are listening to our fans and want to provide the smoothest experience entering American Family Field,” said Brewers President – Business Operations, Rick Schlesinger. “We often see longer wait times on Saturdays for fans looking to enter the ballpark, especially when we have our biggest promotional giveaways. We have ten of these giveaways scheduled for Saturdays this year. The extra 30 minutes will make accessing American Family Field easier for everyone.”

April 22, the first 30,000 ticketed fans will receive a Yelich “Yeli” Tumbler. On Saturday, April 29, the first 30,000 fans will receive a long-sleeve hooded shirt featuring Barrelman, courtesy of Uscellular®.

Parking lots times will remain the same, opening three hours prior to first pitch. For all other home games, Sunday through Friday, gates times will remain the same, opening 90 minutes prior to the scheduled start of a game. See for more info.
