Definitely getting some tickets for this. Was sad no more cheap weekend series were left(Cubs last one).

Amazing MLB is allowing this, but we have an upper hand having a roof. Last thing they want is rainouts this late in the season in this situation.

So how far are they going to go with this home team/away team at Miller Park? I assume we'll be batting in the top of the inning. Voice inflection for lineup introductions in favor of the Marlins? Sitting in the visitor's clubhouse? Excited animations on the scoreboard for when we strike out or the Marlins make a good play?

Could be some level of hilarity here.

The Marlins should bring their outfield fountain thing with them for this series.

Friday will feel like a home game for the Marlins...only 10k in attendance.

Why are they only allowing so many tickets to be sold?

The true Miami experience...only allowing 5 fans in. Go ahead and call it short notice lack of staffing though. Lol

I'm guessing the Brewers will be in the home clubhouse. I believe that when the Indians and Angels played here in 2007, the Indians were the home team but chose the visitors' clubhouse because the Brewers left some areas of the home clubhouse locked. I assume this situation is similar and therefore it will be to both teams' advantage if the Brewers are in their usual dugout/clubhouse and the Marlins are on the visitors side.

As far as other things like Bernie Brewer, music, PA announcements, etc it will be interesting to see what happens. My guess is that the game will basically be a home game for us from that perspective. We will just be wearing gray instead of white and batting in the top of the inning instead of the bottom.

I would think they wouldn't do Bernie. Limited tickets is so they don't have to fully staff the park; they'll probably keep things minimal. Anyway, the clubhouse is one thing, but if I was the Marlins I wouldn't put up with Brewers celebration stuff.

I thought I heard, when the Brewers TV guys were talking about the Marlins' playing the Yankees at Citi Field, that the league can only relocate games to a neutral park. Obviously that turns out not to be right. Does anybody know what rules or protocols govern in a situation like this?

I love the idea of giving the proceeds to hurricane relief. (The students at my school are doing a chili cook-off next week as a hurricane relief fundraiser, and I'm one of the faculty judges. I am sad that it took horrible hurricanes to realize my lifelong dream of judging a chili cook-off.)

Gregmag, thanks to Scott Tenorman, I don't think I could judge a chili cook off. But good luck to you and a good cause.

My guess is that the fact that the Marlins are basically out of a playoff contention made this choice viable. If they were close to a Wild Card or 1st place in their division, I would think Miller Park wouldn't have been an option.

You guys are looking way to deeply into this. The Marlins are the ones who wanted to play in Milwaukee. This was their idea. As someone else mentioned this will likely be a home game in all honesty. Only difference is when we bat and maybe we end up wearing actual road jerseys. I am sure we will have all our celebrations like normal. If they wanted the most boring depressing experience ever for fans they would have sent us to a neutral site.

Haha that we do, that we do. Maybe they stick the Marlins mascot up on Bernie's slide.

I think they both should be up there. That'd be pretty cool. But you are right, the game is played in Milwaukee. Other than batting first and wearing roadies, it'll be pretty much the same.

I actually wish the Brewers would've had a better jump on this and made this game huge. Sort of like where people call in to bid on things to raise money for whatever it is they raise money for, they could have teamed up with the Marlins and made this one of those games where they had cool things to win from the Marlins and Brewers for a price to donate to the Hurricane stuff.
