I guess we can extrapolate that Miller Park will become American Family Field. Not the worst that could have happened. Just leave the word Insurance out of it.

This is great news! I was hoping insurance would be left off of the Milwaukee ballpark. This seems to indicate that it is.

For everyone wondering why we heard about the AmFam naming rights this year...this was probably why.

When I saw this particular name reveal, my first thought was "ah, getting the masses used to the inevitable."

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Yeah, I guess I'm OK with American Family Field - and I'm sure we'll all shorten it to Am Fam Field. Not nearly in the same ballpark (excuse the pun) as Miller Park, but at least it's not terrible. And I'm sure we all can agree that it's nowhere near as bad as Guaranteed Rate Field.

Shouldn't the focus of this thread be that awesome new facility rather than whatever people call it?

I thought I was by referring to it as an awesome new facility. It looks fantastic.

Maybe if it was Miller Park of Phoenix.

Can't wait to hear back reports on the facility from fans when games start. It sounds phenomenal from the players perspective, so hopefully the fan experience will be top-notch as well. I know a major concern some fans had going into the renovation was that the access to players at Maryvale was unmatched and many were hoping that would be maintained.

I love Spring Training. I will be out there again for the Los Angeles Angels game in Maryvale on March 14th. I will also be attending Brewers games that weekend at Surprise and Camelback Ranch.

Everything about the neighborhood has been well documented but the stadium and experience was solid prior to renovations. I am really looking forward to the upgrades. The larger concourse will be a very welcome addition, especially when you go to places like Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Go Crew!

Ballpark Digest had a nice writeup on the renovations at Maryvale with a few pictures:

I got to see the complex on February 20. I don't know what it was like prior to the renovations, but it sure looked impressive.

I was there today—agreed, the facility is impressive and something the Brewers can be proud of. One complaint—I heard the concessions used to be worse but they are still not good and the beer selection is terrible. There are a number of enticing taquerias in the surrounding neighborhood that I should have tried instead, could have had a whole meal for the price of a brat.
