hopefully not, but tomorrow may be the last game ever at miller park.

That's a guarantee, isn't it? The playoffs won't be at home parks.


The opening round will, but only for top 4 seeds, and we aren’t gonna be one.

Missed that. Thought the whole playoff was in the bubble.

First looks of the signage unveiled today. https://www.tmj4.com/sports/baseball/mi ... -look-like

The scoreboard looks OK but the outside marquee looks wrong. This is what I was worried about, that space was built for miller park and fit perfectly, with all of the empty space, its going to take some time to get used to that.

The gold always looked great with the green/brick exterior. Was it gold before due to the gold in the old uniforms or because of Miller? Sad to see that go...it doesn’t look bad, but the gold on green was a better combo.

Hard to really complain though seeing as American Family left out insurance and at least went with our teams color scheme.

I think it looks nice at night. Daytime looks a little weird.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

So how long does it have to be there before people stop calling it Miller Park? I'm not sure it will ever stick with me, but I still call Pluto a planet...

The name will change again in about 5 years like almost all the corporate named stadiums do these days so don't bother getting used to it.

The deal is for 15 years...so no, probably won't change in 5 years.

But it'll seem like 5 years.

Unless American Family decides to do a corporate rebrand or gets acquired by a competitor. Happens all the time. CenturyLink Field just got changed to Lumen Field the other day.

The deal is actually 10 years and then another 5 if the Brewers extend their lease for another 5 years. So get ready for new stadium talk.

It will probably become American Family Field at Miller Park. Double dip and name both the field and the park....

I’m hoping that Gruber can somehow swing the next naming rights. Might finally help the poor guy get some business.

One Call That's All! Park

And the stadium name doesn't go on the front. Just a massive picture of Gruber.

The length of the deals mean nothing. Corporate sponsored stadium names change all the time.

I will be ringing in the new year tomorrow night with some Miller Genuine Drafts. I'll pour out the first sip for my Miller Park.

I think it will always be Miller Park to me!

The logo doesn't look horrible, but it sure does look a lot more "corporate" than before.
