Brewers: Miller Park sustains ‘minor damage’ after break-in

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers say a man illegally entered Miller Park and caused minor damage to the playing field Tuesday morning.

Brewers officials say the man was apprehended by law enforcement shortly after gaining access to the field. Milwaukee police said a 40-year-old man was arrested in the burglary and noted that the incident occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m.

Police said criminal charges will soon be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.

Both the Brewers and the police said the incident resulted in “minor damage” to Miller Field’s playing surface. The team provided no additional details.

Miller Park has served as the Brewers’ home stadium since 2001. While speaking to the Greater Milwaukee Committee last week, Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said he would prefer that the Brewers hold their preseason workouts in Milwaukee rather than their spring training home in Arizona if Major League Baseball decides to go on with its season.
