Cubs vs Brewers at Miller Park - Milwaukee. Cubs Win 4-2

My wife and I drove to Milwaukee today to watch the Chicago Cubs play the Milwaukee Brewers.  Cubs won 4-2!

The drive wasn't really that bad... less than 1-1/2 hours from our home.  Because of my handicap placard, we were able to park about 4 rows away from the closest parking spot by the stadium!  Plus, there are escalators moving you to the upper decks of the stadium!

Miller Stadium is really nice, I have to admit.  We really like it and are planning to go see more games up there in the future.  It's less expensive than seeing the Cubs play at Wrigley Field!  But ticket prices are definitely higher when the Brewer play the Cubs than when they play other teams.

We sat in section 415 in the second row.  It's the highest section up in the stadium, but it wasn't that bad really.  We think we will try sitting closer next time.

Because we were so far away, getting closeup photos was not possible.  The photo of Addison Russell at bat is as close as I was able to get with my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens.  The photo of John Lackey on the mound was cropped closer.  Both images were taken with my Nikon D4.  The selfie photo and the stadium photo were taken with an Apple iPhone 6s+.

As I sat in my car getting ready to drive off to go home, a Brewer's fan said to me through my window, "I'll be home in about 5 minutes.  How long will it take you?"  Ok... so he's close by... but we still won today!!  :)
