Miller Park flooded

Jun 22, 2009, 10:42 AM EST

In the past, when snow, storms and floods have made baseball an
impossible task someplace, Miller Park in Milwaukee has pinch-hit as
the “home” park for the affected team. Now, it seems, it may need a pinch-hitter of its own:

Miller Park sustained significant flooding after a band of severe
storms slammed Milwaukee late Wednesday night and early Thursday
morning, and crews have worked around the clock since then to clean up
the mess and replace damaged carpet, drywall and furniture . . . The
key concern on Sunday afternoon was the electrical system. As the
Brewers were playing the final innings of their 3-2 loss in Detroit,
power was just being restored at Miller Park, substation by substation.

Water rose knee-high in several areas of the ballpark’s service
level, which includes office and storage space for the Brewers,
Sportservice and the sheriff’s department. It was only ankle-deep in
the main areas of the clubhouse, according to a team spokesperson,
sparing the equipment left behind in the players’ lockers . . . “I’d
say it’s functional, but not normal,” Brewers assistant general manager
Gord Ash said. “It’s a big deal, and it’s probably going to be a period
of time before it’s taken care of.”

The immediately affected series is against the Twins. Sense would
dictate that it be shifted to Minnesota. It’s close, it will be empty,
and there’s no chance whatsoever of a rainout. I’m sure some Brewer
fans would complain about losing a couple of home games, but it seems
like it would be well worth it if it gave crews a little more time to
fix all of the damage.
