PACK'S MILWAUKEE FAREWELL COULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR BREWERS
Published December 19, 1994
As the Packers played their final game at Milwaukee County Stadium Sunday, Brewers officials say the "way is clearer now" in their effort to replace the aging stadium with a new, baseball- only facility (Michael Hirsley, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 12/18). ESPN profiled the final game and the circumstances surrounding the team's pull-out. According to Brewers Owner Bud Selig, the construction of a baseball-only facility will make things easier: "It is very difficult to produce for them a dual facility, and them for us [one] that takes care of both teams" ("SportsCenter," 12/16). FLORIDA BOUND? As the Brewers try and rectify their stadium situation at home, the team has given the City of Chandler, AZ an ultimatum: they will move spring training operations to Florida if the city doesn't make a deal to renovate their current spring training home by January 16 (Eric Miller, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 12/17).
