In early April, 1966, Milwaukee County Stadium sat silent for the first time since 1953. It was a quiet time in Milwaukee baseball history – and certainly no April Fools’ Day joke. The field didn’t need any special attention, stadium workers weren’t hired for the season, and concessions weren’t purchased. The Braves skipped town after the 1965 season and there would be no professional baseball played in the Cream City for the first time in 80 years.
A portion of the blog post here previously may be published as content in my Milwaukee Brewers historical book. For this reason the post has been taken down. This page remains in place so links posted to here on various social media sites remain active.
Details on the book publisher and a release date will be posted here in 2017. Thank you for your patience!
