BrewersMaybe the Brewers have it all wrong. Yes, Bud Selig took advantage of the Seattle Pilots’ woes, pulled them away from the Pacific Northwest, and filled the void in Milwaukee after the Braves left for Atlanta. But, it may be current owner Mark Attanasio that has truly brought Major League Baseball back to he Brewers. Why?

At today’s “Arctic Tailgate” held at Miller Park, the Brewers sold slightly more than 95,000 tickets in the first six hours of the event. The Brewers reports that the number represents the third-most Brewers tickets ever sold in a single day.

In addition, the Club announced that a total of four games have already sold out of individual game tickets. This marks just the second time in team history that a regular season game other than Opening Day has sold out on the first day of availability.

“Opening Day is fast approaching, and we want to thank the fans who once again have given us terrific momentum in ensuring a great environment at Miller Park all season long,” said Brewers Executive Vice President – Business Operations Rick Schlesinger.

Most fans were interested in purchasing tickets to Opening Day, but the Brewers report that availability was limited to standing room, obstructed and single tickets only.

“As people continue to purchase Season Seat plans, the available tickets for Opening Day do not come close to meeting the demand,” Schlesinger said.

Games that no longer have been sold out for single game buyers include (standing room only, single seats and obstructed view may remain):

April 5 versus the Rockies

April 10 versus the Cardinals

April 24 versus the Cubs

May 15 versus the Phillies

The top five single-day sales totals for the Brewers have all occurred on the first day of individual game sales (listed below):

#1        2009 – 104,000 sold

#2        200898,000 sold

#3        201095,000 sold

#4        2006 94,000 sold

#5        2005 90,000 sold
