Major League Baseball’s smallest market is facing new pressure to upgrade its home ballpark.
The Wisconsin legislature needs to approve a plan to finance $448 million in long-term renovations to the Milwaukee Brewers’ American Family Field, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel — or risk losing the club to another city.
Earlier this year, the Brewers detailed the extensive upgrades needed, but league and team sources told Front Office Sports that conversations remain ongoing between the club, league, and local officials — and that such brinkmanship is overblown, especially in contrast with the far more troubled situation between Oakland and the A’s.
