Brewers Tickets Will Be $5.63 Tomorrow

A managerial milestone for Craig Counsell means cheap tickets for Milwaukee Brewers fans.

The Brewers defeated the Washington Nationals on Sunday to give Craig Counsell his 563rd win as the ball club’s skipper, tying him with Phil Garner for most victories in franchise history. Counsell reached the milestone in 110 fewer games.

As an official “cheers” to Counsell’s accomplishment, Miller Lite is offering 5,000 tickets for $5.63 apiece for each game in the June 20-22 series versus the St. Louis Cardinals. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday at 10 a.m. and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis (limit of eight tickets per person). Tickets are expected to go quickly and are available at, at 800-933-7890 or at the American Family Field Box Office.

The Brewers are planning other celebrations surrounding the milestone during the series against the Cardinals. “Craig has set a high bar leading the Brewers to four consecutive post-season appearances and tying the franchise record for wins,” Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger said.

“We greatly appreciate our long-time partner, Molson Coors, for helping fans share in this milestone with a celebratory ticket offer.” Counsell, a Whitefish Bay native, is the longest-tenured manager in the National League and the third-longest in the major leagues. Only the Cleveland Guardians Terry Francona and Tampa Rays Kevin Cash have longer active tenures with their current teams. Counsell has been at the helm of the Brewers since 2015. He is the 19th manager in franchise history.

Counsell resides in Whitefish Bay with his wife and four children. He’s a graduate of Whitefish Bay High School and University of Notre Dame, where he starred on the baseball diamond under head coach Pat Murphy, who currently serves as the Brewers bench coach.
