In 1969, Seattle was granted an expansion club in the American League, but the Pilots took off after one season and landed here in Milwaukee, renaming themselves the Brewers after the long-standing minor league club and the tradition of beer-making in the city.
The park was primarily configured for baseball, but was adaptable for football. For many years, the Green Bay Packers came down to Milwaukee to play one or two games at County Stadium.
Construction began following the 1997 season on Miller Park, County Stadium’s replacement. However, a tragic 1999 accident involving a crane that toppled in a windstorm postponed the opening of the new facility, and the Brewers, who slid over to the National League for 1998, extended their stay at County Stadium through 2000.
