MILWAUKEE — Brewers manager Craig Counsell is happy to see a new American Family Field funding plan released by state lawmakers.
“Absolutely,” Counsell told Wisconsin’s Morning News on Tuesday. “I think everybody wants the same thing. Sometimes it takes a while to get there. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction.”
A well maintained stadium means more fans in attendance, the skipper said.
“I do think the venue [and the roof], brings fans to the park,” he explained. “[Fans] knowing there’s going to be a game every day, that’s pretty important.”
“That’s what players love. Players love the fan atmosphere in the park.”
