Brewers playoffs: Fans energized after series-opening win

Fans brought the postseason energy that Milwaukee is starting to get used to, the Brewers winning Game 1 of the NL Division Series on Friday, Oct. 8.

American Family Field hit a decibel it has not heard in a long time. The final attendance was more than 40,000.

After a year with no fans cheering, the night was even more special.

"My heart is just racing right now. It’s so fun. It’s just amazing," said fan Madalynn Hamersmeier.

"The atmosphere is electric obviously. Obviously like after the pandemic, nobody has been here. Everybody is ready to explode. We’re going to a world championship. Let’s go," fan Ben Wahrle said.

If the Brewers do win the World Series, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get a ring, too. The Bucks star bought a stake in the organization in what seems like a good year.
