    Just got back from my main baseball trip of the year, to Milwaukee!

    Saturday we went up to Appleton to see the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Single-A affiliate of the Brewers. This was a very nice stadium for Single-A, easily comparable to the AAA stadiums I have been to, and was able to get a scorecard, soda cup, and ice cream helmet (first time I have see a helmet below the AAA level! - of course, I have not been to a AA yet :). I bought a team ball at their Team Shop, as I wasn't expecting such nice swag. The Eric Sogard bobblehead was not an official giveaway; I won it at one of those 'spin-the-wheel and win-a-prize' things. It took 6 spins, and at $1/spin it was more than worth it LOL. Actually, it was a leftover from a 2018 giveaway (the Timber Rattlers give out 11 bobbleheads a year! Incredible!).

    On Sunday, we went to see the Milwaukee Brewers. This stadium was on my bucket list for a while! Three days of brats, cheese curds, beer, and baseball! Heaven! Got the usual: scorecard, soda cup, ice cream helmet. Interestingly, Miller Park does not have souvenir beer cups?!? The official giveaway was a Christian Yelich bobblehead, commemorating his 2018 MVP and Silver Slugger awards (notice the bat is silver). Back in 2014, I was in Miami watching the Braves play the Marlins. I leaned over to my friend and said, you watch, this Yelich kid is going to be something. Four years later, he wins the NL MVP!

    This thread is strangely inspirational probably a good thing I don’t get to, too many Major League cities too often and my minor league city visitation is minimal. Division I College towns however I’m there often probably a good thing the mid week games start wile I’m in that town conducting business.

    Well thanks to this thread lastnight at the OKC Dodgers game I dropped $12 on dippin dots in helmets then as we were leaving when the game was over my son looks down and there is a clean mini helmet laying under a seat. Oh well 3 helmets can’t be a bad thing.

    Hahaha, nice @Crosscheck

    I just got home from a work trip to San Francisco. The Giants were gone (been there twice anyway) but Oakland was home and it was a new team/stadium for me!

    Personally I don't know why the Oakland Coliseum gets such a bad rep. Maybe people are spoiled on fancy new stadiums. It's just a classic, older stadium. The views were good, the food was good, good beer selection, and the fans were awesome!

    Got all the usual swag: scorecard, beer and soda cups, and ice cream helmet. AND, they had a giveaway, a Matt Olson bobblehead commemorating his 2018 Gold Glove at first base. It was the 'second part' to an earlier bobblehead this year, their third baseman Matt Chapman, who got a Gold Glove also in 2018. Apparently the two figures' bases interlock.
