You can sleep or stretch (or both) in the Brewers’ outfield

 Several colorful camping tents are spread across the outfield grass of a professional baseball stadium as the sun shines through glass paneling.

Just because the Milwaukee Brewers are on the road doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the comforts of their home field. In fact, the team has taken that opportunity the last few years to give fans access that wouldn’t be possible on game day — at least not without getting tackled by stadium security.

This week, the Brewers announced the return of two of those opportunities for 2023: Field of Sweet Dreams and Yoga in the Outfield.

The former has been a big draw for fans, who this year will get their 14th chance to enjoy a sleepover at American Family Field. The slumber party goes down Saturday, July 29, and features a full evening of activities, including:

  • Access to the UScellular Power Playground (i.e., all the kid-friendly activities down the first-base line)
  • Visits from the Racing Sausages and Bernie Brewer
  • A scoreboard watch party for the Brewers’ game vs. Atlanta
  • A scoreboard screening of a family-friendly movie to be named later
  • Dinner from Chick-Fil-A, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks during the movie
  • A special gift, plus a raffle to win Brewers tickets, gear and fan experiences

When things die down for the night, everyone will camp in the outfield grass and awaken to an included breakfast before being sent on their way. If you want to take part, there are some caveats. Guests under 17 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (parent or guardian), there’s a maximum of four minors per adult, and all alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited.

Tickets are on sale now for $150 (18 and older), $130 (13-17), $90 (3-12) or free (2 and under). You can pick those up and find more information on the Brewers website.

If you’re in the mood for something a little more chill, Yoga in the Outfield will take place on two upcoming Saturdays: July 15 and Sept. 9, both at 9:30 a.m. with registration getting started at 9 a.m. The one-hour class features certified trainers from the Wisconsin Athletic Club leading participants of all levels for “a gently modified flow” on the outfield grass.

Besides the instruction, you’ll also get a fitness item from the Brewers and the event’s sponsor, Quartz, as well as light snacks and water. Each class costs $15 and will accept the first 250 people who register. For more information, head over to the event page on the Brewers website.
