The Milwaukee Brewers are feeling good right now and have been since the beginning of the season and especially in the month of September. How have the fans contributed to the current run?
The players are the main reason behind the success of the team without a doubt. But the other key ingredient to a having a successful team, is to have a very energetic fan base to be there to cheer with every run scored and strikeout and the fans in Milwaukee have been known to be a fun-loving bunch.
"“And I have to say: I’ve never seen anything like this town when it comes to people being nice. For real. It’s a stereotype about the Midwest, but it’s true. It’s pretty ridiculous how nice people are in Milwaukee. It’s like you’re a member of everyone’s family or something.”-Christian Yelich"
After Christian Yelich’s article in The Players Tribune, Brewers fans have really stepped up their game. Yelich basically gave a giant pep talk that energized the fan base as everyone has rallied around the Crew and their star player.
Do Brewers’ fans travel well?
With team success, fans will travel great lengths to see their team win not only at home, but also on the road. When a game with our rivals from the North Side appears on the upcoming schedule, Milwaukee Brewers’ fans rally to get there because they know it will become way more than just a normal ball game.
For the last couple of weeks, Crew fans have been out in full force when it came to team support. They made their presence especially known during the series sweep in St. Louis where the clinched a playoff berth, the final home stand against Detroit, and the crucial and thrilling Game 163 at Wrigley Field to determine who the outright National League Central Division champion of 2018 would be.
With the NLCS beginning tomorrow in Milwaukee against the Dodgers, the big factor against the Crew’s favor is that 3-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw takes the mound for L.A.
October in Wisconsin means a closed roof and with that being said that means that the cheers will be louder, the jeers will be deeper and the whole place will be just an absolute “Thunder Dome” with MVP chants for Christian Yelich, “Moose” calls for Mike Moustakas, and applause for when Josh Hader, Jeremy Jeffress or Corbin Burnes enter the game from the bullpen.
