Brewers limiting ticket sales for Cubs games to Wisconsin residents
The Milwaukee Brewers don’t want Miller Park filled with Chicago Cubs fans when their NL Central rivals come to town, and they’re taking steps to try to make that happen.
The Brewers announced a presale for tickets to Cubs games open only to Wisconsin residents on Wednesday, with the team’s Twitter account openly admitting that the purpose was to prevent Chicago fans from getting their hands on tickets.
Any claims that this presale is an attempt to prevent Cubs fans from getting Brewers tickets are… well, pretty accurate, actually.

Let’s just say that these comments from Cole Hamels may have played on Milwaukee’s mind when making this decision. They’ll be mocked for it, though, and criticized by the contingent of Brewer fans who do live in Illinois and are shut out from attending these games.
