Milwaukee County Stadium

Ten years ago on September 28, 2000 the final game was played at Milwaukee County Stadium. The evening was filled with familiar faces from the Milwaukee Braves, Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers. (We have the ceremony on VHS.) That last night as the lights were turned off in the old park, standard by standard, Bob Uecker closed with “…. so-long old friend, and goodnight everybody”. Gregg Hoffmann wrote a book that winter “Down in the Valley” a complete history of the stadium filled with pictures from the first game to the last. We have a program from the final game at County Stadium in the Silent Auction.
