MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Things will look different during the Milwaukee Brewers' home opener against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday.
The stadium will be nearly empty as the two teams play at 1:10 p.m. The MLB has implemented the changes to keep players and fans safe during the pandemic.
Many of the familiar traditions will still take place, like the Johnsonville Famous Racing Sausages. The race will air during each game in the middle of the sixth inning on the Miller Park video board and on Brewers social media channels.
There are new traditions too.
Presented by Miller Lite, the Ceremonial First Cheers will substitute for the tradition of the First Pitch all season long. On the video board in center field prior to each game, some of the Crew’s favorite alumni and special guests will send their best wishes by raising a glass and delivering an inspirational message to get the game rolling.
