Decided to report on another topic which is near and dear to many of our hearts--visiting teams' fans.

I had recently read this article about the Brewers attempting to dissuade Cubs fans from attending games at Miller Park since there is such a large contingent of the visiting team's supporters. That's much like Dodger fans in San Diego or several other examples I could use.

Back to the Brewers, they held a pre-sale for all home games hosting the Cubs in Milwaukee in 2019, available to Wisconsin residents only. Of course, there are many ways to get around this, considering that there are Cubs fans who live in Wisconsin, there are casual in-state baseball fans who know they can purchase these and make a nice profit on resales to Cubs fans, etc.

I'll be curious to see the results of this "ticket limitation" experiment.

I am pretty sure that kind of tactic would not work here. I wonder how it goes in Milwaukee.
