Brewers to Implement new bag Policy for 2020 at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Fox 6) – The Milwaukee Brewers announced a new bag policy that will be implemented with the first game of the 2020 season.

According to the Brewers, fans will be allowed only single-compartment (i.e. tote) bags, purses, clutch purses, soft-sided cooler bags, clear bags, drawstring bags, diaper bags and medically-necessary items will be allowed into Miller Park (maximum size of 16”x16”x8”).

“The Milwaukee Brewers are committed to ensuring a best-in-class fan experience at Miller Park, and with that the safety of our fans is our highest priority,” said Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “Major League Baseball has mandated a thorough screening process of all fans entering its thirty stadiums, and our goal is to make this process as efficient as possible. This new policy is consistent with what many teams have implemented this year, and with large crowds at Miller Park for most games, it’s important that we streamline our process. The elimination of multi-compartment bags will significantly improve the efficiency of the screening process, which will allow fans to quickly and safely enter Miller Park in time for first pitch.”

The news release says that fans may continue to bring single-compartment bags, soft-sided coolers and clear bags without obscured interior pockets, but multi-compartment backpacks, bags and purses will not longer be permitted.

Backpacks purchased at Miller Park will be allowed on the date of purchase only.

“We have been encouraging fans this season to leave their bags at home, when possible, and break down the tailgate party a little early to lessen the flood of fans heading to the gates at game time,” Schlesinger said. “This practice will help fans become accustomed to the new policy that will take effect in 2020 and ensure an efficient screening process on entry.”
