The Milwaukee Milkmen open their American Association schedule tonight on the road in St. Paul. The home opener at the Ballpark Commons in Routine Field in Franklin is set for June 24.
Milkmen games are going to be a lot of fun as the team will offer a number of great promotions. One of them will be Boom With a Beat nights (fireworks synched to theme music).
There are seven Boom with a Beat Nights scheduled, each featuring fireworks and a wide range of musical genres sure to be a hit with all ages. They are: Home Opener Fanfare (June 24), 50 Years of Led Zeppelin (June 27), Woodstock 50th Anniversary with 3D fireworks (July 12), Live Polka (July 27), Country Night (August 9), 80’s Hair Rock (August 23), and Fan’s Choice (August 31).
Can you imagine?
Most of the events are on Friday nights.
Surely this will send apoplectic Ballpark Commons opponents into orbit. I’m talking about the ultra-NIMBY crowd that shows up at Franklin Common Council meetings to moan and groan and whine. They’re rude, arrogant, and totally disrespectful. You can just sense the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
“Insufferable earth-shattering noise.”
“That loud music.”
“Bright lights. Make it stop!”
“Out of control traffic.”
“How would you like it if it was near your house?”
I bet they’re an absolute riot at parties.
Personally, I can’t wait.
UPDATE: The Milkmen won their opening game, 5-4 in 13 innings.
