Brewers sell 1.3 million tickets by opening day

The Milwaukee Brewers have already sold 1.3 million tickets for the 2006 season, a 30 percent increase compared with the same point in 2005. Sparked by an increased interest in the team, the Brewers will likely exceed the team's 2005 attendance of 2.2 million, which was the second highest since Miller Park opened in 2001, said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers' executive vice president of business operations. The Brewers finished the 2005 season with its first non-losing season in more than a decade. The team drew more than 45,000 fans for its season opener Monday, the third largest crowd in Miller Park history and the largest for a home opener at Miller Park.
