About Brewers vs. Pirates
Brewers vs Pirates Tickets
The Milwaukee Brewers are one of the few teams in baseball history that has actually moved from one league to another. When they shifted from the American League to the National League in 1998, the Brew Crew had to establish new rivalries with their new NL Central brethren. It’s not always to create animosity out of thin air, but slowly but surely, familiarity has led to disdain between the Brewers and most of their NL Central rivals, including the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Brewers vs Pirates
It took a while for things to heat up between the Brewers and Pirates, most likely because both teams struggle to contend for division crowns. But things eventually started to take off. Oddly enough, it started in 2003 when Pittsburgh’s Randall Simon gently swung a bat during Milwaukee’s famous Sausage Race in between innings. Simon would eventually be suspended and arrested for the incident.
A few years later, there was a spark between the lines when Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun complained accused Jeff Karstens of hitting him on purpose. Later in the season, Karstens was hit by Milwaukee’s Chris Smith, prompting a bases-clearing brawl that helped to further ignite the Brewers-Pirates rivalry.
The rivalry has even extended to stadiums, as the Brewers and Pirates opened new stadiums in the same year. In 2001, the Pirates moved into PNC Park, a masterpiece of a ballpark that sits adjacent to the three rivers that run through Pittsburgh and offers magnificent views of the city’s skyline. That was the same year the Brewers opened Miller Park, which is known for a number of charming quirks that can’t be found in other ballparks, including the aforementioned Sausage Race.
