Miller Park to host Minor League game on June 19

PHOENIX -- Wily Peralta's eyes widened when he was asked about the first time he pitched at Miller Park. It was 2009, when Peralta started for the Class A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in an official Midwest League game.

That tradition will continue in 2015 when the Timber Rattlers and Beloit Snappers (an A's affiliate) meet in Milwaukee on Friday, June 19. Tickets went on sale Wednesday morning at brewers.com/timberrattlers.

"It was such a good experience," said Peralta, who pitched at Miller Park again in 2010 as part of a Minor League showcase. "At the Minor League parks you're used to seeing 10,000 seats, maybe less. Now you get there and it's almost 50,000 seats and it's huge.

"That's pretty cool. They walk you around before the game and let you see the whole stadium. It was a long day, but it was fun."

Ticket prices are $10 for Field Diamond Box seats and $5 for all other seat locations. Parking is $5.

The game will once again be a home game for Beloit, with Wisconsin as the visiting team. It will be the fourth time these two teams meet at Miller Park, with Beloit 3-0 so far.

"The annual game at Miller Park is a great showcase of the prospects with the Timber Rattlers and always a day our fans and players look forward to," said Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav. "As an organization, we appreciate this opportunity the Brewers provide and we thank the Beloit Snappers for their willingness to relocate one of their home games to Miller Park."

Besides Peralta, other current Brewers who have played a Minor League game at Miller Park include Khris Davis, Scooter Gennett and Jim Henderson.
