ATLANTA -- Brewers fans will have the opportunity to vote online for funds to build the first Miracle League facility in Milwaukee.

A $200,000 grant is at stake as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project, with 15 Major League cities competing in voting through Aug. 17. Votes can be cast at mlb.com or via text by typing "BREWERS" to 76462.
