Brewers surpass 2010 ticket sales
MILWAUKEE -- On the same day the two millionth fan passed through the Miller Park turnstiles, the Brewers touted their ticket-sales pace on Wednesday, saying the club had already sold more tickets for 2011 home games that it did for all of 2010.

The team also said it had set a franchise record by selling more than 627,000 group tickets this season, breaking the mark of 623,622 sold in 2008.

"Our fans have demonstrated their tremendous passion for the Milwaukee Brewers and their support has played a key role in providing the best home field advantage in all of baseball," Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger said in a statement. "We still have plenty of good seating options available for remaining home games and encourage fans to plan accordingly."

The Brewers drew 2,776,531 fans to Miller Park in 2010, ranking 11th of the 30 Major League teams. They own baseball's best home winning percentage (.727, thanks to their 40-15 record entering Wednesday) and averaged 36,230 fans through the first 55 games.

The Brewers needed to average 38,746 fans over their final 26 games, including Wednesday's, to top three million fans for the third time in four years.
