SEEN AND HEARD AT MILLER PARK

MILWAUKEE — There is a sign in the visitors’ clubhouse at Miller Park that spells out, in no uncertain terms, what will happen to players who try to access the giant slide in left field that Bernie Brewer rides when Milwaukee hits a home run. Trespassers will be prosecuted, it reads — and if that wasn’t enough, the offending club’s general manager will be notified. Has this been a problem? “It was last year,” one clubhouse attendant said.
