American Family Fields of Phoenix is tucked within the city limits of Phoenix on 51st Avenue and is the spring training home of the Milwaukee Brewers. Elegantly quaint with its wrought iron fencing and readily distinguishable trellis roof providing abundant shade, the park is a baseball purist's treasure. The outfield lawn is bedecked with trees to provide a pleasant backdrop not only for the game, but for the most famous mascot race of them all, the Klement's Sausage Race.
Most Unique Concessions Item: The Bratcho offers a divinely unique blend of nachos and a bratwurst that is sure to offer a flavorful experience for guests.
Best Known Ballpark Amenity: A family favorite, the lawn seating is intimate, sunny and offers a great view of the game and place to spread out and relax.
Most Distinguishable Stadium Feature: The marquee in front of Gate A is a staple photo opportunity for Brewers fans with its banner distinguishing American Family Fields of Phoenix as the spring training home of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Best Ballpark Game Tradition: In the middle of the sixth inning, the reknowned Klement's Sausage Race takes place. The five racing sausages run from the right field corner to home plate in a battle for sausage supremacy.
Most Interesting Stadium Tidbit: 95% of fans enter through Gate A. So, to avoid long lines, go to the concession stands near home plate or on the third base line as Gate A is along the first base line.
Autographs: Fans are able to get autographs down the right field line as both visiting and home teams go through the tunnel in foul territory in right field.

The Milwaukee Brewers have spent every spring training in Arizona, including when the team was the Seattle Pilots. In 1969, they trained in Tempe, an arrangement which lasted through 1972. This was followed by a move to Sun City from 1973 to 1985, Chandler from 1986 to 1997 and then to American Family Fields of Phoenix in 1998.
