As a pit stop from the team's annual Winter Tour around Wisconsin, four members of the Milwaukee Brewers stopped by Lambeau Field Wednesday for a behind-the-scenes look at the Packers' newly renovated stadium.
Accompanied by Brewers director of community relations Leonard Peace, pitchers Chris Capuano and Wayne Franklin, infielder Bill Hall and rookie of the year runner-up outfielder Scott Podsednik saw first hand the Packers' training facilities, locker room, the Lambeau Field Atrium and the frozen tundra itself.
"It's an incredible place," said Podsednik. "It's nice to see behind-the-scenes how these guys go about preparing for a football game, to see the meeting rooms, the lounging rooms and the training rooms. It's first class all the way."
Having recently relocated from Milwaukee's County Stadium to the new Miller Park in 2001, the Brewers also are enjoying first class amenities at their new facility.
"This place is amazing," Peace said of Lambeau Field. "It's the same feeling I got when we walked through the new Miller Park. I'm sure that the visiting teams -- like our visiting teams think it's great to come to Miller Park -- I'm sure the Packers get the same reaction.
"It helps to have the right kind of equipment and the right kind of facilities for these world class athletes to train with. You have to do it right and you have to do it first class and the Packers have obviously done that."
In all, the Brewers' Winter Tour will include 18 stops around Wisconsin in six days, concluding Saturday, Jan. 24.
