A few weeks ago on Live at Daybreak, Meteorologist Brian Gotter said it was his wish to push the button that opens the roof at Miller Park. A few hours later, the Brewers called and said they could make that wish come true, making him the first non-certified operator to push the button.
It's a part of Miller Park most people never get to see, until now.
Brian Gotter got exclusive access and is giving us a look at the high-tech secrets of the famous retractable roof.
The Miller Park roof is made up of five steel panels, covering 350,000 square feet, and weighing more than 24 million pounds. Moving at only a half mile per hour, it takes 10 minutes to completely open or close.
Mike Brockman is the roof supervisor for the Southeastern Wisconsin Professional Baseball District. We'll call him "The Roof Guy."
"I have been working at Miller Park since 1997 and up on the roof since 2001," he said. "This is my baby."
