It was an exciting Monday at Miller Park. The Brewers hosted St. Louis in this year's home opener. 

Fans like Shawn Bosman of Menomonee Falls said attending the Brew Crew's first home game of the year has become a tradition for them. 

"I'm going on about a decade here in a row," Bosman said. 

He said he thinks this year's Brewers team will be fun to watch. 

"I renewed my season tickets. I'm excited to watch the team play," he said. 

Other fans are optimistic too. Mary and Joe Gibowski drove down from the Wausau area to catch Monday's game in person. 

"We love watching the Brewers," Mary Gibowski said. 

"I think they've got a good chance at the playoffs this year - just like last year," she also said. 

Mark Mollet of Slinger said he was enjoying the atmosphere around the ballpark. 

"We lucked out and got pretty decent weather this year, and I love tailgating," Mollet said. "The smell of the grills, the brats, and the beers going. I love it." 

Bosman said he thinks the start of baseball season always brings excitement because it also means warm weather is right around the corner. 

"This is everything - this is what Milwaukee waits through waist-high snow for," Bosman said. "We wait all winter for the summer to start, and this is summer. Summer starts today."
