Brewers make Marlins feel at home with decorations at Miller Park

Marlins move weekend home series against Brewers to Milwaukee

Marlins Move Weekend Series From Miami To Milwaukee Due To Irma Recovery Efforts

As the result of Hurricane Irma, the Marlins are moving their weekend home series with the Brewers to Miller Park in Milwaukee.

With so much of the region still very much in recovery mode, the Marlins have decided to make a change to their schedule.

Marlins Park escaped major damage from Hurricane Irma and could have hosted the weekend series, but team and MLB officials decided the logistics would be hard given the storm's aftermath. Miami's current road trip is extended to a three-city, 10-game swing, although the Marlins officially will be the "home" team and bat second this weekend.

The two teams will battle on the diamond but likely exchange pleasantries and well wishes after the game.

"The change of venue was made at the request of Major League Baseball and the Marlins, due to the conditions caused by Hurricane Irma", said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger, in a press release. In a statement, the team said that the stadium is ready to play in, but they "realize that all of our employees, as well as our entire community, have other needs that must take priority at this time".

The Houston Astros moved a series to Tampa following Hurricane Harvey while the Rays had a series with the Yankees moved to NY as Hurricane Irma was bearing down on the city.

Count the Miami Marlins among those whose return home is delayed by Hurricane Irma.
