>>Brewers Muscle Up, Pound 4 HRs In 5-3 Win Over White Sox
(Chicago, IL) — The Milwaukee Brewers showed some muscle with four home runs in a 5-3 exhibition victory over the White Sox Wednesday night. Keston Hiura, Christian Yelich, Ben Gamel and Orlando Arcia all went deep. Adrian Houser started and pitched four-and-two-thirds solid innings. Hiura and Manny Pina each had two hits. The game was stopped after the top of the ninth because both teams were out of pitchers – with seven taking the mound for Milwaukee. The Brewers work out today (Thursday) at Wrigley Field, then open the season there Friday against the Cubs. Slugger Ryan Braun is on the team’s initial 30-man roster and was oh-for-four with three strikeouts in the game against the White Sox.

>>If Packers Fans Are Allowed To Attend Games, They Will Have To Mask Up
(Green Bay, WI) — The crowds at Lambeau Field will be smaller, all fans will have to wear face masks – and, now, the Packers are considering prohibiting tailgating before the games. It may mean very little if the NFL decides not to allow people to attend the games. The Packers are reaching out to season ticket holders to take their temperature. A questionnaire has been mailed letting them choose to “opt-in” or “opt-out” for a chance to buy tickets this year. It doesn’t matter which choice is made – season ticket holders will retain their current status for 2021.
>>Packers: Finances Not Impacted Much By Coronavirus Pandemic
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers say their finances haven’t been impacted much by the coronavirus pandemic. Team President Mark Murphy released financial information Tuesday ahead of the annual shareholders meeting, which will be online this year. Murphy says the Packers are “in good shape” to handle the “uncharted waters.” For the fiscal year ending March 31st the Packers had total revenue of more than 506 million dollars – the first time it had topped the half-billion-dollar mark.
>>Greek Freak: Just Kidding About That “No Place To Practice” Stuff
(Lake Buena Vista, FL) — The stories about Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting around idle while waiting for the NBA season to resume may not have been accurate. Antetokounmpo now admits he had plenty of access to a gym and he took advantage of it. In practice, teammates have said the league’s Most Valuable Player has looked in top form. He will have a chance to show it in the first scrimmage against San Antonio this afternoon at 2:00 p-m. The last time the Milwaukee Bucks played they lost to the Nuggets with their star sidelined by a knee injury. Coach Mike Budenholzer has said Antetokounmpo will play against the Spurs, but he hasn’t said how much – and the six-11 forward’s minutes are expected to be limited until the season resumes against Boston.
