MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers are giving Wisconsin residents first crack at tickets for home games against the Chicago Cubs.
The Brewers hope to draw more of their own fans when they face their NL Central rivals.
The Brewers say fans must have a valid Wisconsin address to buy tickets from Friday through Feb. 15 for any of the 10 games at Miller Park against the Cubs. The limit is eight tickets.
Cubs fans tend to fill Miller Park when Chicago visits Milwaukee. Miller is about 90 miles north of Wrigley Field.
The Brewers hope to challenge the Cubs this year after finishing second in the division in 2017.
"It's not that we dislike Cubs fans, per se. We just really prefer Brewers fans," the Brewers posted on Twitter.
