Teams that have played here[edit]

In addition, two American League clubs have played "home away from home" games in Milwaukee. The Chicago White Sox played a series of Sunday home games in Milwaukee in 1968 and 1969. In 2007, the Cleveland Indians hosted a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Miller Park due to continuous snow-outs at Jacobs Field. In September 2008, the Houston Astros, who were in the National League at the time, transferred a series against the Chicago Cubs to Miller Park because of Hurricane Ike.
