Milwaukee’s professional baseball team changed leagues in 1998, creating an immediate rivalry with Chicago’s “northsiders” and their passionate yet frustrated fan base.
Each year Chicago fans pour into Milwaukee’s stadium for games between the teams, while Milwaukee fans despise the "flatlanders" but also covet a trip to that ivy-covered ballpark on Addison Street.
Patch is giving baseball fans in both regions the opportunity to turn that passion into a prize with our Pro Baseball Pick ‘Em Contest, in advance of the teams’ three-game series in Milwaukee May 11-13. The winner receives a $100 gift card for pro baseball apparel. Here’s how to play:
