Brewers exec Rick Schlesinger talks stadium name, On Deck event

Milwaukee Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger joined The Crossover to discuss the upcoming Brewers On Deck event and how to handle the news of the naming rights of Miller Park being acquired by American Family Insurance.

On Deck is this Sunday, and Schlesinger notes that the team probably won't make the same splash they did last year by acquiring Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain just before the event, but did mention that Yasmani Grandal will be in attendance.

For the stadium naming rights, Schlesinger says that people can call the stadium whatever they want. Even after 18 years of it being Miller Park, he joked that some of the veteran fans still refer to it as County Stadium.

Also, he discusses the renovated digs for spring training for the Brewers.
