Photo gallery Honoring veterans at the Brew City Battle
The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s student veterans were honored with a flag ceremony during the “Brew City Battle” at American Family Field in Milwaukee on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. The doubleheader event, known as Brew City Battle, is the first time that the Milwaukee Brewers’ stadium has been transformed from baseball diamond into a unique basketball venue. The Badgers men’s basketball team defeated the Stanford Cardinal 60-50; while the women’s team lost to the Kansas State Wildcats 77-63. The event had an announced attendance of 17,927 and included a combination of University of Wisconsin traditions, like “Jump Around,” and Milwaukee Brewers traditions, like the sausage mascot race.
