In 1953, Lou Perini moved his National League baseball club from Boston to Milwaukee. The Braves became the first major league ball club to change cities in half a century. Perini’s decision to move the Braves to Wisconsin rested on three factors: attendance in Boston, in competition with the Red Sox, was sparse; Fred Miller, president of the brewery that produced Miller High Life, provided Perini moral support and advertising revenue; and newly-built Milwaukee County Stadium, which offered parking for nearly 10,000 cars, was ready to receive a big-league tenant. County Stadium was the first major league ballpark built with lights and the first paid for entirely with public funds. The Braves reached the pinnacle of their sport in 1957, polishing off Casey Stengel’s New York Yankees to capture the World Series, bringing the championship to “Bushville,” which Milwaukee legend suggests was the sobriquet applied to the city by the Yankees. In 1958 the Braves repeated as pennant winners but fell to the Yankees in the World Series, four games to three. As attendance declined, Perini sold the Braves in November 1962 to a group of investors from Chicago who moved them to Atlanta in 1966.
