A Milwaukee resident found a way into Miller Park, home of the Brewers, last week and attempted to write his name in cursive on the field with a stolen tractor, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The team released a statement saying an individual caused "minor damage" to the playing surface.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the damages caused by Keyon A. Lambert were valued at $40,000. According to the criminal complaint, he told the police he attempted this stunt and took the tractor because he had never driven one.
Grounds crew members were present when he got into the stadium via an unlocked door, and say when he realized he was being recorded he "decided to show off."
Lambert was charged with a felony count of criminal damage to property and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He was unsuccessful in writing his name in cursive and instead damaged the pitcher's mound and dug holes in many areas on the field.
Here's the statement from the Brewers:
"At approximately 7 a.m. this morning, an unarmed individual illegally entered Miller Park and gained access to the playing surface. He was apprehended a short time later after causing minor damage to the field. As this involves an ongoing investigation, we unfortunately cannot provide further details at this time."
Miller Park, along with every other MLB stadium, has sat empty this season with the league shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The MLB Players Association and MLB owners are currently in negotiations about a potential 2020 season. .
