MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Brewers Opening Day is upon us! The Milwaukee Brewers host the Atlanta Braves on Monday, March 31st at Miller Park. Miller Park is ready -- and fans are making last-minute preparations ahead of the big day.

Just when you think you had everything ready to go -- you realize you need a place to park at Miller Park.

"We neglected to get them sooner -- so last-minute trip to Miller Park to grab our parking passes," Erica Lagerman said.

Erica and Chris Lagerman had to stand in a line on Sunday, March 30th. They say they're pumped for Monday.

"Opening Day is an event in Milwaukee," Chris Lagerman said.

Opening Day is that much more special for the Lagermans. In addition to celebrating the kick off to the Brewers 2014 season -- the Lagermans will be marking their 11th wedding anniversary!

"This is part of the weekend, with celebration and activities," Erica Lagerman said.

The Team Store at Miller Park was busy on Sunday -- as fans looked to snatch up some merchandise ahead of Opening Day.

Of course, Hank items are big sellers this season! Hank the dog has become the Brewers unofficial mascot, after he was discovered at Maryvale Baseball Park during Brewers Spring Training.

Sue and John Lister were browsing for baseball gear on Sunday.

"I'm excited. I'm excited for a brand new season. I am very hopeful -- and hopefully we'll get to come out and get to some games ourselves," the Listers said.

Tom Hollister will celebrate his birthday on Opening Day -- and he says he's hoping for a Brewers win!

"We've got a real pitching staff this year. We've got a couple of position battles. Hoping the fans take Braun back and has a good year with Braun and team is looking good in Spring Training," Hollister said.

The parking lots at Miller Park open up at 10:00 a.m. Monday! The game begins at 1:10 p.m.
