MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Crews at Kelly’s Bleachers on Bluemound Road had a busy Monday. They hosted Brewers and Badgers fans — first for Opening Day, and later for the NCAA Tournament championship game.

“It’s a double-edged sword because it’s going to be busy already. We’ll just have to play it by ear and see. There’s going to be disappointed people because once we’re at capacity, we can’t let anybody into our building. Hopefully (the Badgers) can knock off Duke tomorrow and that would be a fun day,” Patrick Guenther said.

Kelly’s Bleachers had shuttles running to and from the stadium.

The Brewers vs. Rockies Opening Day matchup began at 1:10 p.m.

Unfortunately, the Brewers fell to the Colorado Rockies in their opener, 10-0. Later, though it was a hard-fought battle, the Badgers fell to the Blue Devils 68-63.
