MILWAUKEE (AP) — Miller Park is buzzing with Opening Day activity.

The lights are on, stadium workers are wiping down the seats and Brewers front office staff are chatting with news crews set up inside the park as the team gets ready to open the 2014 regular season at home against the Atlanta Braves.

The parking lots open at 10 a.m. That’s when the Racing Sausages are scheduled to run their customary relay race from the Klement’s plant to deliver the first sausage of the season to Miller Park.

A trio of winter Olympians from the Sochi games will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and Joseph Attanasio, father of Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, will sing the national anthem. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s, but the Brewers plan to keep the retractable roof closed.
