MILWAUKEE - Spring has come anew for 2013 in Milwaukee, at least in the baseball sense.

"The roof is closed, the brats are cooking and the beer is ready to flow," said Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Dayrbeak" about the Milwaukee Brewers beginning their new season Monday, starting arguably the city's biggest annual day-long sports-oriented party.

The Brewers host the Colorado Rockies to begin the 2013 campaign.  Ace pitcher Yovani Gallardo takes to the mound for Milwaukee against Jhoulys Chacin. 

Bob Uecker and Joe Block come on your radio at 12:30 p.m. on Newsradio 620 WTMJ, which will have continuing coverage from 5:00 a.m. until 6:40 p.m. (our Bucks coverage).  TODAY'S TMJ4 is airing Live at Daybreak and Live at Noon with postgame coverage on Live at 4, 4:30, 5, 6 an 10.

The Brewers say fans will be allowed into the parking lots at 10:00 a.m., and inside Miller Park at 11:00 a.m.  Overflow parking will be available at State Fair Park.

Fans are not allowed to bring their own portable toilets, unlike past years.

All fans in attendance will receive magnetic schedules and Brewers rally towels.

The season brings transition, as Milwaukee comes in without starters Zach Greinke and Shawn Marcum who start 2013 in other cities.

However, they come in with the hurler who finished second in the Cy Young Award race in 2012, Kyle Lohse.  He went 16-3 for the St. Louis Cardinals before coming to Milwaukee.

The season also brings in questions about Ryan Braun and the spectre of allegations involving performance-enhancing drugs, though all indications seem to show that Braun successfully has kept up his performance.
