For the first Sunday game of the 1912 season, April 28, the Milwaukee Journal gave readers this information and tips on attending Athletic Park:
  • Game called 2:30 p.m.
  • Gates open at 12:30 p.m.
  • Admission 25 cents, 50 cents, 75 cents and $1.00
  • Entire grandstand, except 500 seats back of catcher, are 50 cents. That section is reserved at 75 cents.
  • Box seats $1.00
  • Right wing of grandstand is in the sun.
  • All bleacher seats are 25 cents and are situated in center field.
  • All entrances are on Chambers and Eighth Streets.
  • Rain checks will be attached to each ticket and time will be saved if the holder tears the rain check off before entering the turnstile.
  • No intoxicating drinks will be sold in the left wing of the grandstand or in the reserved seat section.
  • In all other cities in the American Association women remove their hats. While it is not compulsory, the men behind you will take it as a great favor.
  • Eighth Street cars will take you directly to the entrance. One minute service will be started today.
  • If you don’t mind walking a few blocks you can take a Third Street car or a Milwaukee-Northern car.
