MILWAUKEE -

Wind gusts whipping up snow outside the tents of Milwaukee Brewer fans camped outside Miller Park.

The campers were dreaming of baseball weather Friday while they waited for a chance to buy Opening Day tickets on Saturday. And it's the first shot at Brewers individual game tickets for the upcoming season.

The Brewers hold the team's seventh annual "arctic tailgate" Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. The countdown to Opening Day now at 38 days.
