Tuesday night in Milwaukee wasn’t just another baseball game for one Upper Peninsula native.
Adam Hamari umpired his first ever Major League Baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers, filling in for another umpire.
Hamari was the second base umpire at Miller Park on Tuesday. He worked with Jeff Kellogg, a MLB umpire who is also from Michigan. Hamari usually umpires games at the Triple-A level.
Milwaukee won the game 9-3 over Chicago.
