Braves' Freddie Freeman calls Miller Park 'bad-lit Little League field'

Despite his complaints, Freeman has found success at the plate against the Brewers.

Freddie Freeman isn't particularly fond of Miller Park.

The Braves first baseman criticized the Brewers' ballpark Saturday before the team's 11-3 win at Milwaukee, citing lighting problems across the field that hinder his vision.

"I think it's a bad-lit Little League field," Freeman said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I can't see anything here."

Freeman went on to describe another distortion due to fireworks set off at the stadium before the Brewers’ first inning, adding he's relieved the series is almost over.

“I mean, I’ve had maybe one or two good series here out of six,” Freeman said. “But I can hardly see the ball. … And they shot off those fireworks and the fog just got trapped in there, it was hard to see. I even asked all their guys, I said I don’t know how you guys play in here. I would not be good here.

“I’m just glad it’s three games and out. I don’t see the ball well, at all. I don’t understand that [lighting problem]. Arizona’s [lighting in retractable dome] is great. I feel like Little League fields are lit better than this. Obviously they have no problem because their guys are hitting. I guess you get used to it. Our lights at SunTrust [Park] are awesome. Turner Field was a little dark."

Despite his complaints, Freeman has hit .391 with three home runs and six RBIs dating back just over two seasons in Milwaukee.
