Speaking Saturday before the Braves’ 11-3 win, Freeman was critical of the stadium.
“I think it’s a bad-lit Little League field,” Freeman said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I can’t see anything here.”
Despite his negative opinion, Freeman has found success in Milwaukee, hitting .391 (9-for-23) with three home runs and six RBIs over the past two seasons. That apparently hasn’t affected his viewpoint on Miller Park.
“I’m just glad it’s three games and out. I don’t see the ball well, at all,” Freeman said. “I don’t understand that [lighting problem]. Arizona’s [lighting in a 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. …
“It just seems like I can never barrel balls up here [at Miller Park] consistently. It’s like seeing dark balls coming in.”
The Braves don’t have another series on the regular-season schedule at Miller Park in 2017.
