Watch: An MLB Stadium Converted to Host College Basketball

Logo 97260427

Everything from domed football stadiums to floating aircraft carriers have accommodated college basketball, and this Friday, American Family Field, home of MLB's Milwaukee Brewers, will welcome a University of Wisconsin basketball double-header.

In what is being billed as the Brew City Battle, both the Badgers women's and men's teams will travel the 80 miles east to play on a temporary court stretching across AmFam's infield, with the women hosting Kansas State at 3:30 p.m. and the men playing Stanford at 6:30. Tickets range in price from $19 club-level seats to $179 courtside seats that include complementary food and open bar. The Brewers have even set aside a section for UW students.

Here's a "quick" look at how the ballpark was converted from baseball to basketball:
