The Milwaukee Brewers and Mortenson hosted a Topping Out ceremony this morning to commemorate the last beam put in place on the top of Maryvale Baseball Park, the spring training home of the Milwaukee Brewers.
The final beam was signed by representatives of the Brewers, City of Phoenix, Mortenson, and HKS. It was lifted into place on top of what will be the new home clubhouse of the Brewers.
The ceremony recognized the achievement and celebrated a safe project site with zero injuries to date. The practice of a Topping Out ceremony dates back to the ancient Scandinavian religious rite of placing a tree atop a new building to appease the tree-dwelling spirits displaced in construction. Often, the tree is placed with flags and streamers tied to it.
