Late start time means fans will sacrifice sleep

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers face the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the NLDS Tuesday night.
First pitch is 8:37p Central, a tad late considering the game will likely end around midnight.
Will young Brewers fans be able to stay awake for the whole game?
"Wednesday could be a rough day," Dr. Cami Matthews, of Wisconsin Sleep, tells me.
"When you're tired, you don't feel on your 'game,'" Matthews explained. "Younger kids (10 years and younger) will see more effects the next day. The older kids (teenagers) will act sleepy and may not concentrate well in class."
If your child does stay up late, don't fret.
"One night of little sleep isn't a big deal," Matthews said. "But if it is a chronic pattern, that could be a problem."
If the Brewers win Tuesday night, sleep won't be an issue.
