Less Than 100 Seats Remain for Brewers Chance 2 Advance!

Fewer than 100 tickets remain available to purchase for the “Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan Presented by Potawatomi,which begins in less than two weeks on Tuesday, May 6.  The unique ticket promotion – now in its second year – allows fans the chance to upgrade their seats to the next highest ticket category every time the Brewers win during the promotion.

Last season, the Brewers won six of the nine games during the promotion.  Fans that purchased this ticket plan advanced to the Field Outfield Box.

Here’s how the Ticket Plan works:For just $99, you get tickets to nine select Tuesday games at Miller Park, plus the chance to advance all the way to the Field Diamond Box. You start with seats in Bernie’s Terrace for all nine games, but with each Brewers win, you upgrade your seating area. On Tuesday, May 6, you’ll sit in Bernie’s Terrace for the first game of the plan against the Arizona Diamondbacks. If the Crew wins, you will advance to the next seating tier for the following game in the plan.

Every time the Brewers win, you will simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket for a ticket in the next best seating area for only $2. You remain in that seat location until the Brewers win the next game in the plan. If the Brewers don’t win, simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket at no cost for a seat in the same section where you last advanced – no backsliding.

Brewers Community Achievers: John Swanson.

The Brewers Community Achievers Program presented by AllState recognizes residents throughout the state of Wisconsin each month during the season for displaying extraordinary efforts in their community.

All adults and school-aged children throughout the state of Wisconsin are eligible to participate in the program. Fans can nominate their Community Achiever online or pick up a nomination form at the Guest Relations Booth on the Field Level Concourse at Miller Park during the season.

The first honoree of 2014 was recognized on the field prior to tonight’s Brewers vs. Padres game at Miller Park. John Swanson is a teacher working with disabled youth at Lakeland School and has collaborated with the YMCA to start the “Dream Team,” a baseball team for children with all levels of disabilities. Through the Dream Team, children learn about the game of baseball and sportsmanship.

John Swanson

 

Ten years ago, John started with 10 participants and the program has now expanded to 75. He recruits volunteers of all ages to help, as well as seeks local sponsors to support his efforts.  He also recruits other Little League teams to play against the Dream Team. John works tirelessly to make sure that youth with disabilities are giving opportunities to participate in sports.

As a winner of the award, John received four game tickets to tonight’s game, on-field acknowledgement and the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch prior to the game, along with a Brewers Community Achiever certificate and a gift bag filled with Brewers memorabilia.

Thank you, John for making a difference in the community!

Do you know someone who is a Community Achiever?

Perhaps they started a neighborhood clean-up program, volunteered to prepare meals for their elderly neighbors or even performed some feat of heroism. Nominate them today by clicking here.

To celebrate spring’s arrival, the Brewers have added additional elements to their annual Spring Madness celebration to be held at Miller Park, May 13 – 15 as the Pittsburgh Pirates head to town for a three-game series.

The promotion again will feature 50% off select tickets throughout the series. In addition, for all three games, the Brewers will celebrate the “414” with special deals on select concession items. All domestic draft, 16-ounce beers will be $4, small Pepsi products and hot dogs will be $1, and nachos will be $4.

“Spring Madness is always one of our most popular annual promotions, not just because of the ticket savings  but also because it signals that summer is right around the corner,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “With the team’s strong start this year, we thought we would add to the fun with these additional offers on some of our most popular concession items.”

In past years, $1 hot dogs and small Pepsi products have been included in the Spring Madness offerings. The deals on draft beer and nachos are new for 2014.

Bob Uecker Statue to be Dedicated Friday in the “Last Row”

Today we announced details for Friday’s unveiling of the new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park.  Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza, this statue will be in the last row—yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

The statue will pay tribute to the popular Miller Lite “All Stars” ad campaign which featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row.”  In those commercials, Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row—as will this statue.  The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park’s Terrace Level (Section 422).  It will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.

Starting with the Brewers vs. Cubs series at Miller Park this weekend, be sure to stop up, take your photo and tweet it and/or Instagram it using #IMustBeInTheFrontRow and we’ll collect & share our favorites across our social media sites.

The statue will be unveiled for the first time in a ceremony open to special guests and media Friday afternoon (the unveiling ceremony is not open to the public).  Prior to that night’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park, a presentation will be made on the field honoring Uecker and showcasing the statue.

The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza—Hank Aaron, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker.  The statue will be made of bronze, but will also have color effects.

Home Away From Home: The “Hank House” to Debut at Miller Park Today

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” is getting a home at Miller Park.  The “Hank House,” a roomy, one bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling, debuted today as the Crew opens a six-game homestand against the San Diego Padres at 7:10 p.m.

As you can see, the “Hank House” features a mini-slide and the #BallparkPup hashtag.

It will be positioned at “The Point” in centerfield for tonight’s game and as a mobile home, it will move around the ballpark throughout the season.  When Hank is at Miller Park, it will be his home and used for photo opportunities and appearances.

We think he likes it!

What John and Cait Ate: The “Thornburger” from AJ Bombers

The “Thornburger” from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, we’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers and the newest addition: The “Thornburger.”

THE THORNBURGER-$9

Starting tonight for a limited time, AJ Bombers is offering The "Thornburger," a special burger named after Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg

Making its debut on Tuesday, April 15, The “Thornburger” is a special burger named after Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg.

Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg now has a burger named after him--the Thornburger!

It’s a 1/4 lb patty topped with pepperoni, sautéed onions, lettuce, Texas BBQ sauce, Ranch dressing and pepper jack cheese. The appropriately named sandwich is the first of several city and/or player-themed burgers that AJ Bombers plans to offer this season.

He likes it! Hey Tyler!

He likes it! Hey Tyler!

“This may not be the last time I eat one of these,” Tyler said with a grin, as he tucked into the burger, which is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.

Last homestand, AJ Bombers featured the Malted Whoopie Pie Concrete Mixer (for the Pittsburgh Pirates Series) and the Gooey Butter Cake Concrete Mixer (St. Louis Cardinals Series) and they are currently featuring a Chili Chocolate Brownie Custard for the San Diego Padres Series.

We’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items, just like we have been with the ever-popular Double Clutch!

Where To Satisfy Your Craving: Fans can find AJ Bombers on the Field Level, in the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.
