The Myth of the Offseason
It’s the age-old question we get here as members of the Brewers Front Office:
“What do you do in the offseason?”
They think that just because the play on the field has ended and the players have returned to Arizona, California, Florida, or wherever they call home, that we, too, must be leaving Milwaukee in search of warmer climates. They assume we are taking long vacations, cleaning our offices, and twiddling our thumbs, basically just biding our time until April when the team returns.
Wrong. The popular answer around baseball is: “There is no offseason.” The tarp may be covering the infield for the next five months, but we are always thinking about baseball here at One Brewers Way. Building ticket plans, planning events like Brewers On Deck, writing media guides, selecting and trading players, improving the ballpark–whatever it is–there is action at Miller Park 365 days a year.
Through this blog, we hope to give you a glimpse of what the Brewers organization looks like from the inside out. We hope it will evolve into a source that Brewers fans turn to for up-to-date information as well as a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on with the Club.
We were given the opportunity to write this blog and we were told to run with it.
