Who has Spring Fever!?
Spring Training is easily one of my favorite things about working for the Brewers. I look forward to traveling to Phoenix every February. Everything about it is fantastic: the weather (usually 80 degrees and sunny), the optimism (everyone is in first place), the laid back atmosphere (fans can get up close with the players and games are played in intimate ballparks) and the fans (a great mix of people of all ages and from all over the country).
Spring Training is a great baseball experience for the avid fan all the way down to the newest baseball fan. If you are a Brewers fan who has never been to Spring Training, it should definitely be on your list of things to do.
The Brewers and Brewers Enterprises today announced an awesome opportunity for Brewers fans to visit Spring Training 2010 in Phoenix and cheer on the Brew Crew. The first ever Brewers Road Crew Spring Training road trip will be from March 10 – 14, 2010–perfect timing as the cold Wisconsin winter is dragging on. Brewers Enterprises, led by Jason Hartlund and his crew, have really put together a complete package and have taken out the hassle of figuring out details of a Spring Training trip.
Fans that are a part of the trip will get to see two games at the Brewers Spring Training home, Maryvale Baseball Park. They will also get to see the Brewers take on the Chicago White Sox at Glendale’s Camelback Ranch. Camelback Ranch opened in 2008 and is the Spring Training home of the White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. I have been to all the Cactus League ballparks and, in my opinion, Camelback Ranch and Maryvale Baseball Park are two of the best Spring Training experiences in the Cactus League. Game tickets and transportation are included to all three games.
Guests on the trip will stay at the Embassy Suites Biltmore in Phoenix. It is one of the best locations in the Valley. It is centrally located to great shopping, dining and golf locations. You can literally walk right across the street to the Biltmore Fashion Park, filled with great restaurants and shopping. The guestrooms in the hotel are two-room suites which make for plenty of room. The hotel will host a special welcome reception for the Brewers Road Trip that will feature visits from Brewers front office personnel.
As an added bonus, included in the trip is a Loge Outfield ticket to Brewers Opening Day, Monday, April 5, 2010 vs. Colorado. They really have thought of everything when planning this trip! There will be other surprises along the way for guests of the trip including an opportunity to run in the Klement’s Sausage Race at Maryvale Baseball Park.
Space is limited to only eighty (80) guests and the travel packages go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, November 24) at 10 a.m. The price for a single traveler is $1,995 and the price for a couple (double occupancy) $3,695. Each additional guest per room is $1,850. If you need more information, visit brewers.com/roadcrew or call 414-902-GOAZ (4629) and some of the wonderful people in Brewers Enterprises will help you out.
Spring Training is a “must visit” for every Brewers fan and this is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Brewers Spring Training baseball.
