Photos from Brewers MLB Draft War Room

I just stopped up to the Brewers MLB Draft War Room on the Terrace Level of Miller Park.  As expected, the room is buzzing with activity.  Brewers Director Amateur Scouting Bruce Seid was seated front in center of the room, with his support staff surrounding him.

President of Baseball Operations – General Manager Doug Melvin welcomed Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio who arrived with his son, Dan, and fellow Advisory Board Member, Eric Siegel, just minutes before the Astros made the first overall selection.

Another special guest in the room was Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke who has previously expressed interest in following in the footsteps of Brewers Special Assistant to the General Manager Craig Counsell and one day working in the front office.

Here are some photos from the room:

The Brewers will make the 27th, 28th and 38th selections tonight.  The draft is currently airing live on MLB Network.  We expect the Brewers to make their first selection around 8:37 p.m. CT.  Melvin and Seid are expected to address a group of media assembled with me and Brewers Media Relations Coordinator Ken Spindler in the media interview room (I’d take photos of that, but it really isn’t as exciting).  We have pizza, salad and a special MLB Draft cookie (Adam McCalvy has already torn into that) down here!

We will continue to keep you updated on the Brewers Draft throughout the night.
