Sunday, May 5: Corey Hart Bobblehead Day presented by Kwik Trip
The third bobblehead of the 2013 season will come on Sunday, May 5 as the Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals. The bobblehead will feature Brewers first baseman Corey Hart in a 1913 Brewers uniform and is presented by Kwik Trip.
Wait a minute, you say, the Brewers, formerly the Seattle Pilots, didn’t come to Milwaukee until 1970….
Yes, that’s correct, but there was a Minor League team called the Milwaukee Brewers who played in the American Association for 50 years, from 1902-1952, the team that became the eventual namesake for our beloved Crew!
The Brewers won their first American Association championship in 1913 and repeated the next year. All told the American Association Brewers won eight pennants in their fifty-one seasons.
Thus, we’ll honor the 100th anniversary American Association Brewers on May 5 with this Corey Hart bobblehead.
This is the second Brewers bobblehead for Corey Hart; the Nashville Sounds also honored Corey with a bobblehead this past season.
Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but if you want to secure your tickets early, Corey’s bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:
