Bernie Brewer Set to Travel to Spring Training; First Game on Saturday

I just got word that Bernie Brewer is going to making his way down to Arizona this weekend for the Brewers Cactus League home opener vs. the Oakland A’s on Saturday.

Bernie broke the news in a tweet earlier today:

I sent him an email (you know, because he doesn’t talk) to find out more details.

“I’m leaving tomorrow, got a flight on Southwest. I heard we’re supposed to get a little snow here in Milwaukee–hope it doesn’t impact my flight… Looks like it’s going to be a little arctic for the Arctic Tailgate on Saturday!” [For those unfamiliar, that’s the date that individual tickets go on sale.]

“A little sad that I will miss my everyone at Arctic Tailgate–first time in seven years!-but I’m so excited to see all my friends, like Ax, Ryan, Luc, Rickie… so pumped! I’ve got all my bags packed already and I’m even taking some of my equipment. I figured why not… you know, bags fly free, might as well, and hopefully I’ll get to take a little BP!”

Bernie told me he’ll be taking in a practice on Friday and then the games this weekend, so if you’re down in Arizona as part of the #CactusCrew, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Bernie!

I offered to give him a lift to the airport since I’ll be headed down there this weekend myself, so hopefully I’ll have an update for you on his travels. I’m sure he’ll also be tweeting along his journey, so remember to follow him here.

Stay tuned!
