Where’s Polish? Spring Madness at Miller Park!
Well, we are up bright and early because it is quite the eventful morning here at Miller Park!
If you haven’t heard by now, the second Klement’s Famous Racing Sausage, Polish, went missing last Wednesday, which first became apparent when he didn’t show up for the Sausage Race during the game.
ITALIAN! Great race tonight to end the homestand, but

Well, this morning, we finally found out what he was up to! In preparation for Spring Madness, Polish had been hard at work. Not only had he gone missing from Miller Park, but, similar to Bernie’s effort in 2011, and Chorizo’s last year, Polish spent the hours mapping and planting over 2,000 Polish lawn ornaments in the grass areas surrounding Miller Park and its parking lots.
Beginning NOW (5 a.m. on Monday, May 13), fans may come to Miller Park to pick up their very own Polish Racing Sausage lawn ornament. If you find one, it’s yours to keep, but there is a limit of just one ornament per person.
Each lawn ornament is affixed with a pouch that includes game tickets for a Spring Madness game, set for May 20 through May 22 at Miller Park. The Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers during Spring Madness, and fans can save 50% on most tickets $34 or less. In addition, Klement’s hot dogs and small Pepsi products are just $1 each for all three games.
This scavenger hunt will continue until all ornaments have been claimed; the allotment is expected to be claimed quickly, so what are you waiting for? Come and try to get yours! [Please note: Parking is only available in the Molitor Lot, which is directly north of I-94. Fans should enter the Molitor Lot from Blue Mound Road and walk down Yount Drive to participate in the hunt. For official rules, click here.]
Did you find Polish? Upload a photo to Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #WHERESPOLISH and we might include yours in a recap gallery later today!
6:30am Update: All of the Polish ornaments are gone at Miller Park. Thanks to everyone who came out! We hope you had fun out there… And of course, we hope to see you back out at Miller Park for Spring Madness, May 20-22!
