SEASON SEAT HOLDER BOB TERWALL NAMED “BREWER FOR A DAY”
Milwaukee Brewers season seat holder Bob Terwall has won the organization’s “Brewer for a Day” grand prize. The prize is randomly awarded to a season seat holder who renewed his or her tickets at the start of the season. Terwall, a season seat holder since 2002, signed a one-day Major League contract, which includes a full uniform plus one day’s pay at the Major League minimum salary. He was introduced at a press conference earlier this afternoon at Miller Park.
A lifelong baseball fan, Terwall grew up cheering for the Milwaukee Braves. His favorite player was Eddie Mathews, later Robin Yount and today Jonathan Lucroy – all admired for their work ethic and professional approach to the game.
“I was a Braves fan from the get-go. I followed those teams as a young boy. I also admired Robin Yount and guys like that who played the game hard everyday.” said Terwall, who also once played against Jim Gantner.
Terwall was a member of the 1969 Wisconsin state champion baseball team with Kenosha Tremper and pitched for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in the early 1970s. He continued playing the game in various independent leagues over the past 40 years. A native of Kenosha, Bob and his wife, Nancy, currently reside in Pleasant Prairie.
“We’re glad to have you. Thank you for your loyalty to the Brewers through good times and bad times. We need great fans like Bob. I think this is an exciting event that we’ve put together over the past four seasons,” said Brewers President of Baseball Operations/General Manager Doug Melvin.
In addition to the salary and uniform, Terwall will park in the VIP lot prior to tonight’s game against the New York Mets, receive fifty baseball cards with his likeness, a DVD of the highlight video shown at the press conference, a framed final page of his contract and he threw out the first pitch prior to the game:
