Brett Phillips Takes Over @Brewers Twitter Account as Fans Clamor to #AskMaverick
Yesterday at Brewers On Deck, I had the chance to sit down with top Brewers OF prospect Brett Phillips for a Twitter Q&A.
Brett was recently ranked ninth among MLB’s OF prospects and fans were excited to get their questions answered by him, using our special new Q&A app from Twitter, which allows for customized video responses.
Fans submitted questions using the hashtag #AskMaverick and the questions ranged from those such as how he got the nickname Maverick and his role models growing up to some of his favorite things and what he thinks about Milwaukee.
You can view all of Brett’s responses on our @Brewers Twitter feed, but we pulled a few highlights for you, here.

And my personal favorite…On Brett’s Twitter profile, he lists himself as a “4th Grade Spelling Bee Finalist,” so one astute fan asked him what word he failed on:
Poor Brett, looks like that word will always haunt him!
We had so much fun with Brett, we were sad to have to wrap-up, but he went on to bigger and better things at the event, like tying in Brewers Jeopardy!
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to give Brett a follow @Brett_Phillips8. We wish him the best and hope to see him back in Milwaukee soon!
