Memorial Day at Miller Park

Today is Memorial Day and here at Miller Park, we are honoring those who have served in several ways.

The USO was given 5,000 tickets for Military personnel and their families for today’s game and also played a role in shaping our pregame ceremonies.

For the pregame ceremonies, the USO provided today’s national anthem singer, Jennifer Schafer, who is a civilian; as well as ceremonial pitchers, representing each branch of military service.

The following groups also provided color guards for the game: United States Marine Corps Recruiting Station- Milwaukee; Navy Operational Support Center-Milwaukee; U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion- Milwaukee; and Wisconsin Air National Guard.

In addition, today, the Brewers are wearing special camouflage jerseys and caps.

Brewers Authentics will be selling the Memorial Day game-worn jerseys and caps at our Authentics Kiosk (located on the Field Level at Miller Park) and via the Brewers Charity Auction online. The game-worn memorabilia is available to be pre-ordered by contacting gameused@brewers.com and the auction is tentatively scheduled to start on Monday, June 6.

The Brewers Team Stores at Miller Park are also stocking the Memorial Day caps, jerseys, as well as a special camouflage t-shirt for a limited time.

Finally, the Brewers, along with Major League Baseball, will participate in the National Moment of Remembrance during the game at approximately 3:00 p.m. when we will pause to remember the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.

Thank you to those who have served and those who continue to serve our country.
