Brewers fans have been asked to show their creativity in an interactive contest called “Create a Commercial.” The list of entries has been judged by Brewers officials and narrowed down to four finalists.
- “Yes” – Jesse from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
- “Diamond” – Brent from Madison, Wisconsin
- “Think Brewers” – Andrew from Sherwood, Wisconsin
- “First Ball Game” – Aaron from Lockport, Illinois
Fans can read the submissions and vote for their favorite commercial at Brewers.com/commercial from today through Sunday, March 23 at 11:59 p.m. CT to ultimately select the winning entry. The winner will get the chance to direct and/or star in a professional commercial that will air at Miller Park, on FOX Sports Wisconsin during a Brewers broadcast, and online. The winner will also receive a Brewers prize package including game tickets and a Brewers director’s chair.
The winning commercial will be produced at the beginning of the season by the Madison-based production company, Provideo. An air date is to be determined based on production schedules.
Yesterday was Pet Adoption Day at Maryvale Baseball Park an event benefiting and organized by the Arizona Humane Society and our very own #BallparkPup, Hank and it was a success, raising awareness and dollars for a great cause.
Although Hank made many guest appearances, he was not up for adoption. Four of his friends on site, and thousands more at shelters in Arizona, Wisconsin and elsewhere, were available (and, so far at least two of the dogs on site have found new homes).
Hank met each of the animals who were brought out by the Arizona Humane Society, and he did a half-inning in a photo boothwhere, for a donation to the Humane Society, Hank posed for fans with photos.
There was also the opportunity for “pawtographs”–when purchasing a Brewers Spring Training Program, Brewers staff will use a rubber paw stamp to “sign” Hank’s photo.
Due to the heat, Hank was only able to accommodate a fraction of the fans who wanted photos, but more than $1,000 in donations have been raised through fan donations as a result of Hank’s photos & pawtographs.
Did you take a photo with Hank at a recent game? Have more great Spring Training photos to share with us? Be sure to tag #CactusCrew on Twitter and/or Instagram for your chance to win great Brewers prizes! Also, we’re using #BallparkPup for Hank-related posts, so you’ll want to tag that as well!
Along with the many other enhancements this winter at Miller Park, fans will be able to enjoy year-round dining in a renovated TGI Fridays as the space is scheduled for upgrades this month, as part of a new contemporary design being implemented at Fridays restaurants throughout the country.
“Fridays is a popular dining destination for our fans year-round,” said Milwaukee Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We look forward to enhancing the facility as it contributes to the best fan experience in a Major League Baseball ballpark.”
The facility, which covers 6,000 square feet, will see an improved restaurant dining experience. The newly-redesigned Fridays will create a fun, energetic vibe with a dramatically redesigned bar as the focal point of the restaurant, complemented with favorite Fridays menu items.
The project includes interior modifications and upgrades, new brick wall surfaces, updated finishes and décor and lighting improvements. The modernized bar will feature a new granite surface with stainless steel rails, LED accent lighting, custom wood paneling at the bar back (accented by multi-color LED lighting), columns wrapped with subway tile and new seating. The project also includes exterior façade enhancements at the entrances located on the field level concourse.
“The new design of Fridays’ reimaged restaurants, coupled with our fresh, hand crafted food and drinks, has been extremely well-received in other markets. We are excited to be bringing these changes to Milwaukee where they will be complemented by the contagious energy and personality of the Fridays’ team members who love providing a great experience to every guest,” said Ricky Richardson, President, TGI Fridays USA. “Brewers fans are upbeat, friendly and fun – just like Fridays – and we look forward to continuing to be a central place where Brewers fans gather and celebrate for many more years to come.”
The new redesign is tailored to the Milwaukee community and location, and is part of a larger re-imaging campaign that Fridays will roll out over the next three years.
NOTE: In order to accommodate the construction project, Fridays will be closed for construction starting at 10 pm on March 9 and is scheduled reopen for business, unveiling the new look the afternoon of March 15.
Other Miller Park improvement projects underway for 2014 include a redeveloped Toyota Territory, Brewers Team Store by Majestic expansion, a new Authentics Kiosk, the addition of an AJ Bombers facility, the new Brewers Wall of Honor, a Bob Uecker “Last Row” statue, refurbishment of the East Lot Tailgate Pavilions and new flat-panel televisions on the concourses.
3/10/14 Update: Here are some photos from the project!

Are you planning on attending this Saturday’s Brewers vs. Royals game at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix?
We’ve just announced that Saturday will be “Pet Adoption Day,” benefiting and organized by the Arizona Humane Society and our very own #BallparkPup, Hank.
The Society will have animals available for adoption on site at the game and, for those donating to the Arizona Humane Society, Hank will also be available for photos immediately after the Klement’s Famous Sausage Race.
Today we announced the return of a unique ticket promotion known as the “Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan Presented by Potawatomi,” which allows fans the chance to upgrade their seats to the next highest ticket category every time the Brewers win.
Only a limited number of plans will be available, and they go on sale tomorrow. Tickets for this promotion sold out in 2013 – the first year of the promotion – and fans will want to act quickly. Last season, the Brewers won six games during the promotion and fans that purchased this ticket plan advanced to the Field Outfield Box.
Here’s how the Ticket Plan works: For just $99, you get tickets to nine select Tuesday games at Miller Park, plus the chance to advance all the way to the Field Diamond Box. You start with seats in Bernie’s Terrace for all nine games, but with each Brewers win, you upgrade your seating area. On Tuesday, May 6, you’ll sit in Bernie’s Terrace for the first game of the plan against the Arizona Diamondbacks. If the Crew wins, you will advance to the next seating tier for the following game in the plan.
Every time the Brewers win, you will simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket for a ticket in the next best seating area for only $2. You remain in that seat location until the Brewers win the next game in the plan. If the Brewers don’t win, simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket at no cost for a seat in the same section where you last advanced – no backsliding.
|Ticket Plan Game Dates:|

Yesterday, Hank made his second trip to the vet office as he has a small issue with his left eye.
“There’s no need to put him on the disabled list,” said Brewers VP of Communications, Tyler Barnes. “In baseball terms, he’s just ‘day to day.’“
While the main cause is not known, it is likely just related to allergies as the desert in Arizona is beginning to bloom. The vet has prescribed medication for the next week until it clears up.
Hank fans need not fear. After a day of rest yesterday, Hank was seen out and about around Maryvale today where he took a stroll around the warning track
and also met with some of his adoring fans.

Today, in honor of the 86th Annual Academy Awards, I asked some of the players to make their picks for Best Pic. Check them out below:
Looks like “Captain Phillips” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” were the leaders in the Clubhouse! What do you think?
I also caught up with President of Baseball Operations-General Manager Doug Melvin, who is a big movie buff. While many of the players told me they had only seen one or two movies up for an award, Doug had made it a point to see all nine nominees.
Here are Doug’s picks for the top three categories:
Best Picture: “The Wolf of Wall Street” was Doug’s favorite. He also enjoyed “12 Years a Slave” and “Nebraska.” “‘Her’ was very good, too,” Doug said. “Joaquin Phoenix was outstanding. The story was good, a little sappy.”
Best Actor in a Leading Role: “To me, it’s a toss up between Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ and Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’” Doug said. “I could see McConaughey winning. I also thought Chiwetel Ejiofor in ’12 Years a Slave’ was very good, as was Bruce Dern in ‘Nebraska.’”
Best Actress in a Leading Role: “I’m going to go with Amy Adams in ‘American Hustle,’” he said.
One other item of note, outfielder Logan Schafer told me that he hadn’t seen any of the nominees, but “I have read the book, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’” he said. “I’m more of a reader.”
So there you have it, Brewers Oscars picks. We’ll have to tune in tonight at 6pm CT to see how they did!
Since John and I are down in Arizona for Spring Training, I asked Evan Entler, our Marketing & Advertising Coordinator to fill in for me back home on the Arctic Tailgate front. Evan is new to the Brewers and Milwaukee (he was hired last fall, coming to Milwaukee by way of Florida where he previously worked with the Rays), so I thought getting his take on his first Arctic Tailgate experience would be fun. And I only had to bribe him with the new Taylor Swift album to get him to do it.
So without further adieu, here’s Evan, ladies and gentlemen!
My First Arctic Tailgate by Evan Entler
John and Cait are down at Spring Training working on their golf game and hanging out with Hank (#BallparkPup), so I am holding down the fort here in Milwaukee until they return. And as nice as 80 degrees sounds right about now, there is nowhere I would rather be than camping out at Miller Park with some of the craziest fans in all of sports.
This is my first season with the Brewers, so I had absolutely no idea what I was in for at my first ever Arctic Tailgate. Coming into the event, I thought I knew a little something about tailgating, but I quickly realized that you don’t know what tailgating is until you’ve tailgated with Brewers fans.
I came here from Florida, where people literally will not leave their house if the temperature drops below 60 degrees, so it took me a while to wrap my head around the whole concept of the Arctic Tailgate. Wait, people camp out in the middle of winter? Overnight? In Wisconsin? And they survive? But I was ready to learn how to tailgate from the very best. So I bundled up in my warmest winter attire and made my way outside Miller Park Friday afternoon expecting to see a grand total of eight shivering people in sleeping bags camped outside the ticket window. Instead, I saw a line of tents wrapping around the ballpark as far as I could see. And these were no pup tents. These were deluxe, heated tents straight out of a National Geographic special called Ascent to Everest.
I approached the very first group of campers in line and asked them how long they had been out here. They informed me that they had been there since Thursday night. “Wait a second,” I said, “I thought we sent out a press release informing fans not to camp overnight on Thursday due to the cold temperatures?” Their response, “Yeah, that’s true. So, we just camped out in our cars instead.” Apparently if sub-zero temperatures can’t stop Brewers fans from camping out for tickets, neither can a press release.
I met all kinds of awesome Brewers fans on Friday night – fans from all over the state, most of whom had camped out at every Arctic Tailgate for the last six, seven, eight years. Soon the cold began to get the best of me, however, so I took refuge in the Leinenkugel’s heated tent, where I discovered that Sumer Shandy is just as delicious in 20 degrees as it is in 80.
Now full disclosure – I have developed a certain fondness for sleeping indoors, so I decided that camping overnight in 15 degrees was not going to be for me. Hopefully by next year I will be a true Wisconsinite capable of braving the overnight elements. But I returned bright and early Saturday morning refreshed and ready to rejoin the tailgating. By this point, the line had migrated into the concourse, and stretched from the ticket office to the left-field corner. A night of frigid temperatures had by no means diminished the enthusiasm of these ardent Brewers fans who passed the hours until tickets went on sale by scouring their pocket schedules to determine what games they wanted to attend in 2014.
Of course, even the hardiest of Wisconsinites can grow weary standing in line for hours in the freezing cold, but just as energy was beginning to wane, fans were refreshed with doughnuts from Grebe’s Bakery. Shortly after, the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls made their way through the crowd to greet fans and fight off the cold by passing out handwarmers, and spirits were quickly revived.
Before we knew it, the clock struck 9, the box office opened and Brewers single-game tickets were officially on sale.
Now maybe you’re one of those people who really prefers to sleep in the great indoors, so you missed out on Arctic Tailgate. Not to worry! Single-game tickets are also available online at brewers.com. You can reserve your seats for some of this season’s biggest matchups including series against the Yankees, Cardinals and Cubs. But you should probably hurry, because tickets are going fast.
As for me, my first ever Arctic Tailgate experience was pretty incredible. I was truly overwhelmed by the passion of Brewers fans. I can hardly wait until Opening Day, when the real tailgating kicks off. It’s going to be a great season. #SeeUMarch31
