Yesterday, Brewers Community Foundation visited the 13th Annual Braille Games at Gaenslen School.
This is an event where blind and visually impaired children and adults can use braille in a fun and interactive way.
This year’s theme was baseball and Brewers Community Foundation brought the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages along.
It was fun to see the participants get to know the sausages through touch. Here are a few photos from the event:

If you were among the 39,000 plus who attended yesterday’s Brewers vs. Pirates game, you were treated to a beautiful rendition of our national anthem performed by 6-year-old Liamani Segura.
Here are just a few of the comments we came across via Twitter:
We were so blown away that we had to get it up online to share:
Liamani is of no relation to the Brewers shortstop. To learn more about the little girl with the big voice, you can check out her website at LiamaniSegura.com.
For players, the song they choose for their walk-up or entrance music is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?
If you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you probably enjoy seeing this list each year—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.
DID YOU KNOW? Make sure you download the free Ballpark App! In addition to check-in offers, ballpark maps, game updates and more, one of the really cool features is “Ballpark Music.” Like a song you hear? Check it out on Ballpark–and you can even download it right there! No Shazam necessary!

Today, all fans in attendance received received the first All-Fan Giveaway of the 2015 season: a Rob Deer Bobblehead, featuring his pose from the cover of the April 1987 Sports Illustrated. The photo was of Deer celebrating after hitting the game-tying home run on Easter Sunday which would help give the Crew their 12th straight win to start the season,
And Rob Deer himself was on-hand to help celebrate the occasion.
The former slugger came out to warm welcome as he tossed a ceremonial first pitch prior to today’s game vs. the Pirates.
Rob also sat down with Brewers radio broadcaster Jeff Levering to answer some of your questions in an interview for next week’s edition of the Brewers On Tap podcast.
Deer also signed autographs for fans during the game.
To kick off the 2015, Major League Baseball has launched a new marketing campaign, which is simply “THIS.”
THIS is shorthand for “This is baseball.” A THIS moment illuminates an aspect of the game in a fresh, insightful and authentic way. It draws attention to those moments that only happen in baseball, those moments that illustrate why baseball is the most entertaining game in the world.
THIS is a social prompt that tells people that there is something that they must see and moments for which there is nothing left to say but simply – look at “THIS”.
The campaign aims to highlight athletic performance of players, the culture of the game, the relationship between the players, the clubs and the fans, and all of the wonderful personalities around baseball.
While the Brew Crew was down in Arizona from Spring Training, a crew from Major League Baseball captured THIS moments with Carlos Gomez, Scooter Gennett, Will Smith and Kyle Lohse.
First, THIS: Carlos Gomez. Foul Pole.
And then, THIS: Kyle Lohse. Scooter!
This was a really fun TV shoot to be a part of. Here are some extra photos from that day:
Also, as a footnote (and because I know he’d probably want me to mention it), each of the guys attempted to hit the foul pole with a baseball during the shoot and Kyle Lohse was actually the first one to do so, something you wouldn’t expect from a pitcher.
He then had fun trying it again…. this time with a golf ball and clubs. That didn’t take long:
