Get Your Individual Tickets Early Through this Exclusive Presale!

Sometimes, it’s good to be a follower.

As in, this Friday, February 27, from 9am-5pm CT when our followers on social media will have the chance to purchase individual game tickets before they go on sale to the general public on February 28 in conjunction with the Brewers Arctic Tailgate event.

SocialMediaPresale_header

Here’s how it works–if you don’t already follow us on Twitter, click here and follow @Brewers. (Not on Twitter? No worries–it’s free and now is the perfect time to sign up! Just don’t blame me when you find yourself addicted to the service. #ILoveTwitter)

Then, just watch our account. Along with all of the news, insider updates and information that we normally share on Twitter, we’ll be tweeting out a special password that you’ll need to be able to take advantage of this special pre-sale opportunity. You’ll use that password on Friday at brewers.com/socialpresale.

We’ll also be doing the same on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+ and, even our newest platform set to launch later this week, Snapchat (coming soon, stay tuned for details).

Once you receive the password, you’ll be able to log in at brewers.com/socialpresale on Friday, February 27 from 9am to 5pm CT, where you’ll have the chance to purchase individual game tickets to 80 home games (sorry guys, no Opening Day through this presale) before the general public gets their shot on Saturday morning. There will be an eight (8) ticket limit per game for this online sale.

So what you need to do between now and Friday:

1. Be sure you’re following us on all of the channels noted above (or at least one!).

2. Familiarize yourself with the 2015 schedule so when the time comes, you know exactly which games you want to snag. Are you going for the #20In15 All-Fan Bobblehead and/or T-Shirt games? Or maybe you’re looking to lock in your 5-County or Spring Madness dates? Maybe you want to check out the Royals, Indians, White Sox or Twins when they come to town for Interleague play? View the full promotional schedule here.

So this year, you may just want to avoid the cold and camp out in front of your computer instead. Or, if you’re still planning to attend Arctic Tailgate for the camaraderie and/or your shot at Opening Day tickets*, you could also still take advantage of this opportunity while you’re waiting in line–yep, shopping online while waiting in line.  Thank you, technology.

Movies with Matt: Film Aficionado Matt Clark Makes His Oscars Picks & Predictions

At Brewers On Deck, through his  Twitter & Instagram Q&A, we learned that Matt Clark loves the movies:

In fact, he is a self-professed “Film Aficionado” according to his Twitter bio:

CLARK TWITTER

So, we made Matt his own special Oscars Ballot where he could make his own picks (who he would give the awards to if he had his say) and his predictions (who he thinks the Academy will choose). His official picks and predictions for the top five categories were also placed in special sealed envelopes and he unveiled them on Twitter this afternoon, leading up to the Academy Awards.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Matt, who made headlines earlier this year for his live tweeting of The Bachelor, tells me he’ll try to live tweet along with the broadcast tonight, so be sure to follow him @MattClark60 for his opinions and insight and to see how his picks and predictions hold up!

2/23 Update: True to his word, Matt Clark did indeed live tweet the entire Academy Awards ceremony last night and his predictions held up fairly well, going 16 for 24 and falling just one shy of former Brewers pitcher John Axford who, after pitching a perfect Oscars game last year, took over MLB’s Twitter account during the event.

If Matt had gone with his gut and used a couple more of his picks as predictions, he would have been 18 for 24–pretty darn impressive!

Here are some highlights:

Rob Deer Bobblehead Photos Are In!

Individual tickets go on sale on Saturday at 9am CT (but stay tuned for information on a special presale opportunity!) and, just in time, we’ve got a sneak peek at some of the bobbleheads for the 2015 season!

In April of 1987, a photo of Rob Deer celebrating after hitting the game-tying home run on Easter Sunday to give the Crew their 12th straight win to start the season, graced the cover of Sports Illustrated:

Twenty-eight years later he’s immortalized in bobblehead form:

7TH ANNUAL DAVEY NELSON CELEBRITY GOLF TOURNAMENT SET FOR JUNE 29

On Monday, June 29, Brewers Director of Alumni Relations and FOX Sports Wisconsin Broadcaster Dave Nelson will host his seventh annual Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler, Wisconsin.

This event is always a blast, so I encourage you to sign up! Click here to read last year’s event recap.

The Tournament will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the Irish Course at Whistling Straits and will be followed by a cocktail reception, silent as well as live auctions, and dinner.

All teams in the tournament will be comprised of a five-person group, and play will consist of a scramble format with team prizes awarded to the top finishers. Registrations are being accepted as a foursome and a celebrity golfer will be paired with each group to make up the five person team. Registration fees are $2,700 per foursome. A golf clinic led by American Club golf pros and a putting contest will take place at 9:00 a.m., and a light breakfast will be served prior to the start of the tournament. The tournament is limited to 30 foursomes. For those who do not care to golf, tickets to Monday night’s reception are available for $150 per person.

An additional preview event is scheduled for Sunday, June 28, consisting of a golf experience at Whistling Straits, Straits Course followed by a cocktail reception and dinner at the Championship Locker Room Terrace. This is an especially cool opportunity, this year more than others, as the Straits Course is the site of the 2015 PGA Championship, which will take place this August. Rates for the preview event are $6,400, which also includes registration for Monday’s event.

Proceeds will benefit Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa and Brewers Community Foundation. For sponsorship opportunities, additional information or to sign up for this memorable golfing experience, visit brewers.com/Davey or contact Meredith Malone at meredith.malone@brewers.com or (414) 902-4501.

Open Arms Home for Children is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, clothing, protection and basic healthcare for what is now home to many children orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic in South Africa. Davey Nelson has served as Board Director for the organization for over four years.
