We’ve Heard the Barking: Here’s Your BobbleHank; Financial Donations by Brewers and Players, Adopt-a-Pet and Pet Supply Collection Drive to Benefit Rescue Organizations Also Tied Into Wisconsin Humane Society Day

In response to overwhelming popular demand, we announced today that we are adding a 15th all-fan giveaway to the schedule in 2014: a BobbleHank.

In case you missed it, we teased this announcement earlier this week:

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” will be featured as a ninth Bobblehead to be given away to all-fans as part of a Wisconsin Humane Society Day on Saturday, September 13 at Miller Park. The Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds that evening at 6:10 pm.

Tickets to the game are available now through Brewers.com, at the Miller Park Box Office, and by calling 414-902-4000.

A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for that game will be donated by the Brewers to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund,” a pool that benefits stray animals in their care transferred from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission, as well as stray animals at the WHS Ozaukee and Racine Campuses. Brewers players have stepped forward and also will contribute to the fund.

“We had Hank down here with us for almost a month, and he became one of the most popular guys in the clubhouse,” said Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler, who actively supports the Wisconsin Humane Society through financial contributions and participation in other initiatives. “We wanted to do something special to benefit other animals who are stray, homeless or have other needs, and there’s no better cause than helping build this fund.”

Brandon Kinztler bonded with Hank during Spring Training in AZ.

The team, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Humane Society, will sponsor numerous initiatives that evening, including an Adopt-a-Pet event on the Miller Park concourse where fans can meet four-legged friends available for adoption. In addition, all weekend long fans are encouraged by Brewers Community Foundation to bring new pet supplies that will be distributed to area rescue organizations as part of the “Drive for Charity.” Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; stainless steel food and water bowls. Those donating will receive a special commemorative pin with Hank’s likeness to mark the occasion.

“Hank has crossed every demographic and is so much more than just a sports or pop-culture phenomenon,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We’re seeing that his story can brighten everyone’s day, but it also greatly benefits these worthy organizations that do so much good in our community.”

Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day, and their staff provided counsel on how best to care for Hank’s basic needs as he adjusted to his new surroundings. Hank’s circle of caregivers in Phoenix worked tirelessly to ensure that he had the best care possible until his “forever home” was determined.

“Our heartfelt gratitude to the Milwaukee Brewers and our local community cannot be overstated,” said Anne Reed, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Humane Society. “Hank has inspired us all with his storybook tale, and we so appreciate this generous donation, as well as the opportunity to showcase homeless dogs on Adopt-a-Pet Day.”

Hank made frequent appearances at Spring Training games in a concourse booth, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society. Through these and other opportunities, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars to support the cause.

Hank arrived in Milwaukee on March 16 on a Southwest Airlines charter flight and made his Miller Park debut last week as merchandise bearing his image was released at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic.  Twenty-percent of sales of Hank merchandise will be donated back to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund.”

Kyle Lohse Bobblehead Revealed

As you know, this year, we’ve got our #Brewers14in14… 14 All-Fan Giveaways–8 bobbleheads and 6 t-shirts–during the 2014 season!

As we get images of the bobbles, we’ll unveil them here and across our social media channels.

So far, we’ve revealed the first bobblehead of the season, the Carlos Gomez Gold Glove bobblehead on Sunday, April 27 vs. the Chicago Cubs.

Now, we’ve got the second bobblehead here for you–the Kyle Lohse bobblehead, presented by Toyota, on Sunday, May 11 vs. the New York Yankees.

MB-14-Lohse-Bobble-social

The bobblehead is posed in his windup and features Lohse’s signature goatee.

I caught up with Kyle to get his thoughts on the bobblehead. “It looks pretty cool,” he said…  and then he informed me that he’s never had a bobblehead before. I was incredulous. This is a World Series Champion who was drafted in 1996,  made his Major League debut in 2001, has played in six Major League organizations…and he’s never been immortalized in bobble form?!?

“I guess I finally made it,” he said with a smile.

Individual tickets  are on sale now and the May 11 game is sure to be a hot ticket. Not only is it Kyle Lohse Bobblehead Day, but it is also Mother’s Day, plus we’re playing the Yankees and it’s Brewers fans last chance to see Derek Jeter play at Miller Park before he retires.

In short, you’ll want to visit brewers.com or call (414) 902-4000 to secure yours today!
