Voting for July We Energies High-Energy Player of the Month Now Open

The voting for the July “We Energies High-Energy Player of the Month” is now open through Aug. 15. Fans may vote for first baseman Adam Lind, shortstop Jean Segura, or starting pitchers Taylor Jungmann or Jimmy Nelson as the player they feel best contributed to the Brewers success in the month of July through outstanding and high-energy play on the field.

Each month, Brewers fans have the opportunity to vote for the Brewers player they feel was deserving of the We Energies High-Energy Player of the Month during the previous month of play. Fans can visit www.brewers.com/WeEnergies and choose between four finalists. Finalists are selected based on player stats, high-energy plays on the field and overall contribution to the team during the previous month. Votes from each Player of the Month voting period will be carried over to the final “We Energies High-Energy Player of the Year” vote to be held from Sept. 7 – 15.

Through the online voting campaign presented by We Energies, fans then have the chance to enter to win a number of great prizes, including Brewers game tickets or the Grand Slam Prize Pack. One lucky fan will be randomly selected to receive Field Diamond Box tickets for six guests and will participate in a pre-game ceremony on the field when the Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs on Friday, Oct. 2, 2015. The winner will also receive an autographed jersey signed by the High-Energy Player of the Year, the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and the use of a Club Level suite for a 2016 Brewers home game.

During the voting period and even after, fans are encouraged to visit brewers.com/WeEnergies to enter to win prizes.

Adam Lind is now a two-time We Energies High-Energy Player of the Month, winning the inaugural vote for April and again for the month of June. Ryan Braun was voted the High-Energy Player for May.

“Strike Out Stroke” Visits Miller Park

During tonight’s pregame ceremonies, we presented a special stroke symptom awareness event, “Strike Out Stroke”

Strike Out Stroke was born out of the non-profit organization, Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp. Stroke Camps began 10 years ago by Marylee Nunley and her husband John, a stroke survivor, who recognized the need for a weekend of relaxation, pampering, support, and camaraderie for stroke survivors, their families, and their care-givers. Since Stroke Camps humble beginning 10 years ago, it has grown to reach 12 states and continues to grow every camp season.

Through their work, Marylee and Larry Schaer, another Camp founder, found there was a great need in stroke education across the country, and thus the idea for Strike Out Stroke was born five years ago. The simple mission of Strike Out Stroke is to spread the F.A.S.T message across the country and greatly increase the number of stroke survivors who get to the hospital in time to get life-saving treatment. Strike Out Stroke continues to grow every summer, reaching over 20 professional baseball markets along with planning and creating new stroke awareness campaign across the country.

Stroke is an emergency, a brain attack cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain, and 800,000 strokes will occur in the United States this year. It is the number one cause of adult disability and the fourth leading cause of death. Stroke can happen to young and old.

We were honored to have stroke survivors from our community join us tonight.

Tom Pfeifer, now 71, was 58 at the time of his stroke. At the time, he was the director of Wisconsin Workforce Development. Unable to walk or talk after his stroke, with great determination and perseverance, Tom is now living independently. He is a huge sports fan and was honored to be on the field with his beloved Brew Crew.

Michelle Nelson was only 33 when she was struck by the first of her three strokes. Unable to return to her job in the paper mills following these devastating strokes, Michelle visits rehabilitation centers regularly to help other sin recovery and brings her dogs along to share the joy they bring nursing home residents.

 

Joe Romensco suffered a stroke at age 48. An avid bicyclist, Joe had just completed a 100-mile bike tour when he had his stroke. Following concentrated months of physical, occupational and speech therapy, today Joe is an active volunteer, helping other survivors experience freedom through adapative cycling.

Finally, Alan Schoenwetter, a stroke survivor who has overcome complete paralysis of his left side, was on hand to throw out tonight’s ceremonial first pitch as a representative of Strike Out Stroke.

Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 7/30/15

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!
