Finding Your Favorite Foods at Miller Park

At the beginning of the season, I told you about all the new concessions offerings at Miller Park this season–from  nachos on a stick to doughnut + custard sandwiches, there are lots of new things to try when you come out to support the Crew.

One of the most frequent questions we get on social media is “Where can I find [insert delicious concession item] here?”

Well, if you have the free Ballpark App, locating these items is now easier than ever.

Simply click on the “Miller Park Eats” tab and you’ll find a selection of featured items for the current month, along with price and where to find them in the stadium.

7th Annual Weather Day a Success

Today, over 11,000 school-age children came out to Miller Park as part of our 7th annual Weather Day event.

First, they took part in a pregame program presented in conjunction with TODAY’S TMJ4 and featured special appearances by Jerry Augustine, Ron Roenicke, Bernie Brewer, the Klements World Famous Sausages, and Hank the Ballpark Pup. The event ended with much fanfare as a cloud was manufactured at home plate:

Following the program, the kids took part in interactive science fair featuring Discovery World, The Milwaukee Public Museum, The Mitchell Park Domes and Ready Wisconsin, before settling in to watch the Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds.

Here are some photos from this fun morning at Miller Park:

Carlos Gomez and LULAC Provide Scholarship Funds

Since 1975, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) councils have been providing scholarships to Hispanic students in the Milwaukee community. LULAC offers scholarships for high school seniors, undergraduate and graduate college students.

Last year, Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez partnered with LULAC to create the Carlos Gomez Hispanic Scholarship Fund to provide more scholarships to Hispanic students who are interested in attending college in Wisconsin.

Today, Carlos and Dr. Arturo Martinez, LULAC State Director, Member Council 333, were on hand to present a $4,000 check to Christine McGee, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Area Technical College Foundation. The foundation will match that amount to provide scholarships for Hispanic students who will be attending MATC this fall.

Thanks to @c_gomez27, LULAC & the MATC Foundation for supporting education.

RBI Athlete of the Month: Tomas Pinet, Jr.

Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, or the RBI Program, is a MLB youth baseball initiative and partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI program was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth ages 9 to 17 the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball. Each month, we honor RBI student athletes on the diamond that portray dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership, reliability and monthly performance.

This first honoree of 2015 is Tomas Pinet, Jr.

Tomas Pinet JR

Tomas is a freshman at Rufus King International High School and is an outstanding student with a 4.0 GPA.  Tomas started playing baseball for the Felix Mantilla and then Beckum Stapleton. He’s been playing with the RBI Traveling team for the last three years. Tomas is a very skilled pitcher with pinpoint accuracy and command of the zone.  He is also a solid hitter and a good base runner.  Last season, he was voted MVP.

When Tomas is not playing baseball, he is volunteering at St. Vincent DePaul Society on the Southside of Milwaukee. He is considered a role model too many, an asset to his team and a leader to his teammates.

Thanks, Tomas, for your passion for baseball and contributions to the community!

Tomas was honored in a pregame ceremony tonight and tossed out a ceremonial first pitch:

Want to help support the RBI Program? It’s as simple as sending a tweet!

When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF  and include our handle, @Brewers.

That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation! 

We won $40,000 last season, so keep tweeting to help us support our local program again in 2015! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.

The Brewers Community Achievers Program recognizes residents throughout the state of Wisconsin each month during the season for displaying extraordinary efforts in their community.

As the founder of Racine Uncovered and We Are Racine (WAR) Advocacy Center, Beth is changing lives one person at a time. The WAR Center provides assistance and resources for individuals and families in improving the quality of life in Racine. Beth helps underprivileged kids by providing lunch and activities during the summer and help with homework during the school year. This year, she coordinated PeaceFest for the residents of Racine, to help bridge the gap with Police Officers and Firefighters so everyone can work together for positive change and get our community back. Beth has worked tirelessly and unselfishly to make lives better for the residents in Racine.

Thank you, Beth, for serving families in need and making the community a better place.

Do you know someone who is a Community Achiever?

Perhaps they started a neighborhood clean-up program, volunteered to prepare meals for their elderly neighbors or even performed some feat of heroism. Nominate them today by clicking here.

All adults and school-aged children throughout the state of Wisconsin are eligible to participate in the Community Achievers Award program.
